The IP Lawyers: the premier portal to recommended Intellectual Property lawyers, practice area news and legal insights:

By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish.

We assist directors, in-house counsel, law firms and individuals by providing a concise and up-to-date guide to leading IP litigation, patent, trademark and copyright lawyers in the field. Our research covers all 50 states, with featured attorneys being selected based on the results of peer nominations, in-depth research, awards and client feedback. Our selection process is independent and it is not possible to request entry into the guide.
