About Dobbin IP Law

Geoffrey E. Dobbin, Founder

Intellectual property attorney protects inventions and other creations

For 16 years, Geoff Dobbin has assisted independent inventors and other creators of intellectual property with protecting their “babies.” He understands just how invested you can feel after all the hard work that went into your creation.

Although he founded Dobbin IP Law, P.C. when he moved to Utah in 2001, Mr. Dobbin has been practicing intellectual property law and representing creators in need of patents, copyrights and trademarks since 1998. With a degree in physics that gives him a solid scientific background to understand many different technical fields, he is quick on the uptake and easily grasps new concepts and ideas, no matter how complex.

Mr. Dobbin is a solo practitioner with a strong track record as evidenced by his prior work. He especially enjoys working with independent inventors and watching businesses grow and expand.

Legal Assistant

Shaylyn has been Geoff’s legal assistant for over 4 years. She works to keep the office running smoothly and on schedule. She does most of the filing and paper work, as well as whatever else necessary to ensure that Geoff can better serve his clients.  As a part of this process, she has become a notary, the “office photographer” (taking pictures of client samples and prototypes), and a personal assistant.  You will know Shaylyn as the one at the front desk always ready to greet incoming clients.
