Gerry is a industry leader when it comes to Patents, Trade mark and licensing. Very easy to discuss ideas and situations that could come up. He also prepared me with good case bad case scenarios and cost if we had any issues in our filings. I highly recommend Gerry.

After receiving a demand letter in regard to a trademark I filed, Gerry was able to successfully contact the sending attorney and find a resolution that both parties were happy with. I recommend him highly for resolving any trademark matter.

Working with Gerry and his team on intellectual property issues, including patents and trademarks, has been educational, enlightening and enjoyable. Gerry is adept at clearly explaining the ins and outs in lay terms, is happy to make recommendations and does not apply pressure to move in any given direction. I highly recommend Gerry to any individual or corporation with intellectual property legal needs

Gerry is an outstanding intellectual property attorney. I have never dealt with anyone else, professional or nonprofessional, who worked so hard to enable me to be an intelligent client. His knowledge is breathtaking and he always seems to know exactly which piece of that knowledge will apply to even the most esoteric issue.
(1.) I previously submitted the above review on LinkedIn. I'm delighted to submit it here as well.
(2.) This site only let me select 1 "type of case" below. Gerry also represented me in contract negotiations for my consulting services with a large corporation and kept me from getting burned very badly.
(3.) I can't emphasize too strongly how important it always was to Gerry for me to be an intelligent client and educate me so that I could contribute meaningfully to judgement calls, etc. This is in stark contrast to almost every other attorney I've dealt with. The others were competent, but wanted to take the ball and run with it, typically without knowing enough about me to make right decisions. Gerry went the extra mile, not only taking time to understand my position, but to point out important subtleties I had completely missed and to actively involve me in developing strategy and making decisions. That is exactly the kind of representation I wanted and needed.

Gerry Elman and his team of attorneys were a great resource for the Esri Mid-Atlantic Users Group, when I was president of the organization. They are very knowledgeable about technology law and helped the group with its non-profit incorporation. I would be happy to recommend them to those with a need for expert legal advice and counsel.

Gerry's enthusiasm and expertise in helping me with my patents is unmatched. He puts forth 100% for his clients. I felt confident in referring others to him.

Gerry is simply outstanding! He was the IP counsel for a biotech company I started and took public. A large part of our valuation came from the incredible IP Gerry was responsible for. His guidance, expertise, and shepherding through the US and PCT patent processes gave our company incredible advantages. Examples of this are almost too numerous to cover here but some include: his freedom to operate and infringement opinions uncovered something that Fish & Richardson had missed that was critical to our company - and he accomplished this in less time and for a lower cost. His ability to navigate mine fields, steer us clear, and find a new alternative when seeking protection meant that eventually we secured claims which basically allowed us to the the ONLY company that could develop prodcuts and practice in an area that the industry felt was "locked up" by a broad patent suported by a $6 billion company. Gerry, is not only extremely bright but patient, listens well, provides great examples and works with the most naive technical professional in a way that they feel great about learning and doing the work to get the materials to him that are needed to provide terrific specifications and incredible claims. I have recommended Gerry to others and he has done a similarly great job for those individuals or companies.
