Mona Qureshi-Hart established Hart IP with her late husband and business partner, Brian Hart, in February 2010, adding to his patent background her strengths in federal and international trademark, copyright, and licensing law as well as Internet domain name and ICANN-related matters.

By closely working with marketing and research and development departments of clients, Ms. Hart has assisted clients with forward-thinking intellectual property strategies to best position clients in our increasingly flat global marketplace. Ms. Hart views her role as an innovation culture creator and strategist, working with clients to develop and understand intellectual property policies while proactively identifying and projecting potential for intellectual property protection and monetization to bring value to the business.

Industries in which Ms. Hart has advised include fashion, apparel, and accessories; food and beverage; publishing; sporting and outdoor goods; fitness; non-profits; computer software and hardware; university research and development; telecommunications; Internet-based services; construction; agriculture; energy; and retail and wholesale.
