Welcome to the Alderman Law Office
We provide high-quality, cost-effective legal services for sophisticated clients. With more than 35 years of intellectual property experience, we help clients develop, license, maintain, protect and enforce their intellectual property rights, whether the client is a software company, content creator or technology company, or involved in information technology, entertainment or the arts. The Alderman Law Office works with large institutions, particularly sports teams and entertainment venues, as well as start-up companies and individuals, across the U.S. and around the globe, to build value for clients by leveraging technology and intellectual property. For many creators, the value of their brand lies in enforcing the exclusivity of their intellectual property. This property may also be monetized through licensing or sale, and the very asset value of many companies, particularly entertainment and technology companies, is in their intangible property.
Located in the heart of the Washington, DC business district, The Alderman Law Office is a trusted advisor to clients in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia, as well as nationally and throughout the world. Most of our business is based upon referrals and we welcome the opportunity to assist new and returning clients.
