Challenge

In 2011, Raytheon, a leading defense contractor, realized they were engaged with several dozen outside law firms to handle just their IP issues.

Solution

Looking to streamline this roster, Raytheon set forth a Request for Proposal to a group of outside firms with the intent to select 10 firms. This chosen group would maximize efficiency and work product quality by leveraging the ability of each firm to develop specific expertise in one of Raytheon’s core technical areas.

Result

L&A is proud to have been selected as one of Raytheon’s preferred IP counsel. Through this partnership, our patent team has been able to develop deep technical expertise in one of Raytheon’s core business technologies. This approach has resulted in L&A developing deep domain knowledge and allows us to deliver strategic insight and value daily.
