The IAM Patent 1000 has named Nicholson De Vos Webster & Elliott as a recommended patent prosecution firm for California:

Silicon Valley has a new player in town – Nicholson De Vos Webster & Elliott. The prosecution, portfolio management and post-grant focused shop was established by several experienced partners in March 2015, and has quickly made its name as a thoroughly modern service provider. The firm enjoys great synergy with start-ups and its adoption of cloud computing infrastructures is particularly resonant among those just starting out in life. The set has no problem serving mid-sized and very large companies conducting business in the IT sphere, too. Founding partner Daniel De Vos “makes sure to personally connect with examiners, which usually results in a quicker allowance of the patent.” His collaborative approach is also appreciated: “The drafting process they put in place is very interactive and Dan will help to crystallise your ideas and invoke a process of thought that actually improves them from a technical perspective. Things work their way through the patent office in a straightforward manner, without too many office actions.” He and fellow founder David Nicholson are superb contentious support options, in addition to being top prosecutors.
