A Specialized Intellectual
Property Boutique Firm.

With 40 years of cutting-edge legal experience, Alderman IP is a partner for strategic and comprehensive intellectual property counsel, and is frequently consulted by other law firms for assistance with complex intellectual property, technology, content and media matters.

We help guide and advise high-end clients in the development, protection and monetization of their intellectual property, whether in technology, media or the arts. Working with software, web and multimedia companies, funded startups, sports teams and established performers and creators, we leverage and optimize the value of our clients' IP assets, regardless of media or technology.

Centrally located in Washington, DC, we work with clients both nationally and around the globe. While most of our business is referral-based, we welcome the opportunity to assist new and returning high-quality clients as well as general counsel of companies with complex IP cases or matters.

Founded by a Former General Counsel.

The firm is founded by former general counsel Elliott Alderman, who has wide-ranging legal experience in private practice as well as policy-drafting expertise from work at the U.S. Copyright Office and the Department of Justice. The firm is AV Preeminent® rated and has received Martindale-Hubbell’s top Platinum Client Champion award, which recognizes attorneys who have received ten or more client reviews with an average score of 4.5 (out of 5), or higher (an honor received by less than 1% of attorneys).
