To our existing and former clients, suppliers, vendors, and other contacts —

As of Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2020, Northwind IP Law has discontinued its law practice. On Wednesday Sept. 30, 2020, I began working for Davis & Kuelthau, s.c. (“D|K”).

D|K is an innovative business law firm that provides a wide array of legal services, including but not limited to patent law, trademark law, and all other aspects of intellectual property law. Attorney Tom Connelly also joined D|K as of that same day. D|K will take over the downtown Appleton office space currently occupied by Northwind at that time as well.

From Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2020 onward, our contact information is:

If you are a current or former client and have not yet received a notice from us – we plan to be in contact with you in the near future so we can arrange to have your legal file(s) transferred to D|K, or to another firm of your choice, or returned to you, according to your wishes. If you have thoughts along these lines you need not wait to hear from us. Feel free to reach out and tell us what your wishes are with regard to such file(s). If you have any overdue or outstanding invoices for services we rendered to you, please arrange to make prompt payment. Northwind will continue to monitor and receive such payments.

If you are a current or former supplier and have not yet heard from us – please contact us if you have any questions about whether your goods or services will be needed after October 2020. If you have provided any goods/services to Northwind and have not yet invoiced us, please send us your final invoice by the end of this month.

If you are part of a larger organization – please forward this notice to others who may be interested.

It has been a privilege to work with you. I hope to continue a working relationship with as many of you as possible as I transition to D|K.

I was very grateful to obtain my two patents locally. The staff was always accommodating and helpful. Though I never was able to license my product, they were always willing to step in and help with negotiations.

I’ve been working with Stephen the past few years on a couple of patents at the core of our business, dodles. I have really appreciated Stephen’s thoroughness in working through the complexities of our subject matter and delivering a well-thought-out patent. Stephen has alse remained very current with the approaching issues of our patents and ensuring we are paying close attention to next steps and deadlines, which is really helpful for a startup like ours, and he shows a lot of care for the success of the patent.
