Who we are

About Schott PC

Our Mission

Our goal is simple: Make the world a better place, one idea at a time. We achieve that goal by working with inventors and creative people to help them protect, share, license, develop, and sell their ideas though the application of idea law, which is intellectual property law that focuses on patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets.
