Putting our clients first

One Flat-fee Bill

Business owners desire predictability. To accommodate, we have designed our services so that our clients will know the total cost upfront. This results in fewer invoices and accurate budgeting of legal expenses. Clear, transparent & predictable.

Fully Comprehensive

At Nieves IP we seek to have all attorneys trained in multiple areas of IP. This provides a unique experience where a single IP attorney can join a meeting and identify all IP issues, without requiring additional counsel and additional meetings, and therefore, additional cost.

Nieves IP provides legal guidance and services in the areas of patent litigation and prosecution, global IP portfolio management, patent licensing, counseling on IP strategies, IP due diligence in connection with mergers and acquisitions, trademark prosecution, disputes concerning trademarks and copyrights, IP licensing, and IP legal opinion work (validity, invalidity, clearance, patentability, and more).

So say goodbye to working with different IP attorneys for trademarks, patents, copyrights, and trade secrets, as well as different IP litigators, IP licensing attorneys and those handling IP legal opinion work.

There’s no need to deal with three different law firms and juggle who manages what, when you can talk to your own dedicated attorney instead. We love simplicity and the opportunity to serve our clients deeply in a way that is not just broad, but complete.

Client Centered Recommendations

At Nieves IP, we put the business of our clients first. Our recommendations are inline with client goals and interests, while utilizing many years of experience. In addition, Nieves IP maintains many strong relationships with IP agents in different countries throughout the world. These foreign agents provide outstanding support when seeking IP rights outside of the United States, covering practically every country of the world. This aligns perfectly with the unique global IP portfolio management experience of Nieves IP’s founder, Peter Nieves.

Not Sure Where To Start?

Uncover secrets to protecting your ideas & assets through Intellectual Property

We’ve seen too many people and corporations harmed by having their ideas stolen or by unknowingly performing actions that result in losing rights to protect aspects of their ideas. If that were not bad enough, so many also unknowingly waste vast resources on services that do not align with their business goals. This is due to a lack of understanding IP rights and strategic use.

Nieves IP’s founder, Peter Nieves, created a way to address this issue. Joining forces with A to E Challenges, LLC, a separate corporation that Peter created to address this very lack in the industry, Nieves IP focuses on cultivating a learning environment that supports businesses and individuals at all stages. Those not quite sure where to start with IP or seeking a deeper level of knowledge, are encouraged to explore the training provided by the Protect Your Idea Challenge (TM) and other programs made available by A to E Challenges, LLC.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

We believe that no one should be excluded

Nieves IP is a minority owned business. We are passionate about contributing to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion efforts in a way that transforms the legal community for the benefit of all. Effective transformation should include consideration and action at law school, attorney, and judicial branch. Nieves IP is deeply involved in all three.



No hidden agendas or costs to baffle or unnerve you. We take your well-being into account when we act.
Matthew 7:12



No cryptic language or lack of availability to confound you. All are equally treated with respect.
Romans 12:10



No ego, pride, arrogance, or sarcasm to discourage you.
