      Leyendecker & Lemire has a new third generation website.   It is the best site yet and makes this first generation patent law only site (circa 2003) look skimpy in comparision. SO, while the patent information on this site may be generally useful, although in some cases a bit dated, it can't compare to our current site showcasing our growing firm's expanded services.   For more information about us and our expanded portfolio of legal services, please click the link below and visit our new website at:
