Established in 2004, by Seattle trial lawyer Philip P. Mann, the Mann Law Group has one primary mission: to level the playing field for those seeking access to the courts.

Enforcing patent and other  intellectual property rights is an extremely expensive proposition in today’s competitive business environment. Recent reports peg the average cost of taking a patent case through trial at over $2 million per case.

Privately held businesses, individuals, entrepreneurs and start-ups rarely have the financial strength to absorb legal expenses of this magnitude. Large, well-established companies, on the other hand, can afford such expense and, therefore, have the advantage. As a consequence, many good cases, defenses, and claims are either never pursued or are settled for far less than their actual value.

Recognizing that the traditional hourly fee-for-service billing arrangement used by most law firms is impractical and excessively burdensome for small-to-mid sized companies, start-ups and individuals, The Mann Law Group pioneered finding ways to provide high-quality, effective legal services to those least able to afford the traditional approach.  We do this by offering our clients a variety of alternatives, such as fixed-fee, success-reward and  contingency-fee billing arrangements, wherein the firm assumes much of the risk in return for a share in a successful outcome.

The Mann Law Group offers a proven method of handling cases quickly and efficiently. The firm does this by combining years of relevant legal experience and expertise in various technologies, with common sense, goal-focused business acumen that avoids many of the procedural side shows that needlessly frustrate settlement, prolong proceedings and increase costs. Coupled with extensive jury trial experience and a record of trial success, the firm’s willingness and eagerness to take cases to trial when appropriate often serves to encourage settlement that might not otherwise be achieved.

If you are an individual, privately held company or other entity that is tired of the financial abuse that often accompanies representation by “big name” law firms, we encourage you to consider our approach.  We will be happy to discuss your matter on a confidential, no charge basis.
