About Us


Serve the Legal Sector by providing various Services

Siamak Riahi founded Riahi & Associates in the US in 2012. The goal of the company was to serve the legal sector by providing various services such as patentability searches, validity searches, landscape, and often providing IP Market Research to the startups.

Around 2017, Riahi & Associates started working with multiple startups and it was immediately brought to its attention that the startup ecosystem in North America needs training and education on IP concepts. They needed something more than regular patent search, they needed to get access to IP analysis and strategize their IP assets based on those analyses and assessments.
