Dinsmore & Shohl is a Cincinnati-based general practice firm with 21 offices across nine states and Washington, DC. Its team of more than 650 attorneys cover a range of practice areas, including intellectual property, which was added to the firm's practice area list in 1996.
The IP group has grown significantly over the past decade, from 15 IP practitioners to more than 90 today – many of whom are admitted to practice before the USPTO. The majority of the firm's IP professionals are based in Cincinnati, while 14 practice in Dayton, and two in Columbus. Dinsmore's IP group provides services in the preparation and prosecution of patent, trademark and copyright applications, opposition and cancellation proceedings for trademarks or patents, licensing and development agreements and IP counseling and litigation to domestic and international clients alike. Peers mention the firm as having "good trademark resources" and as having outside of Wood Herron "probably the largest IP department in the Greater Cincinnati Area."
Founded in 1912, Dinsmore & Shohl is an Ohio-based firm with more than 650 total attorneys who operate from three offices in West Virginia along with the other 18 offices including Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Washington, DC locations. The IP professionals at the firm are trained in technical areas including chemical, electrical, mechanical, civil, biomedical and industrial engineering, as well as aerospace, genetics and computer programming. The firm primarily assists clients with patent prosecution, but it also offers expertise in patent litigation and managing and protecting trademarks and copyrights.
Although more than 50 attorneys practice IP law in the Ohio offices, firm partner Monika Jaensson is the firm's primary IP lawyer based in the Charleston, West Virginia office. She has extensive experience with IP business transactions, drafting agreements and negotiating contracts for clients across the energy, software, construction, utilities and defense industries.
