“Pulling work away from some of the battleships of the legal market, Riebling has the wherewithal to handle large-scale global portfolios, sweeping enforcement campaigns and time-pressed clearance efforts. Aggressive in safeguarding client rights, excellent at giving gut checks, as sophisticated as its larger competitors in terms of technical infrastructure, well networked internationally and great on price, the boutique is on a roll.” -- World Trademark Review
Specializing in Intellectual Property Law, Management & Litigation
Challenging the status quo is a pillar of our way of life.
We believe in testing the limits of what is possible and helping the truth emerge.
We believe in the power of creativity.
We believe progress is promoted when those who create benefit from their own imagination and identity.
We believe public health and safety are promoted when consumers are not deceived.
We believe IP theft harms both companies and their employees — whose jobs depend on fair competition.
Our firm exists to be the voice for authors, artists, musicians, creators, IP owners and brands.
Our desire is to help as many people as we can and be one of the best firms in our space, a firm that you are proud to be a partner with and that inspires others.
Our signature is precision. Both in our answers and in everything we do. There is no B team here.
Our clients rarely just want to know the law; they want to figure out what to do.
We are different by providing more nimble and cost-effective solutions that giant bureaucratic law firms cannot — in a fraction of the time.
We have the flexibility as an agile response team to discover uncharted paths, provide real-time answers, and execute game plans with creative, resourceful and highly-effective advocacy.
Our affordable, easier access to IP answers and our global reach for IP enforcement means our clients have several measureable competitive advantages: better case management, faster legal action, streamlining of legal complexity, minimizing of legal risks and smarter adaptation to change.
We surpass the competition when it comes to the overall client experience. There are three reactions to legal services: good, bad, and wow. Wow is the one we aim for in every matter. Our mantras of "always on" and "always there" bring a concierge level of availability and personal attention. Our relationship with you is at the heart of everything we do. We share your mission and promise an air of collaboration.
Our firm was founded upon client relationships and experiences that have lasted over 30 years and continue to this day. We are modern enough to survive the times, but old-fashioned enough that our friendships and loyalties last forever through thick and thin. We are not just lawyers. We are your confidential trusted advisor for all decision points.
We are the gold standard for global brand management. We specialize in large-scale trademark and copyright portfolio protection and enforcement, unfair competition, domain names, false advertising, software development agreements, commercial contracts, rights online and in electronic media, trade secrets and related counseling, litigation and licensing.
Our elite clientele is nationwide and worldwide. Our clients include famous household brand names, publicly traded companies, start-ups, professional sports leagues, entertainment media, Olympic governing bodies, advertising agencies, toy companies, Silicon Valley technology companies, domain name registries, software developers, communications service providers, educational content providers, resort hotels, battery manufacturers and U.S. and foreign law firms. Our oldest publicly traded client, founded in 1888, acquired IP rights from Thomas Edison.
We have grown significantly by word of mouth since our founding. Our client list exceeds 700 companies and IP owners. We coordinate and manage over 4,000 U.S. and worldwide IP matters, litigations and disputes — in 80 countries.
Peter J. Riebling, a Partner at a large AmLaw 60 law firm with over 30 years of front-line IP law expertise and formerly a Partner in Charge of Associates (PICA), created the firm in 2016 to break the mold. Since its founding, the firm has added professionals with significant experience in IP, commercial contracts, securities, corporate finance, and corporate governance gained from working at other AmLaw 100 law firms. We are now a team of seven with three attorneys, two paralegals, one senior docketing specialist and one CFO. We are built to last. Just like you.
We are located close to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the U.S. Copyright Office, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and other key government offices. We practice before the U.S. District Courts in Washington, D.C. and the Eastern District of Virginia, both for our own clients, and as local counsel for law firms located in other jurisdictions. We are also routinely engaged by indemnified parties in federal court litigation to act as their shadow counsel.
The legal market is changing. A new world needs a new approach. The big do not eat the small. But the fast eat the slow. And RIEBLING is leading the way.
Join the revolution.
