While a flower is budding, it is protected by a whorl of sepals that enclose the flower as it emerges and provide stability as it opens. This structure is the calyx. Like a calyx, we see our role as helping to ensure that seed-stage and early-stage companies have the protection and support they need to come into full bloom.
Founded in 2016, we were the first patent law boutique in California to focus on the cannabis industry, and we were among the first patent professionals anywhere to work on psychedelics. As practitioners, our goal is to be the foremost experts and most sought-out advocates on cannabis and psychedelics related patent and IP issues.
