Our cutting-edge clients
As a leading international patent firm, E&F showcases diverse expertise and extensive technical knowledge that has cemented our reputation as a top choice for both Israeli and international clients. This is evidenced by our strong global reputation and proven track record in the filing, drafting and prosecuting of patents all over the world.

Through the unique synergy within the other members of the Ehrlich Group, our clients are put at a considerable advantage by the cross-border legal practice and litigation experience of EN&M, which helps resolve any oppositions to IP rights, infringement disputes involving patents, trademarks, designs or copyrights, or many other types of IP disputes. EN&M also bring experience in litigation proceedings before the Patent and Trademark Registrar, as well as before Israeli Courts, including litigation support in foreign countries including the U.S., South America, Europe and the Far East.
