Attorney Greg Sitrick, Intellectual Property Law & Legal Services

Specializing in IP Litigation and IP Rights

Greg Sitrick leads Messner Reeves’ national intellectual property group from the firm’s Phoenix, Arizona office.

Greg focuses his practice primarily on IP litigation but still assists clients with all aspects of intellectual property-related rights. Greg has an established reputation for developing creative solutions so that his clients can obtain, license, protect, and enforce their intellectual property rights, and there are plenty of reported statistics to back it up.

Intellectual Property in Entrepreneurship

Greg’s experiences allow him to counsel on a variety of issues from small nominal matters to large bet-the-company type matters, with clients ranging from barely funded start-ups to international multi-billion-dollar corporations. His clients see him as a business partner and voted him a BTI client all-star in 2014 and again in 2019. He has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America® every year since 2018 for IP Litigation.

Intellectual Property in Business

At a high level, Greg is an intellectual property attorney focused on being both a businessman as well as a legal advisor for his clients. He is a named inventor on a patent himself and has a passion for protecting inventors’ intellectual property and helping them utilize IP property as an asset. On the business side, he helps clients prioritize their needs and figure out an overall game plan for their IP, rather than simply covering the legal aspects of IP prosecution and enforcement. Greg counsels his clients on what to accomplish first, what to hold back for the time being, how to allocate resources, and how to build IP plans for the long term. Greg is an equally reliable resource on the legal side, particularly when clients need to litigate.

Additional Information

Before attending law school, Greg earned a degree in Electrical Engineering and then worked for Intelligent Resources Integrated Systems, U.S. Robotics/3COM, and MPC Products Corporation. He has hands-on experience with video technology  ncluding green-screen technologies and MPEG authoring technologies, communications technology including modems and communication devices, and aeronautical/aerospace engineering technologies such as components and systems for fighter jets, space shuttles, commercial aircraft, military helicopters, tanks, and GPS-guided bombs.
