Representative Clients

Vidas, Arrett & Steinkraus is proud of the representation that we provide and the diverse clientele that we serve. Here are some of the things our clients have said about us...

Todd Messal, Patent Counsel at Boston Scientific, Inc., a Fortune 500 medical device manufacturer had this to say about us:

"I think they're interested in the success of Boston Scientific and me personally. I feel very supported by them. It's a partnership. People use that word a lot, but VAS makes me feel that they have as much of an interest in my business as I do. I have no hesitation and absolute confidence that Friday night at 10 pm, if an emergency arises, or I'm in Europe and need help, the whole firm is there for me.

In this day and age, when patent work is very expensive, one of their strengths is the value they provide; they do very good work at a reasonable cost. They're not a white-shirt and tie, downtown law firm and they know it. They concentrate on the substance."

Clement Kaiser of NOVATEC SA, a French research laboratory which develops new technologies for the electronics assembly industry, had this to say about us:

"The biggest benefit to me is the service and the ease of reaching a person by phone or email. They are efficient. They understand our business and innovations.

I appreciate their efficiency. We provide them with our thoughts and concerns and from that they are able to translate our claims into the right wording for the U.S. patent office. Their ability to understand our requests and translate them into the right wording is valuable.

I would recommend them. I would tell a friend that they can work in confidence with Vidas."

James Nenniger, Founding partner of Piasetzki & Nenniger, LLP, an intellectual property firm based in Toronto, had this to say about us:

Their knowledge and expertise in the rapidly changing area of U.S. patent law is important to me. Their careful attention to the long-term implications of the work that they are submitting now is also appreciated and important. Plus I appreciate their ability to work well within tight time deadlines.

They deliver a high quality of service for a reasonable price. That's their key strength. Their reliability is also very good. They're very good at meeting client expectations.

My relationship with them is very friendly, cordial and uncomplicated.

Mark Kroll, an Independent and Prolific Inventor, said the following about us:

The work has been fast, high quality, reasonably priced and I've seen good results. My relationship with my attorney at VAS is wonderful; I call or email and he responds within hours at the most, and always has good answers.

I'm extremely happy with the service and with the quality. I've worked with dozens of patent lawyers, I have over 260 issued U.S. patents and numerous international and pending patents and I'm an experienced consumer. I've worked with some lawyers who've done mediocre work or work that comes in late and others who've done quality work but charged disproportionately high rates. What VAS does best is deliver very high quality work at a reasonable price.

Chris Butler, General Counsel, Mathews Inc., had this to say about us:

What's made the most difference for me with VAS is their willingness to make my job easier. My client has a fairly large IP portfolio, which at the present time includes 29 patents, 35 trademarks and several copyrights. There is a considerable amount of administration that goes along with the maintenance of this IP, including application filings, renewals and annual maintenance fees. In working with VAS, we came up with an improved reporting process that greatly cut down on the amount of correspondence going back and forth. This required significant changes on the part of VAS, which they were willing to do to make my job easier. Their willingness to work with us has certainly added value to our relationship.

I've had the opportunity to work with all of the attorneys at VAS and have found each of them to be extremely competent in their counsel and very pleasant to deal with. The same can be said for their paralegals and administrative staff. I think their strengths are in their people and their commitment to the client. VAS provides excellent counsel and prompt service.

I would highly recommend this firm based on my personal experience. I've referred several clients to the VAS firm and have been told that they received excellent service.
