research these issues because they are busy trying to create or run a small

Who are we?
Nolte Intellectual Property Law
Group is a mid-sized firm in Houston, Texas focusing exclusively on protecting small
business and entrepreneurial intellectual property through patents, trademarks,
and copyrights. However, our focus
doesn’t stop with protecting intellectual property, as we believe that monetizing
intellectual property is an equally important and often overlooked aspect of
many small businesses. Therefore, we
work with our clients to license their technology on a royalty basis to
generate a revenue stream and increase company valuation through solid
intellectual property that subsequently supports a higher company sale price.
We’ve developed these protection and monetization strategies through 20+
years of experience in both law and small business. For example, our firm’s founding partner is a
successful entrepreneur having started, operated, and sold multiple
multimillion-dollar small businesses. So with Nolte
IP you’re getting a unique perspective of experienced small business
professionals to help you with your small business issues. Further, there are a few aspects of
intellectual property you can do in-house (even do yourself) and we’re happy to
guide you in these areas help reduce your costs, however, there are some aspects
of intellectual property where it is critical that you have professional help.
We think we can help you sort out which is which.
So regardless of which aspects of
intellectual property you want to better understand, this site is a portal to
useful information for you. Please feel free to explore it and use the
