Hunter Clark PLLC originated in 2010 with the objective of helping technology clients better capture, protect and leverage their intellectual property (IP) and achieve their business goals.


Our mission is to help technologically-innovative clients capture and leverage their intellectual genius to achieve their business goals and to support the American economy. To do this, we adapt our communications and advice to provide cost-effective legal counsel tailored to each client’s needs.


Our vision is to be a small law firm that is preferred over large law firms by clients and employees alike.

The firm’s client reach has expanded from coast to coast, including, among others, Fortune 500 companies Qualcomm and American Power Conversion ( a subsidiary of Schneider Electric), several additional Schneider Electric subsidiaries in the U.S., and Columbia University. Our primary areas of technology expertise include a diverse range of technologically-innovative industries, and our own desire to leverage technology has led us to implement advanced operating processes ( docketing, electronic billing, online access to open issues, online status of office actions, patent audit procedures) that can help jump-start an IP program at entrepreneurial and small companies, and quickly and easily integrate with existing mid-cap and large-cap IP infrastructures.

The co-founders, Shane Hunter and TJ Clark, changed the way that an intellectual property firm operates. Hunter Clark serves clients better by empowering highly technically skilled employees that share the firm’s core values and strategically aligning them with  clients that value their IP assets as an integral part of their business strategy.

All our employees are passionate about enabling and protecting our clients’ innovations. Our team of patent attorneys, many with advanced technical degrees, left established careers at large law firms or technology companies to join Hunter Clark based on working relationships with the founders, and a desire to achieve the firm’s vision.
