Rothwell, Figg, Ernst & Manbeck P.C.

607 14th Street NW, Suite 800 Washington, District of Columbia 20005

Rothwell Figg is a quality-focused intellectual property firm.  We are experienced, strategic, cross-disciplined and business-oriented.  And like our clients, we understand that intellectual property is a key factor in a company’s success.

We handle all aspects of intellectual property law found in today’s complicated, highly technical business world, including patent, trademark and copyright law; litigation; trade secrets; trade names; character protection; unfair competition; licensing; counseling, contracts; First Amendment and defamation issues; and preparing and prosecuting patents, trademarks and copyrights.

Our clients are equally complex and high profile, engaging primarily in sophisticated technological areas like biotechnology and pharmaceuticals; electronics; telecommunications; computer hardware, software and the Internet; semiconductors; and a wide variety of medical and mechanical systems and devices.

Because of our long-standing and professional relationships with foreign companies and firms, we are able to handle intellectual property matters -- including prosecution, litigation and counseling -- both in the U.S. and throughout the world.  From the individual businessperson in the U.S. to the multi-national company based in Europe or Asia, our clients trust us to handle some of their most important and sensitive assets -- their intellectual property.  As a testament to this, we are proud to say that almost all of our new clients are referrals from existing clients.

We share the same belief as our clients that our people -- our attorneys and the staff who support them -- are what set us apart from every law firm.  We are one of the few firms out there that still houses all our people under one roof in Washington, DC.  This one-office, one-focus philosophy allows us to put client service first.  It also allows our partners to work directly with our associates.

Our attorneys are knowledgeable -- many have scientific or engineering degrees in addition to their legal education, and many are registered patent attorneys.  Our attorneys are experienced -- some have been practicing in the field for more than 50 years and some are newly admitted to the bar but have served as law clerks in Federal Courts, including six former clerks of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  Our lawyers are well supported - our trained paralegals, technical advisors, law clerks and legal secretaries collaborate to ensure prompt, economical delivery of work using state-of-the-art equipment and systems for communication, word processing, docketing and billing.

While the highest measure of success is our clients’ satisfaction, leading legal ranking publications and organizations also have recognized our firm and attorneys for the work we do.  You will see us regularly listed as one of the best and most highly regarded law firms in the United States and around the world – many of our attorneys are named to the list of Super Lawyers for Washington, DC; we were named Washington, DC's Top Medium Sized Firm for Intellectual Property by Super Lawyers Business Edition; some of our attorneys are named to the list of Best Lawyers© - Washington, DC, and the firm is named U.S. News - Best Lawyers "Best Law Firms" in National and Metropolitan Washington, DC.; we have been recognized as an Unparalleled Leader in Client Service by BTI Consulting and named to BTI's Honor Roll of Most Recommended Firms; along with other awards and recognitions.
