Mason Boswell was born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1976. Identified early as a strong student, he was moved into an experimental public gifted education program called Creative Learning in a Unique Environment (CLUE), which spurred his interest in science and learning. Boswell moved to South Carolina in 1988, where he attended Irmo Middle School. In 1989, he carried the school's science team to victory in the National Science Olympiad in Boulder, CO, winning in three events. He then attended Irmo/Dutch Fork High School for two years and in 1993 entered college at the age of 16 as one of 30 students selected for the University of Southern California's Resident Honors Program. In 1994, he was selected as one of two National Merit Scholars from South Carolina.
After completing his Bachelor's Degree, Mason Boswell returned to South Carolina in 1997 and completed his Master's Degree eight months later at the University of South Carolina. Then 21, he moved to Seattle to work for Microsoft as a software design engineer. In 2001, Boswell decided to apply his technical skills in new ways and began attending law school at night while working at Microsoft full-time in the day. He graduated in 2004 in the top 20% of his law school class, and began working as a patent attorney for Perkins Coie, at the time the largest law firm in the Pacific Northwest. Having an untapped entrepreneurial spirit and wanting to offer software patent clients unparalleled service, Mason Boswell founded Boswell IP Law in 2008. Boswell and his family reside in Seattle.

We offer advice regarding intellectual property law, how to patent an idea, software patent infringement, and related disciplines focusing on protecting your ideas.
Whether you are seeking protection for the first core idea of your business or adding to an existing portfolio, we tailor our approach to fit your needs and business goals.
Patent law is complex, so we work hard to make the process easy and explain the law in a way that gives you the information that you need to make important decisions.
Our relationships with our clients are very important to us. If you are ever dissatisfied for any reason, we encourage you to discuss it with us and we will make it right.
Although we strive to do a great job, we believe that there is always room for improvement and we partner with our clients to actively seek ways to make our services better.
We prefer to perform our services for fixed (rather than hourly) fees so that the focus is on client interaction and high quality work rather than the clock.
Fixed fees allow you to budget effectively for protecting your ideas and to contact us whenever you have questions.
We believe that learning about your idea is best performed in person, so we prefer to travel to you to learn about your invention.
We serve clients all over the United States, and do not charge for travel costs.
