Founded in 1987, Volpe and Koenig, P.C. is a full service intellectual property law firm headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Princeton, New Jersey. With more than 50 attorneys, patent agents, and technical advisors on our U.S. team and a global network of associated experts, we serve a diverse roster of U.S. and multinational clients across a wide range of industries.

Volpe and Koenig, P.C.
... At the Forefront of Intellectual Property Law’s Global Evolution

Working at the forefront of a dynamic and rapidly evolving field that has come to dominate commercial life, we maximize the value of intellectual property rights, offer proactive guidance for protecting intellectual property portfolios, and provide peace of mind that intellectual property assets are secure.
Our boutique practice provides worldwide client counseling on patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, e-commerce, Internet issues, technology acquisition and transfer, due diligence, nondisclosure and non-compete agreements, licensing,
and enforcement of intellectual property rights.

A Perfect Fit – For Every Client. For Every Issue.

There are no one-size-fits-all strategies and solutions at Volpe and Koenig. Instead, clients benefit from our unique and personalized Perfect Fit approach. Teams are carefully assembled so that the skills and experience of those involved are individually and collectively best suited to address the client matter at hand. Whether a team needs the expertise of a scientist, a former patent examiner, or an engineer, we have all the bases covered. By taking the time to handpick Perfect Fit teams, we are able to deliver added value to our clients by ensuring that the best people for the job are working on their behalf.

Unlike the model used by many other law firms, we view our clients as firm clients rather than as clients of any single shareholder. While one shareholder may act as a client’s primary point person, the emphasis at Volpe and Koenig is on establishing a mutually supportive Perfect Fit team. Multiple shareholders, associates, and other legal professionals become familiar with a client, allowing different perspectives and experiences to inform decisions; clients feel confident knowing that they will always be able to reach someone with ready answers who knows them well.

Finding and Keeping Great People – The Not So Secret Formula for Our Success

By hiring and retaining smart, talented, and dedicated people and situating them within a vibrant and collaborative work environment, Volpe and Koenig is able to meet – and most often exceed – the expectations of our clients. Our bench of professionals is both wide and deep, encompassing not only those with legal backgrounds, but also those with business experience, technical experience, and experience dealing with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Many of our professionals are recognized as intellectual property law “thought leaders” and subject authorities. Their legal analysis and opinion pieces regularly appear in regional, national, and international publications; they are sought after speakers and panel participants at legal conferences and other events across the country; and they hold executive positions within leading legal organizations.

In just the past few months, one of our associates was called to the White House to meet with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee for discussion about candidates to fill the late Justice Scalia’s Supreme Court seat, while one of our shareholders worked with China’s State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) to lead the Symposium of the SIPO/U.S. Bar Liaison Council.

Volpe and Koenig has been named as one of the area’s “Top Workplaces” by The Philadelphia Inquirer, and we take our commitment to staff training and development very seriously. Through a comprehensive mentoring program, our associates and summer clerks are exposed to multiple contacts throughout the firm and a wide variety of topical issues. Our recruiting brochure highlights the fact that there are “no jerks” at our firm, and we make it a priority to maintain an open door policy for the benefit of shareholders and junior professionals alike.

Volpe and Koenig In The News and In The Community

Volpe and Koenig is regularly ranked as a “Best Law Firm” in the U.S. News & World Report/ Best Lawyers® annual list, and firm attorneys are frequently honored as “Best Lawyers,” “Pennsylvania Super Lawyers,” and “Pennsylvania Rising Stars.” Many have been publicly recognized with achievement awards by their alma maters and other organizations.

While we deeply appreciate these acknowledgements, we are equally as proud of our contributions to the local community. Since 2007, Volpe and Koenig has annually awarded two $20,000 grants to deserving local non-profit organizations through our IPromise Charitable Giving Fund. Beyond that, over the last year alone, we have sponsored the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce Young Citizens Awards and lent a helping hand to organizations including Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, Toys for Tots, Fox Chase Cancer Center, and the Malawi Project.

Standing Above the Crowd in an Increasingly Complex and Shifting Global Environment

Intellectual property laws have changed more over the last few years than they have in the previous quarter century. As the digital world increases in complexity and the global business landscape shifts with the explosion of commerce in China, India, and other markets, keeping up with case law has become more challenging than ever.
