Sherman IP LLP was founded on January 1, 1993, by Kenneth L. Sherman, to provide clients with an economically effective, yet powerful alternative in the practice of Intellectual Property law. Most law firms provide an expensive, bureaucratic approach where clients and their needs are a second priority. Our firm was founded on the principle that our client's needs are our foremost priority. Through our proprietary systems, we are able to manage our clients cases cost effectively with carefully directed legal strategies earmarked for any particular case or series of cases. Our experience has shown that clients prefer this approach and after working with us, our clients feel as though they have found a new legal home. Many of our clients have called us "their lawyers" since our inception and some have been with us for over 25 years. Our dedication in earning our clients' trust is by meeting their Intellectual Property needs today and for many years to come.
Our firm was founded as SHERMAN & SHERMAN, APC (1993-2003), and was known as MYERS ANDRAS SHERMAN, LLP (2003-2009) and SHERMAN & ZARRABIAN, LLP (2010-2014) prior to adopting the brand SHERMAN IP on January 1, 2015.
WHO WE ARE
As a "Hard Intellectual Property" law firm, Sherman IP specializes in the prosecution of patent applications, trademark applications, and copyright applications, as well as the licensing and litigation of patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret matters and transactions involving our clients and their business models. We strive to create legal strategies that protect your market, your business and your intellectual property assets. Many of our attorneys are required to have backgrounds in the hard sciences such as Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Applied Mathematics and to be experts in their fields so they can represent you before the United States Patent Office. In support of our experienced professionals, we have a team of highly trained and experienced paralegals and legal secretaries who provide quality assistance at a reduced cost to our clients. Our attorneys and staff apply our philosophy in conjunction with our proprietary systems to bring simplicity to the most complex matters. Using our particular techniques, our firm offers thorough and efficient representation in all matters, regardless of the degree of complexity.

With over 75 years of combined experience in the firm, we are proud to offer all of our clients the same respect and representation regardless of the scope or cost of their need.
