Our Vision & Values

Vision

We strive for a trusted relationship with our customers by providing education and a straightforward, “no surprises” approach to addressing their current and anticipated intellectual property needs.

Values

We value the individual and diversity of opinion and views. We value the courage to speak up and value the discipline to respect a decision once it is made. Our vision is to create a culture and competencies to proactively advise customers with business based intellectual property decisions in a global context. This builds the foundation for long term customer relationships and referrals which will continue to keep the Firm economically sound so as to provide security of income, growth so that the Firm can survive the loss of any employee or customer-no matter what their role, and a future opportunity for the next generation.

Every successful business must do one thing better than its competitors in order to survive. I founded this firm on the principle that an attorney should provide recommendations within the legal landscape for how a customer can protect this competitive advantage rather than waste the customer’s time quoting the law. During my time as a consumer of legal services as both business leader and inventor for 20 years before becoming an attorney, my personal experience was that the attorneys who were best at this type of advice were accessible and part of the business team advising proactive actions, not part of the clean up team merely reacting to problems. This website explains how the flat-fee billing principle, on-site service, and training seminars make The Firm’s attorneys accessible and allow us to earn the opportunity to help you protect your competitive advantage. Our customer surveys document that the firm’s actions are consistent with achieving the principles upon which I founded the firm.  Customers find us accessible, knowledgeable and proactive. Mission Accomplished.

Dear Customers, Vendors, and Friends of Edwin A. Sisson, Attorney at Law, LLC,

We are preparing for SEMA 360 which is the virtual version of the SEMA show and I want to provide a positive update for the firm as we enter the seventh month of the COVID-19 pandemic in the US.

The Firm continuously monitors the spread of COVID-19 in our area, and we continue to refine our policies and procedures.

Our colleagues around the world and our US customers with international operations have continued to provide us with on-the-ground status reports, and we are happy to see that many countries have turned a corner and effectively controlled the spread of COVID-19.

As I mentioned in March, preparedness for unexpected situations is integral to the Firm’s culture. We had prepared for this remote work scenario long ago. As a result, the Firm’s employees seamlessly transitioned to working from home in mid-March. Currently, the Firm’s employees are still largely working from home. This has not affected our ability to provide excellent service to each of our customers. Your access to the Firm’s employees remains the same.

While we have resumed some limited travel, customer visits to our office, and site visits, the Firm’s policies remain modified:

Visits to the Firm’s office have resumed, but are limited and are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Visitors to the Firm’s office must wear a mask. The Firm has disposable masks available. If you are not able to wear a mask for any reason, please let us know in advance of your visit.

Visitors to the Firm’s office will have their temperatures taken upon arrival.

Travel outside the United States is suspended until further notice. Many countries are limiting or banning travelers from the United States. Once travel from the United States becomes widely permitted again, the Firm will evaluate international travel on a case-by-case basis; we expect that travel outside the United States will be limited well into 2021.

Travel inside the United States remains limited.

Local customer visits are still being evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and still occur less frequently than in the past.

Video conferencing or conference calls are still being used in lieu of in-person meetings whenever possible.

As many of you know, Edwin A. Sisson, Attorney at Law prides itself on its attorneys’ willingness to meet with customers at their place of business. We do not take the decision to limit customer visits lightly, but we feel it is necessary to continue this practice at this time.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to any Firm employee for clarification on these temporary policies.

Ed Sisson, Founder and Principal Attorney
