Ehrlich Group was founded in 1995 by Gal Ehrlich and houses over 150 professionals in the field of intellectual property. The group is a leading Israeli full-service IP organisation that comprises three pillars:
- Ehrlich & Fenster (GE Ehrlich (1995) Ltd), a patent and trademark attorney firm;
- Ehrlich, Neubauer & Melzer (EN&M), a boutique IP litigation firm; and
- IPTrade, an IP monetisation initiative.
Ehrlich & Fenster consists of highly experienced IP professionals whose expertise spans all scientific and technological fields and who are qualified to practise before the trademark and patent offices of key jurisdictions, including Israel, the United States, Europe, East Asia and South America.
EN&M consists of attorneys and legal assistants with extensive legal experience in all areas of intellectual property, including patents, copyright, trademarks, designs and trade secrets. The firm’s staff has enriched experience in conducting litigation proceedings before the Israel Patent and Trademark Registrar and the Israeli courts, as well as providing litigation support in foreign countries including the United States, South America, various countries in Europe and East Asia. The firm is diligent in creating strategies and managing the registration of trademarks and designs, producing analyses and legal opinions, as well as drafting agreements including licence agreements, development services agreements and more, related to all aspects of intellectual property.
In managing IP portfolios, the group ensures that clients receive an optimal service taking into consideration a wide spectrum of business needs, with proper utilisation of time and budget restraints.
The synergy between the group’s branches (patent attorneys, lawyers and commercialisation company) harnesses the cumulative experience of the professionals to create a unique first-class protection and enforcement strategy. We work as a collective unit, collegially and professionally, to protect clients’ ideas, ensure their intangible assets and maximise their value, and bring about the best results in any legal proceeding locally and overseas.
The group’s exceptional reputation, as reflected – individually and as a group – in local and international official IP rankings, extends from our broad experience and worldwide operations, which are based on our comprehensive technological and scientific know-how and the good relationships we have established with professional peers in leading offices across the world.
Our group drafts and submits new patent applications and manages their prosecution in Israel and directly in the United States for leading multinational corporations and Fortune 500 companies such as IBM, Samsung, Huawei, Monsanto, Salesforce, Pfizer, Philips, and Boeing, as well as universities and medical and research institutions in Israel and around the world such as the Technion, Weizmann Institute, Ariel University, Tel Aviv University, Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Development (Volcani Center), Tel Hashomer Hospital, Ichilov Hospital, Hadasit Medical Research Services and Development, Mor Research Applications, Columbia University, universities and research institutes from China and the Philippines, as well as security industries and offices such as Rafael, Elbit Systems, Israel Electric Company, Israel Police and many others. The group also represents joint ventures established by leading entities in Israel and abroad, numerous profile companies from the high-tech domain, biotech and pharmaceutical sectors, start-ups, technological incubators, and private individuals, some of whom are Nobel Prize and Wolf Prize laureates.
Additionally, in what may be considered our group’s crowning achievement, we provide patent drafting, filing and prosecution services directly with the USPTO on behalf of our international clientele, as well as represent foreign associates across the globe for IP services in the United States, including for their most-respected clients and well-known companies in all scientific and technological fields. In this sense, our highly successful US practice competes directly with our colleagues from the United States.
The group’s law firm represents a wide range of domestic and international leading entities in various sectors, such as pharmaceuticals, communications, high-tech, biotechnology, medical devices, agriculture and consumer products.
