We formed Meunier Carlin & Curfman for you, our clients. Our mission is to provide value without compromise.
Our firm has grown in just a few short years to become one of the largest IP boutiques in the South. We have nearly 30 patent bar registered practitioners rivaling the size and prowess of the IP groups of the biggest firms in Atlanta.
Meunier Carlin & Curfman LLC was founded to provide first tier, proficient law firm services comparable to “big-law” without the high-dollar mark-up. We accomplish this task through a “cut the fat but not the muscle” mode of operation. We hire attorneys and patent agents that have excelled in their previous law firms and matriculated to the top of their classes. The expertise and quality of our people are our “muscle.” These elements are what allow us to provide first tier law firm work product and services in every instance. Yet, you will not find the added frills with our firm such as lavish retreats at five-star resorts or large art collections that are widely regarded as staples of the “white shoe” first tier firms. These elements are the “fat” that we have cut.
Meunier Carlin & Curfman works with small and large corporations, emerging growth companies, non-profits, universities, research institutions, and their capital and advisory partners, to secure, assert and defend their intellectual property rights. We serve clients with the highest level of IP capability available at any firm, but with the flexibility and value offered by a small firm structure.
Meunier Carlin & Curfman clients benefit from our high level of technical experience. All of our service providers have some combination of a technical degree (most with advanced technical degrees), industry technical experience and/or academic research experience. Our IP legal experience is also among the highest levels found in the industry. Our professionals have gained deep experience at top law firms, corporations and research institutions. With accuracy and efficiency, we can recognize and solve your IP concerns and help you maximize your opportunities.
Our professionals cover each major scientific discipline common to IP practice, including electrical, mechanical, computer science, chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical devices. These technical fields translate to our serving an extraordinary diversity of niche technology areas and industries. Our clients include corporations that design and manufacture consumer products, world-class research universities, physicians, electronic payment providers, textile and apparel makers, pharmaceutical companies, and medical and diagnostic device makers.
We have cast off the accoutrements of big-firm practice and have focused on the essential elements that add value to our relationship: top quality work product, responsive service, state-of-the-art law firm technology and a team of deeply experienced professionals. Though purposefully lean on unnecessary expenses, Meunier Carlin & Curfman is fully staffed with associate attorneys, patent agents, paralegals and trained IP legal secretaries. By offering expertly tailored services that precisely meet your needs and respect your budget, Meunier Carlin & Curfman offers value without compromise.
