Welsh Flaxman and Gitler specializes in Intellectual Property law. We are pleased to have this opportunity to introduce you to Welsh Flaxman & Gitler. We focus on patent and trademark practice before the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) and counseling of clients with regard to various intellectual property matters.

Our firm is located strategically adjacent the USPTO allowing the members of our firm to maintain an intimate relationship with colleagues at the USPTO. As a result of our members being former patent examiners and maintaining a presence adjacent the USPTO for over 30 years, a strong relationship with the USPTO and its members has developed. 

The proximity to the USPTO provides the firm with ready access to the USPTO facilities and personnel. It also enhances the firm's ability to stay abreast of advances in technology and the frequent changes in jurisprudence. This has helped us successfully represent a variety of clients before the USPTO, including Fortune 500 corporations, universities, start-up companies, as well as individual inventors.


Welsh Flaxman & Gitler handles a wide variety of complex issues confronting companies and individuals as they seek to protect their innovations through the U.S. patent system.
