namwolfThe National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) has launched an initiative to increase corporate America’s use of minority and women owned law firms for intellectual property (IP) law matters.

NAMWOLF plans to unveil the IP initiative at its upcoming annual meeting, October 3-6, at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in Washington D.C.

“Corporate legal departments don’t always think of minority and women owned firms when they look for outside counsel to represent them in IP matters,” said Jose Rojas, NAMWOLF IP initiative task force co-chairman. “But the fact is that a substantial number of NAMWOLF member firms have significant expertise and experience in this rapidly expanding area of the law. The goal of our initiative is get that word out to as many corporate legal departments as possible,” added Rojas.

Minority and women owned law firms are admitted to NAMWOLF following a screening process – overseen by in-house counsel at major corporations – that requires they be AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell, have a record of successfully representing multiple institutional clients, and pass a detailed reference check with only superior recommendations from clients.

“Virtually every corporation in America has IP issues,” said Yolanda Coly, NAMWOLF Managing Director. “We hope that this initiative – which is patterned after a successful ongoing initiative focusing on insurance law – will let corporations know they have an alternative to hire experienced minority and women owned law firms that are vetted by respected in-house counsel to handle registration, licensing and litigation of trademark, patent, licensing, copyright, and other IP matters.”

NAMWOLF was founded in 2001. It is a nonprofit trade association comprised of minority and women owned law firms and other interested parties throughout the United States.
