Startup Group

Greenblum and Bernstein’s Startup Group is sensitive to the unique IP issues facing startup companies in the United States. We provide tailored IP services for startup companies, determining how best to efficiently meet the company’s IP goals without breaking the bank. We can also support and coordinate with a startup company’s in-house, outside and/or foreign counsel efficiently and cost effectively.

We counsel startup companies in the United States and throughout the world with respect to U.S. IP issues. Among the areas we advise startup companies are intellectual property audits, freedom to operate studies, due diligence reviews, intellectual property asset management, competitor’s patent studies, preparing and filing patent applications, NDAs and other agreements, patent licensing, U.S. Patent Office procedures and proceedings, patent litigation counseling and representation, and strategic counseling.

The Startup Group’s members have particular knowledge, experience, and resources to assist foreign startup companies working with foreign patent firms to navigate the numerous IP issues which arise in the United States. We also are experienced in developing tailored strategies to maximize profits from IP via licensing, sale and/or litigation. Additionally, we can help position the IP of the company to make it more attractive to potential buyers and funders.
