Berliner Springut Steffin & Azod is an IP boutique powerhouse formed by the merger of New York firm Springut Law and Los Angeles firm Berliner Steffin Azod in 2016.
Our team of 20 award-winning lawyers and scientific advisors provides clients with world-class, cutting-edge legal representation on par with the most prestigious large firms in the nation (where many of us practiced), but with the efficiencies and client service of a boutique firm.
Berliner Springut lawyers have represented the world’s leading fashion, life sciences, technology and media companies, as well as emerging companies and universities, in the full range of IP issues they face. We’ve litigated precedent-setting trademark and internet-related cases and some of the most complex patent cases of the last decade, served as full-service outside advisors to leading brands, and developed licensing and portfolio management solutions for clients across technology and life sciences disciplines.
Our firm's size offers clients the unique advantage of personalized attention and service. Unlike many large law firms which offer an increasingly narrow set of solutions to a given problem, clients come to us when their IP challenges require a multi-disciplinary approach. We use the full range of IP rights to protect and defend brands and technologies, and show our clients how they can use these rights to better position themselves in the market. We’ve been engineers, chemists, biologists, patent-holders, product developers, and research pharmacists, and we work together to bring each of our individual talents and expertise to every assignment.
We pride ourselves on exploiting every available legal strategy to achieve a client’s business goals as quickly as possible.
