The Idea Attorneys® In The News...

Founding partners Glenn Gold and John Rizvi are regularly featured in the press and quoted on important matters of intellectual property law. As recognized experts in intellectual property law, you will find them in national legal journals and intellectual property publications, such as The American Lawyer, Intellectual Property Today and Inventor's Digest, as well as The Orlando Sentinel, The South Florida Business Journal, The Sun-Sentinel, The Sioux Falls Business Journal, Broward Bar, InternetCoast and Inventare Maximus. Additionally, they have authored an educational audio series entitled Patent Protection: A Practical Guide for Inventors explaining the nuances of the patenting process.

Our attorneys have dedicated their careers exclusively to securing and preserving rights in new ideas. We believe it is better to excel in a single area of the law than to be mediocre in a number of different fields. As such, we focus on doing one thing -- protecting new ideas -- and doing it better than anyone else. We are The Idea Attorneys®.
