Intellectual Property Rights Attorneys and Book Publishing Attorneys

This page features book publishing attorneys, literary lawyers, literary attorneys, and intellectual property rights attorneys—lawyers who work on copyrights, patents, trademarks, and entertainment law. A listing does not mean a recommendation by us. Before signing with any intellectual property rights attorney, check out their references.

Please note that this is a work in progress. If you’d like to nominate literary attorney, email John Kremer. I know that I have missed some intellectual property rights attorneys I truly would like to add to this list. Thanks for your support.
