Loeb & Loeb offers the full spectrum of legal services for the development, acquisition, commercialization, protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights worldwide.

We partner with clients across a diverse range of industries — from entertainment, media and advertising to financial services, consumer products and life sciences — to address their most critical IP needs. Whether you’re a Fortune 500 company or an emerging growth enterprise, an A-list celebrity or an up-and-coming influencer, we understand the factors that drive the value of your intellectual property.

Our lawyers use their knowledge of our clients’ industries and business objectives, and their skill as advisers, dealmakers and litigators, to provide business-focused insight, innovative approaches and strategic solutions that maximize opportunities, minimize risk and fend off competitive challenges.

From patent, copyright, trademark and personality assets to data privacy and security, domain name issues, and cutting-edge consumer engagement applications, we are fluent in all nuances of today’s intellectual property law.

We advise IP owners in complex transactions and represent them in high-stakes disputes. We get deals done — counseling on the IP-related aspects of mergers and acquisitions; conducting due diligence, intellectual property audits and valuations; and facilitating asset-based financing, licenses and joint ventures.

We also help clients protect and defend their intellectual property rights, advocating in federal and state courts and before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, at the International Trade Commission and in the Court of Federal Claims.

It is an exciting time to be in the legal industry. As the rate of change in our society accelerates, digital transformation continues to alter the paradigms of business. Now, more than ever, our clients need lawyers who enable them to see beyond the next turn — and help them innovate, grow and evolve.

At Loeb & Loeb, this is what we do every day.

We represent a wide range of organizations, as well as high net worth individuals and families. We help these clients identify opportunities, expand into new markets, launch innovative products and services, protect their assets, resolve disputes, and connect with audiences in new ways. We know our clients’ businesses and understand their personal objectives. And we have tremendous multidisciplinary know-how in today’s technology and mobility trends, which continue to transcend all industries.
