Innovators Legal Merges with JMIN, Expanding Our Team of Professionals and Enhancing Our Client Service Offerings

July 31, 2023

We are pleased to announce that Innovators Legal has combined with Johnson, Marcou, Isaacs, & Nix, effective July 31, 2023. The merger brings together two accomplished and highly respected law firms, each with its own reputation for excellence. 

Operating under the JMIN name, our expanded team will continue to deliver exceptional client service and provide clients in the U.S. and internationally with strategic counsel in intellectual property and corporate matters. 

Innovators Legal was founded in 2020 by new JMIN senior partner John Sears, a former faculty member in chemistry at Georgia Tech. John has concentrated his practice on early-stage technology commercialization for more than a decade, and under his leadership, Innovators Legal grew rapidly by forging long-lasting client relationships and designing creative solutions to meet their unique needs. 

“We have long been impressed by the Innovators Legal team’s deep technical backgrounds and industry expertise, which complement our team’s knowledge and capabilities,” said JMIN principal Brent Nix. “They have extensive experience advising venture capital firms and early-stage companies, and the addition of their corporate and business practice enhances our breadth and depth of service.” 

“People at JMIN hail from some large and prominent law firms and have counseled industry-leading clients in a wide variety of technologies,” said Dr. Sears. “We are excited about what this combination will mean for our clients and the extension of our group.” 

Integrating the Innovators Legal team gives JMIN a larger footprint in the market segments we serve. With deeper resources and a broader network, the firm offers enhanced value to existing clients and an attractive option for future clients seeking strategic IP representation and corporate counsel.

We are delighted to welcome our new colleagues and invite you to learn more about them:
