Our History
IPLA, established in 2004, is proud to be the largest trademark specialty law firm in the nation.

Our exclusive attention to trademark services enables us to provide a level of experienced counsel and strategy you just won’t find anywhere else. We bring this experience and insight to bear on the trademark portfolios of companies of all sizes – from startups to Fortune 500 companies. We work with our clients from the moment they consider registering until years after they are a world-renowned brand, maintaining their standing around the globe.

We operate on the principle that growing organizations need proactive, experienced trademark counsel, and that high quality counsel should be delivered in a time efficient manner and under budget.

How We Work
Our team of attorneys lead the charge in securing and protecting your trademark rights. Although we are proud of our capable staff, we understand that you want your trademark matters handled personally by the lawyers you hired – and we deliver on this promise.

This level of personalized attention is unfortunately completely unique in our industry – we wish it weren’t.

We serve your legal needs from our three offices across North America, in San Diego, San Francisco, and Toronto. Our global services are delivered through our ongoing partnerships with hand-picked, leading trademark firms across the globe, and are directly and meticulously overseen by us.

Our Commitment to Diversity
We believe that a diverse and inclusive company is key to our success.

Diversity is an integral part of IPLA’s culture and we are dedicated to practicing and maintaining a diverse workplace that values and celebrates our differences. Diverse perspectives come from many sources including gender, race, sexual orientation, culture, age, and life experience. IPLA is committed to continuing our mission of making diversity and inclusion a central part of what we do.

Our Commitment to Efficiency
Our focus is always on containing costs and helping clients budget successfully for their trademark matters. To this end, IPLA has pioneered a unique fixed fee billing system for all domestic and international trademark matters that is inclusive of all fees and costs through registration of a trademark.

Since we represent start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, we understand the importance of keeping within budgets and we do not stray from our mission to provide superior service at reasonable rates.
