A new service model - Chicago IP Law Firm

In addition, Michael recognizes that while IP may be a driving force in his clients' success, it should not distract them from their primary business. Instead, he and Gnosis IP Law provide trusted advisor services - working with clients to identify their intellectual property and issues, to develop strategic IP plans that compliment their business plan, and to establish both short and long-term plans of action. In addition, Gnosis IP Law strives to help clients avoid litigation while resolving disputes and ensuring protection of IP value. more...

Gnosis IP Law also offers clients an "embedded attorney" service, offering to help them develop plans and programs to handle most IP tasks in-house, while serving as virtual in-house IP counsel - often including regular on-site office hours. For smaller and mid-size general practice, commercial, and litigation law firms, Gnosis IP Law can act as their IP practice, ensuring that client services are provided in a seamless manner. The relationship can be established either through contract or as Of Counsel.


A New Chicago Law Firm

With a Client-Centric Service Model

After more than 25 years with two of Chicago's preeminent IP boutiques, Michael left his partnership in Marshall, Gerstein & Borun LLP because he believes clients can be better served if their needs are given more importance than firm profits. He therefore formed Gnosis IP Law in order to create a Chicago law firm with a more personalized, client-centric service model. Clients are asked from the start what information they want and how they prefer to receive it. Billing is based on models that clients choose from: hourly charging, set fees, retainer, value-based, or a combination of these. Michael's commitment to maintaining close communication with clients, requesting periodic feedback and instruction so that he can provide the most efficient, effective and economic services, sets his representation apart from the rest.
