Erdős Intellectual Property Law + Startup Legal

Erdős Intellectual Property Law + Startup Legal seeks to protect those who dare to innovate.  The firm's name is a homage to the Erdős number, a measure of connectedness and inspiration from Paul Erdős, a Hungarian academic who loved to inspire creativity in the people he met.  Erdős Intellectual Property Law + Startup Legal champions entrepreneurs, individuals, innovators, and creatives.  The Practice anchored its presence in the Arts District and the Innovation Quarter in Winston-Salem, North Carolina to bolster the city's campaign to be The City of the Arts and Innovation.  At Erdős, we know that the greatest investors in a business are its founders.  We want you to get the return on the great investment you've made or are about to make.  That goal is at the center of the counseling and services we provide.  

Headquartered in the Arts District with an anchor in the Innovation Quarter of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Erdős represents creative clients globally. Our firm specializes in creative commerce, from the seed of an idea to the businesses that commercialize it. Whether you’re a musician, designer, engineer, inventor, or small business owner, we will help your intellectual property survive and thrive in the world of commerce. We are nimble, agile, and deeply committed.  We are in for the long haul, helping clients face the true, new, and unprecedented realities of the economy and the technologies that are shaping it.

Our practice is at the forefront of digital media, software, and financial industries.  Additionally, we are informed by our experience in device and business development across a variety of industries.  Our founder is a patent lawyer registered and trained by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).  We regularly bounce ideas with intellectual property master strategists who keep vigilance over USPTO trends.  Our commercialization background is practical--we're entrepreneurs ourselves, and have aided many startups, accelerators, and investors with their businesses, whether their aims were for Ya'll Street or Wall Street.

The Firm is deeply committed to creating a prosperous community. The Firm is a proud sponsor of the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership, the Piedmont Craftsman, and the Children's Law Center.
