At Tydings, we understand that technology companies have legal needs that are as unique as their technologies.  We applaud their entrepreneurial spirit to create these exciting innovations and take pleasure in helping them fully realize the business potential of their products and services.

Our clients include entrepreneurs, start-ups, established businesses, government contractors, and multinational corporations.  We help them preserve, protect, and commercialize the technologies and creative work behind their products and services.  We work with our clients to develop comprehensive intellectual property strategies and partner with them to advance their business development plans.
