David Postolski joined Gearhart Law in 2014 as an associate attorney practicing patent, trademark and copyright law, and has recently been named a partner at the firm. David’s main areas of expertise are software and entertainment IP law, although he is knowledgeable in all areas of IP law.
The promotion to partner is a recognition of David’s many contributions to the firm, including not only his legal work but his public outreach efforts as well. David is a prolific speaker and tireless educator, heading committees and giving presentations world-wide. In addition to continuously presenting IP topics at conferences, accelerators, high schools, and inventors’ groups in the U.S., David will be speaking in Milan, Italy, at the 2016 AIPPI World Congress on “Bon Appetite: IP and Food” in September, and in Luxembourg at the International Association of Lawyers (UIA) meeting on “American IP Perspectives and Transatlantic Data Transfers” in late September. He also will be an ambassador and IP mentor at the USPTO National Summer Institute for Teachersin Detroit, MI in July.
According to Gearhart Law’s founding partner, Richard Gearhart, “David brings an entrepreneurial perspective and level of energy to the field of IP that is rare to find. His love of IP law coupled with his enthusiasm and knowledge of the subject makes him an excellent speaker and teacher. He connects with his clients and speaks to them in language that clearly communicates the IP knowledge they need for their projects, and he provides excellent service and legal work for their IP portfolios.”
David: “Making partner at any firm is an accomplishment, but to become partner at Gearhart Law is something truly special. I am so proud to be a part of the Gearhart Family and achieving this there, has felt effortless, especially with the help of everyone there! I look forward to growing the firm in new, exciting ways.”
