Michael R. Graham Announces Formation of Gnosis IP Law, P.C.
Winnetka, Illinois (February 4, 2014) Michael R. Graham, Esq., is pleased to announce the formation of Gnosis IP Law, P.C., and the launch of its website at  

Gnosis IP Law is dedicated to providing high quality trademark, copyright, Internet and domain name legal services to companies, organizations and individuals. Graham brings to the firm more than 25 years of dedicated non-patent intellectual property legal experience with two of Chicago’s largest intellectual property law firms. After establishing what is now an internationally-respected trademark practice group at Marshall, Gerstein & Borun LLP, where he was a partner, Graham believes that the challenges of doing business in the 21st century require a more nimble, tech-savvy, and client-centric approach to providing intellectual property legal services. Although experienced in numerous industries, Graham will focus special attention to startups, tech companies, and companies with online presences.

Gnosis IP Law will provide traditional intellectual property clearance, registration and protection services to companies in all industries. It offers clients specialized, individualized services to help them establish, commercialize and enforce their intellectual property in the fast-changing digital environment.   The firm will also provide a full range of arts, entertainment, music and publishing legal services. 

“Gnosis” means “knowledge” in Greek, and Graham is dedicating Gnosis IP Law to helping clients leverage their knowledge and creativity, empowering them to prosper in the 21st century’s Knowledge Economy through the wise online use of their intellectual property.  “Companies, no matter their size, can no longer view the Internet, social media or their online presence only as marketing tools,” notes Graham. “The Internet has become an international digital marketplace of products, ideas and reputation in which companies must actively create and communicate in order to be competitive. Artists, musicians, writers, and their publishers need to protect their creative works against infringement and misuse. Companies need informed legal representation based on seasoned knowledge of the Internet and online media to help them understand, adapt and apply quickly-changing legal principles and technological developments in their businesses. Gnosis IP Law is being created to fulfill these needs, to enable established businesses and start-ups, as well as creative individuals, to navigate and prosper in the expanding digital universe.”
