Prenda Law

Chicago, Il

Intellectual property (IP) firm Prenda Law, Inc., serves as a pioneer of mass copyright infringement litigation in the United States. The Chicago-based practice currently represents copyright, patent, and trademark holders in legal disputes with thousands of infringers located nationwide. Unlike IP firms that simply send strongly worded letters to these types of under-the-radar criminals, Prenda Law focuses on more proactive solutions, such as taking infringers and hackers to court and achieving real justice for entrepreneurs and inventors.

Prenda Law serves as the largest IP firm in the United States in terms of the number of cases and the quantity of infringers sued. The practice is also one of just a few U.S. copyright infringement firms to handle cases on a contingency-fee basis. The unique model allows the practice’s clients to maintain their copyrighted works and ensures that they only pay legal fees when Prenda Law’s attorneys recover money following a settlement or verdict. The firm offers a full range of IP legal services in addition to litigation management, such as analysis of copyright infringement matters, prosecution of website hackers and trademark and copyright applications, and representation before the U.S. Copyright Royalty Board. The practice also assists businesses and individual professionals in licensing everything from copyrights and trademarks to technology and software.

Prenda Law’s attorneys and support staff command extensive backgrounds in business law and technical subjects. They also rely on a nationwide network of legal experts with training in engineering, network science, and similar fields. Furthermore, the firm uses state-of-the-art technologies to find infringement perpetrators online, sometimes even catching these IP thieves in the process of stealing copyrighted materials.
