Chad W. Miller
Mr. Miller has experience in a broad array of intellectual property matters including patent and trademark prosecution and related litigation. Mr. Miller practiced exclusively in the field of intellectual property for numerous years at several large firms in California, including Knobbe Martins, Olson and Bear, before moving to Nevada.

F. Chris Austin
Mr. Austin is a highly experienced commercial litigator and intellectual property lawyer with over 20 years of trial experience focused on helping businesses and individuals defend and protect their patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets.

He has also defended clients from unfair infringement claims often brought by competitors seeking to improperly use the court to limit competition.
Mr. Powers has practiced intellectual property law exclusively for the last nine years, eight of which was with two large law firms in Pittsburgh, PA. In this time, he has drafted from scratch over 250 patent applications, and has worked to secure quality patent protection in the U.S. and abroad for clients in the vast majority of those cases.
