Gerry Elman

Practice/Organization Description

Elman Technology Law, P.C. serves the legal needs of clients in intellectual property and Internet-related business matters. We believe that our extensive experience in patent, trademark and other aspects of the law related to technology enables us to provide clients with the educated guidance needed to develop an innovation from concept stage through realization in the marketplace. As a pioneer in cyberlaw, we assist clients doing business via the Internet.

More and more, our clients are seeking our confidential advice on cybersecurity. They find that major customers increasingly require them to show that their data and systems are secure against intrusion, and to document their insurance protection against that serious risk. We help them to minimize their exposure to liability by continually updating to the latest "best practices" to protect their data and information systems. And that way they can qualify for the strongest cyberinsurance at reasonable cost.

Our motto: STRATEGIC LAWYERING. CULTIVATING INNOVATION. We think of strategic lawyering as a collaboration with clients in which we strive to use the tools of the law strategically to fulfill their overall goals, more than just reactively or episodically. Cultivating innovation reminds us of the organic nature of change and that our function is to help nurture invention and its implementation in the real world. As the legal environment for innovation is transformed, we remain vigilant and continually seek to help clients develop an overall strategy for deploying intellectual property to maximize long-term business value.
