Adam Philipp

Founding Member / Patent Attorney, AEON Law



AEON Law’s Founder, Adam Philipp, is a strategic advisor who focuses on innovative solutions for creators, entrepreneurs, and C-suite executives.

Adam advises clients on everything from intellectual property creation and enforcement to tools for business growth in technologies including computer science, electrical devices, consumer products, artificial intelligence, blockchain, cryptography, and cybersecurity.

Interest in the Intersection Between Tech and the Law

Fascinated with the intersection between technology and the law, Adam understands that issues like privacy, identity, and authenticity are magnified in the digital realm.

Blockchain is a hot topic today. But many don’t know that back in the 1990s the predecessor of blockchain was beginning to be used to authenticate transactions. Adam knows about it because he was there. In those days, he was one of only a handful of lawyers at the forefront of cryptographic policy discussions. Today, as many law firms struggle to grasp developments in crypto and blockchain, Adam continues to use his longstanding expertise to assist clients in developing, using, and protecting new and resourceful ways to use technology to solve problems.

Focus on Educating Clients

Adam believes all of his clients deserve to understand how their IP tools will work for them; and AEON Law’s business model is carefully designed with this in mind. The firm’s flat fees and consultation process meet this goal by providing an informative approach with predictable budgets.

Adam also enjoys helping large and established clients navigate the sometimes-troublesome waters that every major company inevitably faces and avoid conflict. He is personally and professionally invested in the success of his clients, sitting on the boards of several client companies.

Adam employs his creativity and bent toward education in his free time as well, advising competitors and judging business plan competitions with local universities as well as pursuing an avid avocation in photography.

“Common Sense, Candid, Quirky, and Creative”

Adam describes his style as “common sense, candid, quirky, and creative.” For example, he once was asked to provide a presentation on networking. Instead of using a boilerplate PowerPoint presentation, Adam hired a comic-book artist to illustrate slides for a presentation he called “Networking: The RPG (or, Everything I Need to Know About Networking I Learned Playing D&D).”

Adam says he and his team embrace the geeky side of IP law. If you come to AEON’s office for an in-person consultation, you might notice artwork the firm specially commissioned from local artists to encourage a collaborative space. You also might see a conference room named “Gondor” and the copier “Sauron,” (you have been warned) after locations and characters in Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings.”

With his experience, creativity, and technical know-how, Adam is the kind of business-savvy geek you want to guide your company through complicated matters.

About AEON Law


Origin Story

People often ask why we are named “AEON”. Is it because of ÆON FLUX the cool 1980s MTV animated series? No, but it is an excellent show. Instead, our origins go back a few thousand years to Plato’s Republic and his allegory of the cave.

In that story, a group of prisoners is chained in a cave and looking at the cave wall. Shadows are cast on the wall from the light of a fire. But because the prisoners can only see the shadows, they think the shadows are reality; black and white, with two dimensions. The prisoners are unaware that the figures and objects that are casting the shadows – which the prisoners can’t see – are the reality.

One day a prisoner escapes from the cave and sees the outside world with colors and shapes. At first, all he can see are the shadows they cast, but eventually, he realizes that the shapes themselves are more real than the shadows they cast. Plato says that we exist in our own cave of perception, and think that the objects we see are real. But Plato says that our everyday objects are merely shadows of their essential forms (Platonic Ideals). These Platonic Ideals exist in the eternal world of ideas “behind” the perceived world that is known as ÆON.

I’m looking for an IP attorney. What does Plato have to do with patents?

Our firm was created to use our decades of experience to help clients grow their businesses and enforce their rights in their inventions and brands. AEON Law attorneys have experience at boutique and large law firms, a number of us have managed our own firms, and we have led in-house legal teams building valuable intellectual property portfolios. In addition, our attorneys are artists and inventors who have seen the intellectual property protection process from the other side of the table.

Protecting a company’s intellectual property can be unpredictable and expensive. Whether we are litigating against an infringer or helping register your IP rights in the U.S. and around the world, we focus on our clients’ end goals. We help keep every process efficient and predictable for our clients with:

  • Project-based flat fees for most types of work;
  • Regular communication explaining the pros and cons of all options;
  • Our IP coordinator who centrally oversees all filing; and
  • Our global network of IP attorneys.

As our name indicates, AEON Law attorneys help our clients see the complete picture – outside the cave – and use our creativity and thoughtfulness to protect your ideas.
