Intellectual Property Cannabis Lawyer Neil K. Juneja

Neil Juneja is an intellectual property lawyer based in Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon. He is the founder and managing partner at the Gleam Law firm. His impeccable track record and years of cannabis law experience navigating the complexities of patents, trademarks, and copyrights is what helps Gleam Law stand out from the competition.

Early in his career, Neil became dissatisfied with the often-overwhelming pretentiousness in the legal field. At other firms, clients are billed by the minute, treated like just another number, and too often waste valuable time and money on sub-par intellectual property law solutions that leave them exposed and vulnerable to lawsuits. Neil wanted to create something different – so he did.

For Neil, being a lawyer is about supporting people and their dreams. Whether it is business, innovation, or art, helping passionate people achieve their goals is what drives him to be the best cannabis lawyer he can be. He brings a remarkable level of genuine care and humanity that you don’t often find in a law office.

Neil represents clients in the cannabis industry. Neil has successfully filed over 400 cannabis trademarks and patent applications. He also represents clients worldwide with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

With over 20 years experience in theatrical lighting, entertainment, and tech industries, Neil gained much of his expertise working in these industries. Neil learned from the mistakes of others during the rise and fall of the dot com bubble. He learned the best ways to help his clients successfully file legally protectable assets.

Neil has a unique ability to see through complex cannabis legislative issues and come up with concrete and enforceable strategies to help protect his clients’ most valuable assets: their brands, inventions, and other original artistic works.

Neil is a sought-after speaker and trademark law instructor. He is also a member of the Washington Bar, the Federal Bar of Washington, and the United States Patent Bar.
