Our Story

Just over ten years ago, Bookoff McAndrews (BoMc) was established with the singular focus of providing the world’s leading technology companies with high quality, strategic patent counseling and prosecution. Clients quickly came to appreciate how we seamlessly integrate with their in-house legal and technical teams while providing thoughtful and attentive counsel structured around their ultimate business goals. As a result, BoMc has grown rapidly to meet the needs of our clients. What began as two founding partners has expanded to over 40 attorneys, 30 support professionals, scores of sophisticated high technology clients from startups to Fortune 500 companies around the world, and nationwide acclaim typically reserved for much more established, larger firms. From our clients to our team, we listen, we learn, and we deliver.

Our Partners

Our partnership is a reflection of our firm and the values most important to us. Our partners are diverse in thought and background. They are sincere, but not too serious. They are friendly and thoughtful. They lead by example. And yes, they have pretty exciting lives outside of work. Over a decade since the firm’s founding, the BoMc leadership team listens to each other, respects one another, works together, and pulls for each other to deliver exceptional results to our clients and team. This collaboration has helped our firm achieve top-tier distinction for both the work we do and the culture within the firm.
