Yuri Eliezer was selected as a 2020 Super “Patent” Lawyer, and received an award given to 2.5% of attorneys. His recognition relates to his work in securing multi-million dollar patents for his clients – patents that have been tested through USPTO examination, re-examination and litigation. Some of the patents he has secured were tried all the way to multi-million dollar jury awards. Yuri also strives to use his first-hand knowledge of the legal industry to develop innovative methods to revolutionize and modernize the practice of law, and has been recognized as a pioneer in legal technology.
Yuri heads the Intellectual Property practice group at Founders Legal in Atlanta, Georgia. A practice he co-founded at the Atlanta Tech Village – the nation’s fourth largest incubator. He specializes in preparing, developing, and executing strategies for securing patents nationally and internationally. He focuses his work on developing IP portfolio of high value, and helps clients to licensing and acquisition deals to monetize on their IP rights. He has secured patents, negotiated and executed domestic and international IP deals in the Software, Internet/Telecom, Computer, Electrical, and Medical Device fields. His team also prosecutes patents in the Mechanical, Aerospace, Biotech, and Pharmaceutical industries.
A good portion of his practice also involves “Soft IP”, such as Trademarks, Copyrights, and Trade Secrets. He is supported by the Founders Legal Securities and Mergers & Acquisitions practice.
His degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering has helped him serve technology companies of all sizes including: various startups, Microsoft, Cisco, Cox, AT&T, General Electric, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Coca Cola.
After years of working as a patent attorney, Eliezer identified inefficiencies permeating today’s law firms that he sought to combat. Noting the inadequacy of current signature practices in law firms and applying his skills as an engineer and entrepreneur, Eliezer ventured to introduce a more efficient way of practicing law. This prompted Eliezer to co-found ClientSide, a company that strives to invent technology tailored to the specific needs of law firms.
Eliezer’s technological knowledge, entrepreneurial expertise, and nuanced perspective on technological innovation, has attracted national media coverage, of the likes of NPR, CNN, and The International Business Times. Eliezer also applies his wide-ranging experiences as an Advisor to the Atlanta Tech Village, where he provides guidance to a community of 120 startup companies.
