Our attorneys take the initiative to gain a deep understanding of the complex technical concepts and go-to-market initiatives of our clients to build a patent portfolio that effectively competes in a global setting.
At G&G we take a holistic view in the way we provide services to our clients. Our philosophy comes from a culmination of our founding members’ many years of experience in mergers and acquisitions, general litigation, and patent prosecution.
G&G’s culture drives us to immerse ourselves in our clients’ businesses and technologies to provide advice that is both practical and forward looking. We understand that each client’s circumstances can differ and therefore we never assume that a single portfolio strategy works the same for all clients.
We seek to earn our clients’ trust through consistently achieving results and by maintaining the same high quality output, day after day and year after year.
Since the firm’s inception, we have focused on providing exceptional service to our clients based on a continual commitment to process improvement. The result has been loyal, long-term client relationships and a growing business.

Inventors at an academic institution frequently conceive of complex inventions, which require an IP firm with a strong technical and legal foundation. G&G has been such a firm. But perhaps more important than technical and legal competence is the ability to gain inventors' trust. G&G’s attorneys have always connected well with university inventors and have consistently delivered a quality work product.

Guntin & Gust Ranked in Top 5 of IP firms nationally for Tech Centers 2400 & 2600
With high tech companies facing aggressive competition in the market, including time to market challenges, comprehensive protection of a client’s intellectual property is imperative.
Guntin & Gust is proud to be recognized by Juristat in their annual report ranking performance of the top 100 Patent Law Firms in the United States.
According to their 2019 Report, G&G ranks in the top 5 for the following Tech Centers:
Technology Center 2400 – provides examination for patent applications including Computer Networks, Multiplex, Cable and Cryptography/Security

Juristat requires that firms meet a volume threshold (minimum of 100 applications disposed in a tech center within the 12 months being reviewed) to be included in the report. They then evaluate each IP firm’s performance based on three key metrics:
- Number of applications filed
- Allowance rate
- Average number of office actions before allowance
