Attorney Steve Martin

Protecting Your Intellectual Property—Contact Altman & Martin Today

I am attorney Steven K. Martin, and have been a patent and trademark attorney since 1994. With the retirement of my partner, Gerald Altman, I am now the sole proprietor of our firm, which has served New England for more than fifty years. Today, our firm represents a wide range of clients interested in protecting their inventions with patents and their trademarks with trademark registrations.

Whether you are starting a new company to exploit your invention or you want to protect a trademark for a business that has been around for decades, we will take all the necessary steps to secure your intellectual property. Helping clients with intellectual property concerns and solutions, and providing long-term intellectual property counsel is what we do.

Serving as Co-Counsel

We also serve as co-counsel to law firms involved in patent and trademark litigation. Completely dedicated to patent and trademark law, we can provide you with the substantive research and arguments you need to deliver the best representation.

Intellectual Property Law

Our firm focuses on trademarks and patents. We will take a look at your situation, help you determine the kind of protection you need, and take action to make sure you get the protection for your intellectual property that you are entitled to. From tech start-ups to trades, we work with a wide range of businesses and individuals in the greater Boston area.
