About Us

How We Judge Success

There are many ways to judge success; We look to our mission statement below to guide us in our day-to-day operations.

Budgets are always tight for our clients as it seems we are all expected to do more with less these days. That is why we place such a high level of importance on teamwork to maximize the return on investment of every dollar our clients entrust us with.


Many of the SIPI team members come from large OEM intellectual property teams. We not only understand the challenges, but we have likely experienced similar ones ourselves.

We are only successful when our clients are successful.

Our History

We are a group of subject matter experts, lawyers, and technical strategists highly experienced in patent analysis, claim chart generation or test bench development.

 Many of our experts participated in the development of the standards we cover. With experience at leading technology companies such as Blackberry, Qualcomm, AMD, and Intel, our team has the experience to support your efforts in the pursuit of maximizing the potential of your SEP portfolio.

Our internal and external lab partners allow us to have world-class testing capabilities right out of the gate. Our Silicon Valley lab team works closely with Anritsu and Rohde and Schwarz, leading providers of state-of-the-art test equipment. Both companies stock equipment locally as well as provide engineering support here in Silicon Valley. Their unprecedented level of support allows us to react quickly to our clients' continually expanding testing needs.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a safe and supportive working environment for our team members while providing every client with cost-effective and innovative solutions to transparency of use.

Our Approach

We approach each and every project as if we are a part of your in-house team. This means we will always look for the most cost effective solution that will maximize the return on investment for your entire IP team. All our projects are done in phased approaches with constant communication and direction from our clients.

Bruce Hollibaugh

I have had the good fortune to work with so many great technology companies over the years. I have been honored to work with some of the most talented and well respected IP thought leaders in our industry. Being nominated by my peers and accepted as an iam 300 Top IP Strategist was humbling. I have listed a few of the companies I have worked with throughout my career.

I first worked with Bruce Hollibaugh over 15 years ago. He and his team were able to take very challenging projects and deliver success for us multiple times. He and his team were trusted to work on the most sensitive projects and always found a way to get us the answers we needed. His team of engineers are all patent-centric which can be very helpful when generating powerful claim charts. I would not hesitate to trust Bruce and his team again.

I met Bruce Hollibaugh 15+ years ago when we were rapidly expanding our licensing program at Broadcom. He and his team reacted quickly to our evidence of use (EOU) needs. These were complex problems that needed to be answered as quickly as possible. He always embraced the hardest projects. I have relied on Bruce and his team over the years and hope to continue to do so for many more.
