You can’t fake passion.
We genuinely love helping companies grow. Make no mistake: patents, trademarks and copyrights are not commodities. Each requires in-depth experience in their respective industries from experts that are accessible throughout the process. Our seasoned attorneys are extremely well-versed in a variety of fields, from software and the internet of things to energy, medical devices, life sciences, patentable plants and consumer products. More importantly, we are passionate about being very hands-on when we work with companies—you will always have access to the lead professional working on your project. We’ve developed a reputation for being true business partners and solving problems in the most complex areas of patent, trademark and copyright law. It’s no wonder many of our clients have used us repeatedly over the years.
At Gearhart Law, LLC, we pride ourselves on offering quality, professional legal services, and we’re proud to serve New Jersey, New York, and Philadelphia. We’re leading patent lawyers, trademark lawyers, and copyright lawyers providing expert advice and consultation. Most attorneys work as generalists, so they don’t have the specialized experience and training that’s necessary to handle the intricacies of patent, trademark, and copyright law. For these highly technical and complex areas, it’s always recommended that you seek out legal advice from professionals with focused areas of practice. Whether you need help navigating the details of patent law for your latest invention or you need assistance protecting and safeguarding your intellectual property, we’re always here to help.
