About Aurora North

We are a legal specialist, with deep in-house roots and understanding. That understanding means we know how critical integration is to successful IT initiatives. So we design and deliver software and services in ways that truly connect technology, data and process.

It also means we build interfaces and workflows specifically tuned to lawyers, clients and diverse staff roles — each providing necessary context and intuitive experience for those audiences.

We are focused on partnering in ways that sincerely prioritize your success. So we execute projects at a scale and pace that’s best suited to your specific environment, priorities, culture, and timelines — not ours.

Innovative IP Software

We elevate your IP prosecution practice to new levels

Your firm and IP practice are facing new challenges and new pressures. We offer game-changing IP prosecution software, built specifically for IP practitioners and staff. PracticeLink centralizes, integrates and automates patent and trademark prosecution, and there’s nothing else like it available.

We transform the paper-based world and disconnected internal applications into a connected, digital environment for efficient IP prosecution. So instead of separate applications and information (docketing, DMS, email, financial data, and more), your lawyers and staff have one place to work — and it’s one they love.

We help firms evolve in practice — not only with software, but also with expert consulting and advice. We can provide you with new insight into your IP prosecution practice in just two weeks, and meaningfully enhance execution in just four months. Let’s connect and talk about the future of your IP practice, today.

Intapp Professional Services & Enhanced Support

We implement everything Intapp, intelligently

We are the largest, most experienced Intapp services provider, certified to work across their entire product portfolio. Our seasoned team, deep experience and proven methodology bring tremendous benefit to our clients, globally.

We work to achieve success for you and build a long term relationship. You’ve already made a big investment in the promise of new software. We’re the team that will enable you to achieve real ROI in practice.

We don’t need to re-invent the wheel from scratch for you, we have a warehouse of wheels built over the past 15 years. We understand your existing IT infrastructure, applications and data — and how those tie together with the operational workings of your firm. Complexity and challenge don’t scare us, just the opposite.

Customer Spotlight


I highly recommend Aurora North as an Intapp services partner. We have now worked on numerous projects with different people across the Aurora North team, and have always had a great experience.

Aurora North is always willing to consider different approaches. They will change or modify designs if it makes sense. And, they effectively advocate for us and our interests with Intapp.

Robert Funk
Financial Systems Manager


I would say that the distinguishing thing about working with Aurora North is that they simply care, and they care at a very fundamental level about the success of their clients.

They go far beyond what we ask of them and offer themselves to us as true and trusted strategic advisers. And in several respects they are helping us chart the evolution of this firm, providing immense insight and value.

Gillian Power
Chief Information Officer

Lewis Roca

We valued their pragmatic analysis of our patent and trademark prosecution processes. Improving efficiencies by upgrading our docketing procedures and enhancing the value we deliver to clients were top priorities for our IP practice, and Aurora North provided us with a step-by-step guide to achieving those objectives.

By mapping our requirements to specific modules within the product, we gained a clear idea of which parts of PracticeLink to implement first for maximum impact.

Andrew Johnson
Chief Information Officer


We were impressed with their methodology and knowledge of what it takes to run an IP prosecution team as efficiently as possible while maintaining accuracy and attention to detail.

Michael H. Jacobs
co-chair, Patent Prosecution Group


I pretty much say Aurora North is a no-brainer if you're an IP firm. They’re easy to work with. They have the context and understanding to translate my requirements and needs into effective solutions. I can talk about a business situation and they get it.

They’ve been very flexible and have worked with me in any way needed. And, importantly, they’re not shy about flagging when what we thought we wanted to do in theory would actually be a mistake in practice. I really appreciate that.

Kimberly Giertz
Chief Information Officer


Aurora North has been an invaluable partner in innovation, working with our team over the years to develop our internal portal for the IP prosecution team and automate workflows that enable our team to respond quickly to both our clients and to the USPTO.

By adopting PracticeLink, we’re enhancing the user experience for IP lawyers and staff, making it even easier for them to collaborate with clients, foreign associates and the patent and trademark office — and to deliver client service in the most efficient way possible.

Matt Collins
Director of IP Services

Time is of the essence in IP prosecution.

Automating workflows using PracticeLink from Aurora North has played a critical role in enabling us to file more than 2,500 US patent applications in the last few years.

Ed Macnamara
Chief Technology Officer


Throughout the assessment, we felt confident that the Aurora North team truly understood our challenges as an IP practice. They made pragmatic recommendations we could implement in stages, over time, and the business impact of following their guidance has been tremendous.
