Our Story

At Meunier Carlin & Curfman we apply legal prowess and foresight to support our clients’ hard-won innovation and intellectual property. As one of the largest IP boutiques in the Southeast, we are an established law firm trusted by corporations and institutions around the world to help them solve their most intricate IP challenges.

A Focus on IP Law

For nearly a decade, the cornerstone of our client service has been our focus on legal excellence in the field of intellectual property. With nearly all our lawyers registered to practice before the patent bar, our firm has considerable experience protecting and prosecuting patents for clients who depend on new innovations and the development of cutting-edge technology for their business success. Our renowned IP litigation team handles patent, trademark, copyright, and other related matters and is led by a veteran trial attorney who is widely regarded as the “dean” of the patent bar in Atlanta.

Real-World Experience in Technology and Engineering

Behind our legal capabilities lies a deep and diverse track record in the world of technology, engineering, and business. This technical expertise, combined with our legal experience, is a core reason why our clients continue to turn to us with their intellectual property challenges.

Our team has decades of experience practicing IP law in both private practice and in-house at leading, technology-based corporations. All of our practitioners have some combination of a technical degree (most with advanced technical degrees), a background in academic research, and business experience in engineering and technical positions before entering the field of law.

Helping Clients Capitalize on Technical Innovation

Our client base represents the best in technical endeavor and enterprise. We work 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. These extraordinary clients serve a diverse collection of niche technology areas and industries such as electrical, mechanical, computer science, chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, consumer products, electronic payments, textile and apparel, and medical and diagnostic devices.

A key benefit of working with an established IP firm like MCC is our deep experience and insight developed over thousands of client representations. While this experience protecting and defending our clients’ interests provides our lawyers additional confidence in handling crucial IP matters, our firm has stayed true to the entrepreneurial culture and mindset that inspired our beginnings, and that still sparks much of our clients’ innovation. One of the core values we bring to our clients remains vital to our work: helping clients harness their own technical innovations in order to drive their business strategies and outperform the competition. We hope you’ll invite us to serve you, too.
