Our History


TechPats was founded in 1998 as Telecom Partners Limited and in 2002 became Technology, Patents & Licensing, Inc. (TPL). It operated as TPL until the company rebranded as TechPats in 2014. Throughout this time, TechPats has maintained our reputation as one of the premier patent monetization experts and IP strategists, generating 100’s of millions of dollars in revenue for our clients by successfully working with operating companies and law firms on licensing, litigation and acquisition efforts.

In 2015, TechPats acquired Global Intellectual Strategies of Ottawa, Canada, growing the company’s in-house reverse engineering/testing services and technical acumen.

Today, we continue to serve our global list of notable clients with an extensive range of services from our offices in Philadelphia, Ottawa, San Francisco, Tokyo, and Taipei.
