Two words:

Experience // Results

McCabe//Ali focuses on representing the legal needs of Intellectual Property practitioners and Securities industry licensed professionals. We advise and defend patent and trademark attorneys and agents from some of the largest and most sophisticated IP and General Practice law firms and corporations in dealing with often very high-stakes USPTO and State Bar ethics investigations, including disciplinary trials and appeals.

Our Professionals

Currently, Michael McCabe serves as the Chairman of the ABA Ethics Committee. Emil Ali is also the Vice-Chair of the same Committee. 

As both practicing intellectual property attorneys and licensed patent attorneys themselves, Michael E. McCabe Jr. and Emil Ali share a unique and unrivaled insight into the crossroads of IP law subject matter and procedures and the ethics rules governing attorneys and agents who appear before the USPTO. Michael and Emil have represented hundreds of Intellectual Property Practitioners in OED Ethics Investigations and USPTO Disciplinary Trials and Appeals. We are second to none in the breadth and depth of our experience before the OED. And the results are staggering—the overwhelming majority of our clients avoid disciplinary sanctions or the loss of their right to practice their profession.

Michael McCabe and Emil Ali have helped scores of their clients successfully navigate the OED investigation and disciplinary process, as well as SEC regulatory matters.

Licensed professionals who face the possible loss of their ability to practice in their chosen profession call McCabe//Ali to protect and defend their most valuable commodity.

An Empathetic & Approachable Method

Michael and Emil also bring a great deal of empathy and touch-based on their many years counseling legal and securities professionals. A USPTO Ethics Investigation or Disciplinary Complaint can be a distracting, if not terrifying, ordeal.
