Who We Are.

We specialize in working with early stage life science, medical​ device, digital health, and software companies to develop valuable patent portfolios through highly tailored, comprehensive strategies. We scale with our clients’ needs and deeply understand the nuances of technology and patent strategy, and how to tie them effectively to business objectives.​ We are responsive, accessible and we move at the speed of startup.​



Our patent strategy specialists will work alongside your engineers, scientists, and executive team to effectively identify inventions, understand the competitive landscape, and translate technical and business objectives into your patent portfolio. With Aurora Consulting, you will have an embedded, business-savvy patent portfolio strategy expert, while avoiding the cost and hassle of a full time employee.​

We understand that each company will have unique patent portfolio needs based on their technology, competitive landscape, position along the financing timeline, and exit strategy. We offer several levels of services that cover both US and foreign patents, depending on your needs and the size of your portfolio.​


Our Team.

We are engineers and scientists first. With multiple advanced engineering and science degrees and decades of industry experience, technology is in our blood.​

Francis Macnamara, former VP Advanced Technology at Hansen Medical, Inc.​​

The Aurora group managed our large patent portfolio at Hansen Medical for 4 years. We used them instead of hiring full time internal patent counsel and I would highly recommend them for this approach. During that time, Kristen and Ashley learned most of our critical technologies, as if they were full time Hansen employees.​​

Jeffery Bleich, CEO and Founder at Pulson, Inc. ​​

Aurora Consulting has provided our company with an outstanding proactive and highly strategic approach to IP execution and portfolio management.  What is particularly impressive is how each member of the team has efficiently and effectively contributed to managing and growing an outstanding foundational patent portfolio on our behalf.​

Steve Axelrod, President and CEO at G-Tech Medical, Inc.​​

These are smart, experienced people, and they are a pleasure to work with. I’m very confident that the patents we have filed since engaging with Aurora will be successful and I’m also confident that we are building a portfolio that is well thought out to make optimal use of our inventive ideas in protecting our business.​​

​Candice Capps-Tate, Accessories Designer​​

Ashley and the team at Aurora Consulting are a force to be reckoned with.  Ashley is single-handedly the reason we can say “patent-pending” on our products, while her dedicated staff is diligent and prompt.  With us having zero legal patent experience, Ashley has been delightfully patient in guiding us through the process and helping us stay on schedule.​
