    About Our Clients

    Since the firm’s founding in 1983, Brooks Kushman has built a national reputation as a premier intellectual property law firm. We have accomplished this by attracting the best talent, and by working closely with clients to understand how their business really operates and what drives the company or brand.  

    We put that newfound knowledge to good use, uncovering ways to make their whole portfolio work harder – point it in new directions, explore new ways to monetize it, and see that it’s better protected. And not just from fraud and theft, but from the vagaries of the global marketplace.
