Terms and Conditions of Using the AIPLA Member Directory
The American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) is a professional legal association. AIPLA is not a law firm. As a professional legal association, AIPLA has individual lawyers as members. The fact that a lawyer is a member of AIPLA does not mean or imply that the lawyer is affiliated with any other AIPLA member for the practice of law. Some members are omitted from this directory by request. Contacting an AIPLA member does not establish an attorney-client relationship between you and the AIPLA member. Consequently, you should not convey any confidential information to an AIPLA member until you and the AIPLA member have established an attorney-client relationship.
The listing of any area of practice by an AIPLA member does not indicate any certification or expertise therein, nor does it represent the quality of legal services to be performed. It is merely an indication by the member of an area or areas in which he or she practices. Membership in AIPLA, as well as membership on an AIPLA Committee does not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or an expert in a field of law. AIPLA membership does not indicate anything about the quality or competency of any lawyer.
The information in this directory is provided by our members. AIPLA does not warrant the accuracy or validity of the information, and hereby disclaims any liability to any person for any loss or damage caused by errors or omissions in this directory.
AIPLA offers no legal advice, recommendations, mediation or counseling under any circumstance.
