More About What We Do (literally & figuratively) :
Timon to the Poet: “You are an alchemist; make gold of that!” (Act V Timon of Athens, William Shakespeare).
Contextually, Pb2Au (‘lead to gold’) refers to the alchemy of transmutation from theory to practice that, though not mystical in nature, often mystifies and intimidates the uninitiated inventor.
Metaphorically, we are alchemists working with you to assemble all required elements, both tangible and otherwise, describing and defining your innovation, as necessary, to protect your intellectual property (IP); to analyze and characterize your development progress to the point of prototype testing, whether for clinical, engineering, or other practical purposes; and to examine your company’s capacity to commercialize and market effectively and profitably.
Let’s face it, your intellectual prowess notwithstanding; most of you inventors need step-by-step directions if you hope smoothly to negotiate that perilous pathway, strewn with obstacles, pitfalls, and (even) landmines between where you are now and your technological innovation’s ultimate landmark success. A creative scientist, this writer has been where you are now, knows this territory, and has both seen and heard myriad horror stories thereof. As one might expect, my legal and business colleagues have seen even worse missteps than have I. The worst of the breakdowns and ‘failures to thrive’ along the development trail is not merely what the hapless inventor forfeits, rather it is humanity’s tragic loss when a great idea tarnishes, founders, and sinks like lead into the abyss.
It is always best to learn, not from our own mistakes, but from those of others. Hopefully, the following philosophical outlook is illuminating in this context: "There is an alchemy in sorrow. It can be transmuted into wisdom, which, if it does not bring joy, can yet bring happiness." (The Child Who Never Grew, Pearl S. Buck, 1950)
Simply stated, our purpose is to review your IP to determine exactly where you are on the ‘long and winding road’ between drawing board and marketplace, and then to help plot a course effectively and efficiently to reach your goal. In conducting our work, we try to be entirely objective, treat the truth as sacrosanct, and never waste our time or your money.
