LOS ANGELES, CA — Craig Gelfound, head of Arent Fox LLP’s Intellectual Property practice in Los Angeles, has once again been honored by the Daily Journal as one of the Top Intellectual Property Lawyers in California, with 2017 marking his seventh consecutive year of this recognition.

In addition, the Los Angeles Business Journal named Mr. Gelfound as one of the “Most Influential IP Attorneys” in Los Angeles in their August 14 edition, where they noted that he 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 for multinational corporations, middle market companies, and emerging entrepreneurships.”

Mr. Gelfound has been recognized not only for his success in prosecuting and managing the domestic and global portfolios of major corporations, but also for developing an exceptional team and infrastructure to handle the ongoing growth in the Los Angeles office’s patent and trademark practice. Under Mr. Gelfound’s leadership, the Intellectual Property practice in Los Angeles has grown to over 35 lawyers and legal professionals.

“As showcased by his seven consecutive IP honors from the Daily Journal and his recognition in the Los Angeles Business Journal, Craig is constantly at the forefront of changing technologies and innovative legal strategies,” said Aaron H. Jacoby, Los Angeles Managing Partner. “We congratulate Craig on his achievement and his leadership on behalf of our California IP matters.”

Arent Fox’s Intellectual Property group is ranked nationally by Chambers USA and recognized as the best in the country for client service. Mr. Gelfound has also been recognized as an Intellectual Property “Super Lawyer” by California Super Lawyer Magazine and as a top IP lawyer by Legal 500.
