The Crown Point Way

Formed With A Focus To Win

We founded Crown Point Advisors in 2010 to provide what was lacking in the market: a prior art search company devoted to litigation and post-grant searches. Working as litigators at the world’s best firms, including Skadden Arps and Sidley Austin, we had hired other search firms and found their results insufficient and too unpredictable to win cases consistently. So Crown Point Advisors was formed with a focus to win cases.
