"For a patent engineer and a law student aspiring to be a successful patent attorney, HBW's gold-standard prosecution practice and technical expertise serve as the foundation for learning the art of obtaining high-quality patents for our clients."
- Sikander Khan, Patent Engineer

"I have been employed at HBW as an International Patent Paralegal for about 7 years. I enjoy the interesting prosecution challenges I encounter from day to day. It's never dull, and I love keeping busy! I also love working within my community as it allows me to easily stay connected with family and friends, and sometimes I enjoy the commute via my bicycle (a perk that wasn't possible when working in Palo Alto). HBW also recognizes the importance of supporting community service and provides me with flexibility as a docent at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve where I give tide pool tours to students. Most of all, I really enjoy the people I work with."
- Kelly Huber, Patent Prosecution Paralegal

"With HBW's commitment to continued education and training, I am fortunate to have gained an abundance of patent law experience for the past 14 years. The casual, yet professional atmosphere makes HBW a warm and friendly place to work."
- Amy Jonsson, Patent Prosecution Specialist
