Craig Gelfound Named Top IP Attorney by the Daily Journal for the Ninth Consecutive Year
Craig has been recognized for his extraordinary track record with successfully monetizing intellectual property to maximize return on investment by procuring, managing, licensing and enforcing domestic and global portfolios. He has been honored among the nation's best attorneys and as a leader in his field by Legal 500. The Los Angeles Business Journal recently named Mr. Gelfound as one of the “Most Influential IP Attorneys” in Los Angeles. Mr. Gelfound has also been repeatedly recognized as an Intellectual Property “Super Lawyer” by California Super Lawyer and an “IP Star” by Managing IP (MIP) Magazine.
“Craig continues to be at the top of his game in dealing with the intricacies of intellectual property law, and it is no surprise that the Daily Journal continues to commend his portfolio management and patent prosecution practice year after year,” said Aaron H. Jacoby, Los Angeles Managing Partner. “Arent Fox’s prominent IP practice represents top companies coast-to-coast and internationally and has cemented its work in California under Craig's leadership.”
Mr. Gelfound graduated with a JD, magna cum laude, from Southwestern University School of Law, where he currently serves as an adjunct member of the faculty teaching patent law. He received a BS in electrical engineering from San Diego State University. He brings considerable experience in telecommunications and technology to his practice, having designed signal processors for military radar applications when he worked for a major telecommunications company early in his career. He also served as project manager for one of the largest air traffic control radar contracts with the United States Air Force.
