Cahn & Samuels was founded in 1997 by two attorneys with distinguished credentials in the field of intellectual property law. In the era of skyrocketing billing rates and onerous hours' requirements, the founders sought to establish a small firm dedicated to providing high-quality, cost-effective service in a collegial setting. In this regard, the firm has grown cautiously over the years, limiting its membership to other intellectual property professionals with proven track records and a similar credo of professionalism.

Today, Cahn & Samuels consists of a team of five attorneys with a diverse range of technological backgrounds covering virtually every technological area of practice. The firm represents a broad range of clients, from individual inventors and small technology start-ups to Federal laboratories and Fortune 50 multi-national corporations. Cahn & Samuels also represents clients in a broad range of activities, with proven core strengths extending from procurement and licensing of patents and trademarks, to portfolio development, enforcement, and litigation in the state and Federal courts. At the heart of the practice, Cahn & Samuels always works closely with its clients to ensure budgetary concerns are met.
