The world’s first nuclear to coal power plant conversion. Multiple individual celebrities who polished their image to successfully engage the media.

From serving as advisors to the Urgent Care Association of America to actually creating America’s Best Urgent Care, our firm knows the health care industry. Our relations and counsel to those operating in the Senior Care and Home Health Care segments are equally matched by our understanding of billing and customer service that is so critical to the future of health care.
Food and Beverage
From envisioning and creating the name for a gourmet banana to helping make a fresh squeezed Florida juice a high-level household favorite, our company works to make “unique” the normal. We use techniques that drive a desire to consume. Or, help companies become so unique they can battle major competitors in their industry – and win!
When it comes to pet products, we have worked with small companies to international leaders in the pet care, vet, and product industries. We have also helped to maintain and change attitudes towards pet care and competitive events for pets that have historical ties to saving lives. Clients include some of the most recognizable names in the industry
Technology & Manufacturing
Technology is constantly changing. To meet the challenge of change, technology companies turn to our experts for proven communication techniques. We assist in developing names that allow companies to describe technologies that sometimes simply have no name – just a process. And we are adept at taking a complex process down to a down to a description that is universally accepted to those who developed the process as well as those who need the technology. Our description of through-board wiring for the printed wiring board (circuit board) allowed one client to describe their process so thoroughly, competitors were unable to compete in the same stacked manufacturing process!
We have represented many different technology companies. Those companies include IT companies, 5-G, proprietary computer systems, peer-to-peer networking companies, financial services technology companies, medical technology companies, printed wiring board companies; tool and die manufacturing, and much more.
Our manufacturing clients have built aviation systems, boats, yachts, home building products, durable medical goods, pet products, health and beauty products, commercial construction materials, and DoD testing and verification products for land, sea, and air.
The technology and manufacturing companies we have worked with help to make life more convenient, easier and safer.
