Milwaukee-Waukesha among Nation’s Fastest Growing Areas for New Patents

A recent study conducted by George Mason University suggests that the Milwaukee-Waukesha area is ranked fifth in the nation for growth in important new patents. According to Professor Philip Auerswald, the report was requested by the United States Department of Commerce as a way to draw attention to cities that have potential for economic and technological growth amongst private investors and federal granting agencies.

“Our firm has long believed there is great potential for invention and technological development by businesses in Southeastern Wisconsin,” said John Fredrickson, Boyle Fredrickson attorney and shareholder. “It is encouraging that this study shows businesses are capitalizing on that potential and protecting their advancements with patents. For this region to be in the top tier in growth in the country for important patents speaks volumes about our area companies and their commitment to innovation.”
