About the Firm

Mendelson IP was founded on a simple principle; quality patent and intellectual property legal services and counsel should be more affordable. Quality, value, and practical advice are the cornerstones to our practice.

Now entering its second decade, Mendelson IP has, from the outset, been structured to maximize the efficient use of cost-effective technology and minimize overhead. We run a lean and efficient operation and pass the savings along to you, the client.

From the beginning, the Firm’s philosophy has been that there was a need to rethink the traditional model of a law firm, bloated by a small army of support staff and an overhead that inevitably flows from a structure designed to maximize the number of hours an attorney can bill. The costs of all those salaries, the rent for the premium office space those people occupy, and the inefficiencies that flow from it all are passed on to the client. It’s no wonder that billing rates are out of control.

More importantly, we understand that while your intellectual property issues are critical to your business, you are not simply in the business of obtaining, licensing, or challenging patents. Each opinion; each license; each patent in your portfolio serves a specific business purpose, whether it is to gain market entry, protect your commercial product, provide licensing revenue, impede the competition, or to strategically innovate around your competitor’s IP. When handling your matter, we work closely with you, the client, to ensure that our actions are informed and guided by the business purpose that you seek to achieve. We don’t operate in a vacuum; we immerse ourselves in your industry and issues and we question everything.

At Mendelson IP you will get the same first-rate service and counsel you would expect from a larger firm, but without the large firm price tag. You can be assured that your matters are handled by an experienced IP attorney who not only understands the law, but also how it applies to both the technical and the practical realities of your specific industry.

Customer Testimonials


Robin Wilson
Follow The Leader Dynamics

“After we dealt poorly with a product recall, we were worried that our business was going to fail. We had marketing people who could tell us how to promote our products, but nobody could tell us how to regain our customers’ trust and loyalty. Wedge’s Marketing Makeover program put us back in the game.”


Nathan Hall
Groundhog Industries

“We knew we had a great product, but we didn’t know how to take the business to the next level so that we could see real success. The comprehensive Dynamic Growth program offered by Wedge worked with us every step of the way so we could grow our company without sacrificing our company spirit. We just made Fortune 500!”

“Working with Wedge was awesome – we knew that they would offer us a very strong framework and that it would be handled in a very organized and professional way. I couldn’t recommend them enough.”


Anita Roberts
Happy Ceramics

“Our production had been ramped up to full time, but the profits just weren’t there. We didn’t know what we were doing wrong. Wedge showed us an amazing number of areas we could cut our overhead, from more efficient parts layout and energy-efficient lighting to recycling waste and more effective work flow.”
