About Us

At Fishman Stewart, we believe that intellectual property should be managed in the same way companies manage their capital.

As strategic advisors to CEOs and senior executives throughout the world, we help maximize the value of “intellectual capital.” While all companies have strategies for maximizing and leveraging their use of capital, they may not have a plan for managing intellectual property. Patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets are key elements of a company’s business strategy.
