About Us

In the beginning, we knew it would be ALL IP. ALL THE TIME, from our services offered, to our client relationships. We have always been working hard to protect and enforce your domestic and foreign intellectual property rights.

From then onward, Heslin Rothenberg Farley & Mesiti (HRFM) has grown into the largest Intellectual Property (IP) law firm in Upstate New York. With two offices in Albany and Rochester New York we offer our services all over the country and internationally.  Founded in 1970 by Mr. Robert E.

The firm’s patent professionals have expertise in numerous technical disciplines, including physics, electrical engineering, computer science, chemistry, pharmaceuticals, mechanical engineering, cleantech, business methods, nanotechnology, biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Our litigation team has had success protecting our client’s interests in courts throughout the country.

Our clients are composed of start-ups to Fortune 100 companies including domestic and foreign corporations, universities, government agencies, research centers, software companies, designers, growth companies focused on emerging technologies, venture capital firms, and individual inventors.
