Patent boutique Shalev, Jencmen & Co was founded just a few years ago and has already built up a client base of well-known, prolific patent filers, thanks in part to the industry experience of its founding partners, and the team's proven ability to fully develop its clients' patent portfolios. Jointly headed by Avi Jencmen and Asaf Shalev, (both of whom have experience practicing at some of Israel's most prominent IP firms), the practice group specialises broadly in software-related IP, and has particular expertise in the defence and cyber security, autonomous vehicles, e-commerce, and medical devices sectors. In addition to its Israel-focused work, the team also employs multiple US-qualified patent agents, and is thus able to prosecute patent applications before the Israeli Patent Office as well as the USPTO. Of particular note in 2019, the firm handled over half of new patent filings made by Elbit Systems - one of Israel's top-ten patent filers according to the Israeli Patent Office.

We are very pleased with the services provided by the firm.  I find Avi and Asaf speak my language, and at the same time, they demonstrate accurate and valuable out-of-the-box thinking about the patenting process so that we will get the best possible protection.

Avi and Asaf are both extremely tech-savvy. They are also thorough, knowledgeable, and they have the ability to explain everything in a language we all understand. They have great interpersonal skills, which we highly value.

Very knowledgeable in IT and IP. Rapidly developing practice with agile capabilities. A good perception of the “big picture” which in IT exceeds that of classic patent protection and includes soft IP such as open source code.

We have worked with Shalev Jencmen’s team for almost a year now, and we can safely say that this is one of the most promising patent firms we ever encountered with.

Asaf Shalev is a very experienced patent attorney, understands the software world in a very high level, and he can advise us not just on the patents niche but on the whole IP strategy of the company.’

‘Avi Jencmen brings an even more unique approach due to the fact that for a decade he was a client himself, working in a large company. Therefore, he knows what the client needs and what he is looking for, and can provide very effective solutions.
