Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are revolutionizing how the world does business. At Patterson + Sheridan, we’re on the front lines of this innovation, advising and supporting the groundbreaking companies that make it all possible.

Some are already referring to AI as the “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” and its breadth of applications is still being realized. For companies pioneering in this space, safeguarding AI-based inventions and intellectual property is critical.
