About The Law Offices Of LISA & LESKO
High-Performance Patent Law
The Law Offices of Lisa & Lesko is a patent law firm with the skill, experience, and resources proven to succeed in the highly-specialized patent licensing and enforcement business. The Law Offices of Lisa & Lesko is unique in that our partners have a long history of successful contingent fee patent enforcement programs, including multiple highly lucrative, industry-wide enforcement programs throughout the last 35 years.
The partners at the Law Offices of Lisa & Lesko, LLC have been through the licensing process thousands of times, and we apply that skill and knowledge in representing and advising our clients.
In order to be taken seriously in a licensing matter, a client must be represented by counsel that has high credibility, in-depth knowledge of the patents at issue, and a track record of addressing issues in good faith and resolving disputes. Perhaps most importantly, counsel must have the proven litigation skills to “back up” the inquiry with force if necessary. Key in the licensing process is the ability to work in good faith with opposing counsel to devise a creative solution to a business issue.
We approach patent prosecution with an understanding of enforcement.
In view of our firm’s extensive enforcement experience, the registered patent attorneys at our firm approach patent prosecution from the perspective of counsel who has seen defenses from opposing counsel and evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of patents hundreds of times. We consider those potential defenses early in the procurement process in order to draft strong patents and claims and maximize value for our clients.
Defending a patent suit is challenging, and you need experienced counsel.
Based on our extensive experience representing patent plaintiffs, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Lisa & Lesko, LLC possess the skills necessary to identify, evaluate, and where appropriate, establish the defenses available to patent defendants. Because we understand how to work efficiently, the firm is uniquely positioned to quickly and cost-effectively achieve successful resolution for defendants.
Trade secrets can be a critical component of a company's intellectual property portfolio.
We understand how to represent clients on both sides of a trade secret dispute, and from our patent work, we understand complex technological systems and processes. Our extensive litigation experience ensures clients that they will be represented by a determined and creative legal team with the know-how to efficiently and competently represent them through a judgment or resolution.
The attorneys at the Law Offices of Lisa & Lesko have amicably resolved over 1,000 disputes for both plaintiffs and defendants.
We understand how to fairly and objectively evaluate matters and opposing viewpoints, and to assist parties with reaching a reasonable settlement on fair and equitable terms.

Steve, Michelle, and Justin recognize that knowledge is power and they use it to their advantage. They are tough and they are creative. I wanted a partnership when I hired their firm and that is exactly what I got. As difficult as it is to be service-oriented in this business, Steve and his entire team were extremely thorough in their communication about my case, quickly and efficiently made recommendations that were on the mark without fail, and they were responsive in a manner that I could understand and be involved in when it was time to make a decision. Most of all, they are three of the most genuine and honest people you will ever hope to meet.

Steve Lisa and Justin Lesko have both helped me navigate the process of filing my first provisional patent. As a novice patentee, they spent ample time with me; as I gained greater understanding of the entire patent process.

As I continue to build my business and promote my product as "patent pending", I am at ease knowing that my legal rights are properly represented. Aside from feeling well advised, they have made every step of the process rewarding, easy, and pleasant. In the beginning, I was initially seeking a service...
