Overview

Mr. Cummings is a partner in our New York office where he focuses his practice on patent law.  He is an experienced and skillful patent law attorney who understands and appreciates the importance of patents for commercial success. Patents are valuable assets, and he is committed to protecting them for our clients.

He is admitted to practice law in New York and New Jersey and is registered to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and is authorized to represent clients anywhere in the world.  Mr. Cummings works with domestic and international clients across all industries.

Patent law is national in scope and is not state or county regulated. By its very nature, it encompasses the entire country, which is important in that the protection a client is seeking for their invention will also be national in scope. Therefore, a patent law attorney does not need to be admitted to practice law in the same state as the individual or business entity that is seeking patent law services.
