Including more than 20 licensed patent attorneys, our practice offers a full range of services to protect and enforce the intellectual property rights of businesses across an array of sectors.

The Bradley Intellectual Property Practice Group maintains a national IP practice, with a specific concentration in the Southeast. We offer our depth and breadth of services to a diverse client base, ranging from startups and technology incubators to midsized companies and large multinational corporations. Nearly 100 of our clients are companies listed in the Fortune 500.
