In order to determine where you are going, you must have a clear understanding of where you have been. 

Founded in 2002 by four intellectual property attorneys looking to create a new services model not being offered by today’s larger firms, The Eclipse Group has cultivated an environment in which we can achieve our clients’ goals effectively and efficiently by offering personalized services and creative solutions tailored to meet each client’s particular business needs.

In August of 2006, the firm merged with O’Connor Christensen & McLaughlin, a group of highly experienced intellectual property litigators with a nationwide reputation for exceptional trial and appellate representation. And in May of 2012, the firm merged with the San Diego civil and general business litigation team of Bacalski Ottoson & DubĂ©, creating the groundwork for the breadth of knowledge, skill, and creativity we offer today.  

As of present, the firm has grown to over twenty-five attorneys, the majority of whom have over ten years experience dating back to their previous law firms and former professional roles.  Since the firm's inception, we have worked to attract and retain additional high caliber, results-oriented attorneys and staff in order to ensure our ability to serve our clients professionally, responsively and effectively in a variety of professional and technical disciplines.

To better serve our growing client base, we have opened offices in several key industry and innovation hubs within the United States, including Chicago, Illinois; Research Triangle Park, North Carolina; San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles, California.  We also offer our clients additional access points to other centers of global innovation through our strategic alliances with leading law firms throughout the world.
