Craig Gelfound Recognized as a Leader in His Field by both Legal 500 and IP Stars

LOS ANGELES — Craig Gelfound, head of Arent Fox LLP’s Intellectual Property practice in Los Angeles, has once again been recognized as a leader in his field by Legal 500, which is a directory that highlights practice area teams who are providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice to corporate counsel, as well as IP Stars which is the leading resource for companies or individuals looking for experienced legal practitioners for contentious and non-contentious IP advice. These honors come on the heels of Mr. Gelfound being recognized by the Daily Journal as one of the Top Intellectual Property Lawyers in California, marking his eleventh consecutive year of this recognition, and being recognized by Chambers USA for his patent prosecution practice.

“Craig continues to knock it out of the park with his stellar work for his clients, so it comes as no surprise that Craig continues to be listed among the best in his field in intellectual property law by both Legal 500 and IP Stars,” said Aaron H. Jacoby, Los Angeles Managing Partner. “Arent Fox’s leading IP practice represents top companies on a global level, and it continues to thrive in California under Craig's leadership.”

Mr. Gelfound has an extraordinary track record of monetizing intellectual property to maximize return on investment by procuring, managing, licensing and enforcing domestic and global portfolios. He 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.
