Innovation plays a crucial role in the survival and success for companies in today’s fast-paced and competitive business environment. Protecting that innovation, dealing with the regulatory and compliance challenges that come with it, as well as pushing forward with new market-changing advances are all today’s reality.

Our clients tell us that the need has never been greater for forward-looking intellectual property strategy and advice combined with complex business and commercial litigation abilities.

In response, we are thrilled to jointly announce that Mauriel Kapouytian Woods and Maschoff Brennan have merged, effective January 1, 2024. The firm is now operating as Maschoff Brennan Gilmore Israelsen & Mauriel LLP dba Maschoff Brennan.
