Middleton Reutlinger’s intellectual property team is not only the largest in Kentucky, it is also one of the most highly-regarded and active in the Southeast. Each year many of the firm’s attorneys are named “IP Stars” by the highly-respected Managing Intellectual Property IP Handbook, and the firm is frequently ranked either as the top or among the top Louisville-based IP legal services providers. But the firm's IP work includes national and global issues, as we routinely protect clients’ interests in regions including: Australia, Canada, Europe, Asia, and Russia. You could say Middleton Reutlinger combines the personal touch of a regional firm with the intellectual scope and abilities of an international one.
What sets Middleton Reutlinger apart is its position on the leading edge of a wide range of IP fields including: biotechnology and life sciences, software and computer, copyright and internet, patent and trademark law, and litigation. We also realize the value trade secrets hold for businesses. We can both advise clients on how to best protect these secrets, and how to most effectively defend them.

- Winning a $28 million judgment for clients in Minco v. Combustion Engineering, in a case centered on patent infringement.
- Handling matters before administrative tribunals including the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, the U.S. Copyright Office, and related appeals to the Federal Circuit.
