We currently coordinate and manage a docket of over 5,400 US and worldwide IP matters, litigations and disputes, in 80 countries.

We believe human progress is promoted when those who create benefit from their own imagination.

We believe public health and safety are promoted when consumers are protected from deception about source.

We believe IP theft harms not just companies but their employees, whose jobs depend on fair competition.

We exist to be the voice for IP owners and creators, and to help protect their identities and brands from imitations.

We challenge the status quo, test the limits of what is possible and help the truth emerge.

We are a firm that you will be proud to partner with and that inspires others.

Our competitive advantage is that we are not mass market and have more flexibility to provide dedicated service and attention.

Our firm was founded upon client relationships and experiences that have lasted over 25 years and continue to this day. We are modern enough to survive the times, but old-fashioned enough that our friendships and loyalties endure forever. Peter J Riebling, a partner at a large AmLaw 60 law firm with over 25 years of front-line IP law expertise and formerly a partner in charge of associates created the firm in 2016. Since its founding, the firm has added professionals with significant experience in intellectual property, commercial contracts, securities, corporate finance and corporate governance gained from working at other AmLaw 100 law firms. The firm is currently a team of seven with three attorneys, two paralegals, one senior docketing specialist and one chief financial officer.
