Protect Your Ideas and Your Business.

In 2013, Perkins Olson, a firm specializing in business law, acquired Bohan Mathers & Associates, regarded as one of the leading intellectual property law firms in northern New England. The integrated team has great depth and experience, from intellectual property work, to a broad range of corporate and business law services.

Perkins Olson President Dave Perkins noted, “We enjoyed a business relationship with Bohan Mathers over several years, working together with entrepreneurs to protect their intellectual property. Combined, we are very efficient at serving clients needing IP work, matched with a broad range of corporate and business law services. Our broad based practice has a keen focus on technology and intellectual property based businesses.” Bohan Mathers principal, Patricia Mathers, notes, “We complement each other professionally. Our strength is in providing diversified practices, collective resources and experience, offering cost effective solutions to our clients.”

Thomas Bohan opened the intellectual property firm, Thomas Bohan & Associates, in 1982. Patricia Mathers took over the practice in 2002, renaming the company Bohan Mathers & Associates. Patricia brings a strong background in engineering and technical expertise to the firm’s patent work. She is fluent in German, which accounts for the firm’s substantial German client base. Through 2013, Bohan Mathers has obtained over 250 patents for clients, worldwide.

Perkins Olson, PA, and Bohan Mathers & Associates have consolidated offices at 32 Pleasant Street, downtown Portland, Maine.
