As someone charged with protecting, managing and licensing the intellectual property rights of a world-class educational institution, you take IP issues very seriously and seek partnerships with outside IP counsel of the highest quality. You also need counsel that can communicate effectively with academics and understand the complicated technology that emerges from your institution’s biomedical, life science and physical science laboratories. Kolisch Hartwell can meet or exceed your requirements.

For more than six decades, our firm has helped institutions of all types to protect, license and enforce employee-created intellectual property. We offer the type of premium quality IP counsel typically associated with a handful of large national IP firms, but due to our size and location, we can do so at far lower rates. Read how firm size and location affect billing rates. We also provide predictability through detailed and accurate cost estimates, confidence that your work will be actively managed and usually performed by an experienced partner-level attorney, and the responsiveness that only a smaller boutique firm can offer.

The Kolisch Hartwell team includes attorneys with PhDs in physics, biophysics, biology and chemistry, who are themselves accomplished former academics. We will have no problems communicating with your employee inventors, and we have extensive experience working within the institutional guidelines of academic tech transfer departments.
