Established in 1978, Greenblum & Bernstein, P.L.C. is a leading intellectual property (IP) law firm that represents clients around the globe in all aspects of IP protection, procurement, licensing and litigation. We represent companies that own many of the world’s most-recognizable brands, and we have helped secure the IP rights to chemical, biotech, mechanical, electrical, pharmaceutical, telecommunications and other technologies that have changed the world.
With a particular focus on patent and trademark law, we handle matters involving all forms of IP for both domestic and international clients. Many of our attorneys are former patent judges and patent examiners, including the former Chief Judge and Vice Chief Judge of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Board of Appeals and Interferences. Our attorneys have backgrounds in technical disciplines including aerospace, biotechnology, chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceuticals, applied physics, computer science and numerous other engineering fields.
Broad Experience in a Wide Range of IP Disciplines
As our clients’ IP counsel, we provide advice and representation in all areas of need. We work closely with our clients’ business and technical executives to understand their goals and priorities, and we work directly with our clients’ scientists, engineers, brand developers, and other experts to gain a clear understanding of what we need to protect and how we need to protect it. We file, prosecute and challenge registration applications and appeals with the USPTO, and we provide representation for domestic and international companies in IP litigation throughout the United States.
We also have extensive experience in domestic and international transactions involving IP assets. From licenses and sales of individual IP assets to large-scale transfers of IP portfolios in corporate mergers and acquisitions (M&A), our firm offers strategic and forward-thinking representation based upon well over 40 years of relevant experience. From ownership and sublicensing considerations to addressing pending litigation risks and mitigating the tax consequences of IP transactions, we examine our clients’ proposed transactions from all angles, and we help our clients make informed decisions with their companies’ immediate and long-term interests in mind.
Leaders in High Tech, Biotechnology, and Pharmaceutical IP Law
While we serve all types of companies in all types of IP matters, we are particularly well-known for our leadership in the high-tech, biotech, and pharmaceutical sectors. We have represented Fortune 500 and other global companies in matters involving fintech, automotive and numerous other innovative electrical and computer technologies, and we are known internationally for our representation of generic and brand-name pharma companies in Hatch-Waxman litigation. In the biotech space, we work with companies that are on the forefront of genetic engineering, and we have been involved in the registration and licensing of many cutting-edge biotechnological developments in recent years.
