I am thrilled to join Stommes Patil and have been very impressed by its virtual model that promotes cost-efficiencies and enables delivery of high-quality legal services to diverse clients at nearly half of AmLaw 100 rates. I was especially attracted to the firms desire to strengthen its Silicon Valley presence and offer a robust platform for growing the IP practice, Mr. Hindman commented.

Matt joins Stommes Patil as part of our strategic expansion in the Silicon Valley and enhances our ability to represent high-tech companies in IP matters. Matt is dedicated to achieving long-term success for his clients through strategic implementation of their IP assets, said Julia L. Stommes, co-managing partner of Stommes Patil.

Mr. Hindman represents companies at all stages of development, including startup and emerging companies, pre-IPO companies and large public corporations.
