Firm History

McKee, Voorhees & Sease attorneys have been practicing intellectual property law for many years. Talbert Dick, one of Iowa's pioneer patent lawyers, established our firm in 1924. Born in 1898, he was a veteran of WW1, did his post-graduate law study at Harvard University and received a master's degree in Patent Law (L.L.M.) from National University in Washington, D.C. As the legend goes, Talbert Dick decided to start his patent practice in Des Moines because he believed it would become a city of commerce, as it was already a railroad center.

Since 1924, the firm has continued its growth from a solo practice to a group of intellectual property specialists. While many things have changed since Talbert Dick's founding days, one thing has stayed the same. Our firm continues its dedication to both the practice of intellectual property law and its service to clients as a faithful advocate.
