Meet the Founder

Our Philosophy

“People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.”
                                                                                                                          George Bernard Shaw

Old Law is a time-honored institution for those who like institutions. Corporate leaders who seek change retain Bauz IP Law. Founded as an alternative IP law firm, we replaced quota driven rank and file billing teams with seasoned professionals armed with advanced technology and analytics. We eliminate redundancy and overhead by working closely with reputable U.S. outside vendors like Inventus, routinely retained by Fortune 500 companies.  After disengaging an AmLaw 100 firm, the CFO of a publicly traded company praised Bauz IP Law for reduced legal costs, comprehendible billing and favorable results. Formerly, the founder spent twenty-five years in Big Law global platforms, including serving on Management Committees.

Welcome to Bauz IP Law … when it matters.
