Partner Jeanne Gills was quoted in an article that appeared in Crain’s Chicago Business on April 8, 2013 titled “Indie inventors beware: 'First to file' rewards the swiftest applicants.” Gills discussed the reduction in patent filing fees for companies with 50 or fewer employees that is enabled by the U.S. patent system’s transition to a “first-to-file” system, stating that the reduction helps independent investors reduce patent costs beginning with the patent application and throughout its life.
