At Xsensus, we do things differently. Since our founding in 2018, we have taken the traditional IP Law Firm framework and turned it upside down. We focus on relationships, bright minds and the latest technology to deliver innovative and creative solutions to our clients.
This difference has allowed us to once again rank as one of the fastest growing firms in the top 100 U.S. patent firms, and that’s just the beginning.
“We are fortunate to have such positive growth in the current climate. Our clients are amazing, and we look forward to building on our relationships, which are rooted in service excellence, trust, teamwork, and open communication. We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to the Xsensus team for pulling together and making 2020 a stellar year in terms of growth.” – Andrew Harry, Xsensus Founding Partner & Patent Attorney
Celebrating the Firm’s Success and Growth
Although 2020 was a difficult year for many, Xsensus found a way to persevere. Xsensus is honored to rank among the top 100 patent firms of 2020. At 39%, we have the highest growth rate in terms of patents granted among all law firms, placing us in the highest growth rate of patents granted for the second year in the row.
In addition, we grew our team with three incredibly talented attorneys skilled in various science, academic and industry fields, allowing us to further expand into a full-service IP boutique with significant growth in areas of third-party matters, design patents and trademarks.
“Xsensus provided the total package for me and my practice – the opportunity to work with sophisticated clients on cutting-edge technologies, the offer of excellent work-life balance in a collegial, down-to-earth atmosphere with an overall great group of colleagues, and the ability to continue to grow my practice with the full support of a great team of wildly successful and highly respected experts in the patent field. In joining Xsensus I felt that my significant experience with design patents would offer a boost to the full-service capabilities of the firm, and my patent prosecution/counseling experience and clients fit in perfectly with their existing client base and deepened their already deep bench of experienced practitioners. In so many ways the sky is the limit here at Xsensus and I am excited to help build upon Xsensus’ phenomenal trajectory of growth and success.” – Patrick Miller, Patent Attorney
As we continue to grow as a firm, we attribute much of our success to our client and relationship-focused approach. Even during a time of social distancing, our firm quickly adapted to stay digitally connected with our clients.
At Xsensus, we dedicate our resources to develop and maintain strong client relationships, manage direct dialogues with the USPTO and continually invest in our internal team and our community. We take the time to understand our client’s needs and issues, and then work closely with them to provide services and creative solutions to their challenges.
“We make it a point to personally know all of the examiners of our clients. This human connection, and mutual respect that develops from repeated interactions, allows for more efficient negotiations on new applications.” – Says Brad Lytle, Xsensus Founding Partner & Patent Attorney

Not Your Typical Law Firm:
Xsensus recognized that in order to provide creative and innovative solutions to clients, the conventional law firm model would not work. The firm’s success continues to rely on its founding ethos: create a collaborative teamwork climate, invest in technology-driven processes and be motivated by results.
“I really appreciate that Xsensus offers flexible vacation time and an excellent work from home policy for all employees. Their philosophy and approach allows me to do what I love professionally with appreciative clients and awesome colleagues, while being there for my child. Xsensus is a highly supportive environment in all aspects.” – Susan Morse, Attorney
