You might call Kurt L. Grossman's legal career "super-charged."

As a partner at Wood, Herron & Evans LLP, Grossman has concentrated his intellectual property (IP) practice in the electrical, biomedical device and software fields. The attorney prides himself on delivering "a careful focus on the client's business needs with an understanding of the full impact of IP legal decisions on those business needs."

Admitted to the Ohio Bar in 1983 and the District of Columbia Bar two years previous, Grossman is also registered to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

After serving as technical advisor to Judge Helen W. Nies of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, Grossman joined the firm of Wood, Herron & Evans in 1983. He is now involved in all aspects of the firm's intellectual property practice, including prosecution, litigation, licensing and client counseling.

Grossman is well-suited to his firm's expertise. For some 140 years, Wood, Herron & Evans LLP has focused on intellectual property law and IP assets: Acquisition, development, transferring, licensing and defending patents and trademarks. Clients include trade associations, universities, foundations, businesses and individuals. The IP approach of the firm is broadbased: Last year, for instance, the firm sponsored the 2006 InventorFest, a community service program of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County in association with Wright State University, drawing more than 5,000 inventors and would-be inventors.

Grossman himself graduated cum laude with a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering from the University of Cincinnati in 1978. He went on to earn a Juris Doctor degree from The National Law Center at George Washington University, graduating with honors in 1981.

Among his accomplishments, Grossman is listed in the Intellectual Property section of "The Best Lawyers in America." He lives in Symmes Township with his wife Joanne and son Jonathan.

Grossman is an active member of the American, Ohio and Cincinnati Bar Associations, the American and Cincinnati Intellectual Property Law Associations, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers. Grossman also serves as an arbitrator for the Hamilton County Courts.
