Attorney Profile

Steve Steger is the founder of Steger IP, LLC, where he concentrates on all aspects of monetizing intellectual property through sales, assertion campaigns, and strategic IP counseling.  Prior to founding Steger IP, Mr. Steger was founder and managing partner of Global IP Law Group, where his practice was similar to his work with Steger IP.  Mr. Steger has a broad range of IP experience, having served as chief IP counsel at both multinational corporations and smaller start-up companies, as well as representing a broad range of clients while in private practice. His experience includes strategic IP counseling, patent monetization through sales and licensing, infringement litigation and patent and trademark prosecution and portfolio management.  Mr. Steger has sold many patent portfolios of various sizes, spearheaded the licensing of large patent portfolios, developed IP policies and procedures for both mature patent portfolios and start-up IP management, and built internal capabilities for management, licensing and prosecution of large patent portfolios.  Mr. Steger’s combination of in-house and major law firm experience gives him particular insight into what is important to a business from an IP perspective and how outside counsel can best add value to a corporate IP program.
