Needle & Rosenberg P.C., an Atlanta-based law firm focused on intellectual property law, today announces that six of its attorneys have been recognized as “Georgia Super Lawyers?.” The Needle & Rosenberg lawyers on this year's list are: Jeffrey H. Brickman, Gregory J. Kirsch, William H. Needle, Lawrence K. Nodine, David G. Perryman and Sumner C. Rosenberg.

Further, two of the six Needle & Rosenberg attorneys named also made the Top 100 Georgia Super Lawyers list. Bill Needle has made the Top 100 list for each of the last four years, since the inception of Georgia Super Lawyers in 2004, and was joined this year by his colleague Larry Nodine. Like Needle and Nodine, Perryman and Rosenberg have made the Georgia Super Lawyers list four-years running, while Kirsch has been listed for three years.

- Jeffrey H. Brickman practices both intellectual property litigation and criminal defense. He served as the District Attorney of DeKalb County of Atlanta, Georgia prior to joining Needle & Rosenberg.

- Gregory J. Kirsch leads the firm's software, electronics and communications technology patent practice. He serves as patent counsel to numerous technology and Internet companies, ranging from large multinational corporations to small start-ups.

- William H. Needle is the founder of Needle & Rosenberg P.C., and he has practiced patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret law exclusively over his entire 36-year career.

- Lawrence K. Nodine is the managing shareholder of the firm and practices in intellectual property litigation and counseling, leading the firm’s litigation practice. For more than twenty years, Larry has served as lead counsel on a wide variety of cases involving trademarks, copyrights and patents.

- David G. Perryman practices biotech law and focuses on helping clients position their intellectual property in a manner consistent with their business goals so that costs are avoided and value is found or created. He currently serves on the board of directors for several biotechnology companies.

- Sumner C. Rosenberg provides patent prosecution, counseling, licensing and litigation legal services, focused on the computer software and hardware industries. In addition, he leads the firm’s trademark practice.
Super Lawyers names the top five percent of Georgia's attorneys in 60 practice areas as chosen by their peers and through the independent research of Law & Politics, a legal industry publisher. The 2007 Georgia Super Lawyers is based on the survey of more than 23,000 attorneys from across the state.

Needle & Rosenberg P.C., an Atlanta-based law firm focused on intellectual property law, today announces that it has promoted Kean J. DeCarlo, J.D., M.B.A., to Shareholder. DeCarlo, who was previously an Officer at the firm, leads the firm’s mechanical patent and medical device practice groups. Engaged exclusively in copyright, trademark and patent matters, DeCarlo focuses on helping clients manage their intellectual property in a manner consistent with their strengths and weaknesses, potential market value and business strategy within the context of the clients’ competitive landscape.

DeCarlo is an adjunct professor of intellectual property law at Georgia State University College of Law. Before joining Needle & Rosenberg, he worked as a domestic and international commercial pilot for Delta Air Lines and as a fighter pilot with the United States Air Force.

DeCarlo is a registered patent attorney and a member of the State Bar of Georgia where he serves on the executive committee of the Georgia Technology Law Section. He is also active in the American Intellectual Property Law Association, Copyright Society of the U.S.A. and Southeast Medical Device Association.
