General Patent Celebrates 25 Years
Serving the Innovation Community

Founded in 1987, General Patent Corporation celebrates its 25th Anniversary in 2012.  For a quarter of a century, General Patent has provided patent licensing and enforcement services, patent brokerage, and IP advisory services to inventors, businesses, universities and other organizations. We’ve worked with dozens of law firms, represented scores of patent holders, and generated hundreds of licenses and settlements over the past 25 years.

We refined and perfected a contingency patent enforcement business model that many have tried to duplicate. Our unique Suite of Services includes value-added benefits that no other organization offers! We are proud to be the leading patent licensing and enforcement firm in the world.

We will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary at a series of events throughout the year. Please check back at our website for news of these events throughout 2012.


General Patent Corporation

General Patent Corporation (GPC) is the leading contingency patent licensing and enforcement organization. Our U.S. headquarters is located in Suffern, New York, about 30 miles north of New York City. In addition to our office in Hong Kong, we maintain offices in Toronto (Canada) and London (United Kingdom) to serve inventors, businesses, universities and other entities in Canada and Europe that hold U.S. Patents.

Founded in 1987, GPC has an admirable record of producing attractive settlements for the patent owners we have represented.


For each patent enforcement client, General Patent establishes an LLC that becomes the plaintiff in any patent infringement litigation. We invite you to visit these LLC sites as each shows the settlements and licensees we’ve produced for our patent enforcement clients. The following is a representative cross section of patent enforcement clients.

If you believe your patent has been infringed, it costs you nothing to have General Patent consider your patent infringement claim. It begins when you complete an Enforcement Analysis Request.
