About Caldwell IP

Caldwell Intellectual Property Law is a rapidly growing firm with a small but mighty roster of accomplished IP attorneys and technical specialists.

Recent and Rapid

Caldwell was founded in January 2016 by Keegan M. Caldwell, with the first office opening its doors in Burlington, VT. The following year, the firm opened a second office in Massachusetts, which has since grown and recently expanded to a spot in Boston’s John Hancock Tower. In 2021, the firm broadened its reach even further, opening a West Coast post in Santa Monica and its first international office in London. The firm’s rapid expansion recently earned it the No. 2 spot on the 2020 Law Firm 500 list, which recognizes the fastest growing U.S. law firms by revenue.

A Deep Bench of Experts

As an all-IP firm, Caldwell handles patent prosecutions, USPTO litigation and post-grant proceedings, patent portfolio strategy and management, trademark counseling and prosecution, licensing, and litigation. Clients range from startups to globally recognized brands, and the firm isn’t afraid to take on work in a variety of sectors—it has experience across industries such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, biofuels, medical devices, data security, internet technologies, process automation, mobile apps, social media, software, space exploration, and more. A strong bench of experts helps the firm tackle such a breadth—Caldwell attorneys and technical specialists have degrees in everything from pharmacy and neuroscience to physics and chemistry to electrical, mechanical, biomedical, and computer engineering.

Caldwell is a notable patent powerhouse. The firm boasts a USPTO allowance rate—the rate at which the USPTO issues patents—of over 99%. It also handles post-grant proceedings ranging from inter partes review (IPR), covered business method review (CBM), post-grant review (PGR) proceedings, inter partes and ex parte reexams, supplemental examinations, and derivation procedures. On a global scale, Caldwell helps clients seeking international patent protection navigate the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), and the firm is involved in more than 40 Section 337 investigations involving imported products.

Commit to Be Fit

Caldwell takes prides in fostering an environment of wellness. The firm offers free Equinox gym memberships for all employees, recognizing the importance of physical wellness for workplace morale and productivity. And if you browse the firm’s Instagram page, you’ll find a number of highlights demonstrating how individual attorneys and staff members make wellness a priority. Many are proponents of physical fitness and mindfulness practices, and managing member Keegan Caldwell himself shares that he runs a few miles every day and treats mental health as a number one priority.
