Positioning itself for the future, as it has done throughout the course of its existence, Haug Partners LLP continues to evolve, meeting the needs of its clients and the challenges facing the legal community. Though much has changed since we opened our doors in 1997, our commitment to excellence, innovation, and integrity in servicing our clients’ needs has not wavered. Originally established in New York City on the traditional intellectual property practices of patent prosecution and litigation, the firm has grown and redefined its practice areas so that it now encompasses various areas of law to complement its founding areas of expertise. Our geographic expansion into Washington, D.C., Boston, and West Palm Beach reflects that growth into a full-service intellectual property practice.

The mission of Haug Partners over its 20+ year history has been to provide synthesized, multidisciplinary legal services for life-science and technology businesses. Our size, structure, and technical capabilities allow us to seamlessly assimilate our various specialties, thus efficiently assisting our clients in the creation, expansion, and protection of their intellectual property. We align product, patent, regulatory, and commercial life-cycle strategies with the timelines, business goals, and resources of those we represent. Our personalized guidance has been a hallmark of how we address our clients’ objectives.

Haug Partners delivers added value by assembling a multidisciplinary team tailored to each client’s needs that thoroughly analyzes a matter, develops a comprehensive legal strategy, and then delivers an integrated solution. We continue to be second to none in the areas of intellectual property preparation, procurement, and litigation. Our expanded and redefined service offerings include: FDA compliance; antitrust litigation and counseling; due diligence; international trade commission actions; commercial investigations, compliance, risk mitigation, and litigation; licensing and transactions; and trademarks & unfair competition.
