project cip supports some of the most innovative companies in Utah by providing proven patent, trademark, and intellectual property business strategies to successfully navigate today's competitive landscapes.

the firm.

project cip is an intellectual property law firm directed by logan, Utah attorney preston p. frischknecht. 


i've seen intellectual property (ip) strategies empower businesses.  at the same time, i understand that ip tools are only one part of the business toolkit and that limited resources need to go to the highest priorities. so, my goals are to:

  • listen and learn about your business;

  • share ip strategy with you;

  • filter out the unnecessary; and

  • recommend and execute the best options for creating real market value for your business.


it can be difficult to know the skill of a lawyer in a particular area of law. people often pay the price (literally and figuratively!) for substandard legal work when they deploy a generalist where a specialist is required. referring to ip, the american intellectual property law association (aipla) states:

it is important that a great degree of skill be exercised. . . . by relying on a specialist in the field who has good standing and recognized ability in his profession, the inventor or artist can be assured that the intellectual property will be adequately protected. 

as an attorney specifically registered with the united states patent & trademark office (uspto), i am an intellectual property specialist.  i know the common pitfalls and uncommon strategies that others may miss.


i've helped many individuals, start-ups, and large, multi-million dollar companies with their ip needs, both in the u.s. and internationally, to:

  • apply for and acquire trademarks, patents, and copyrights;

  • conduct important business transactions;

  • carry out infringement litigation; and

  • work with government agents in administrative proceedings.

cache valley and logan, utah-area businesses i've assisted are formally recognized as among the top ip developers in the state of utah. i also understand that in some cases, applying experience actually means guiding businesses to initiatives other than ip.    


businesses and entrepreneurs put resources where they count. if you are looking to hire a big law firm with lots of attorneys and glitter and overhead, i'm not for you.  i offer value by providing efficient and effective strategies.  for large projects, i achieve scaleability and manpower as needed through a carefully chosen network of local, regional, national, and global attorneys.

that is the project cip difference.
