Tom Zuber specializes in managing high-stakes intellectual property matters. With his brother Jeff Zuber, Mr. Zuber founded Zuber & Zuber, now Zuber Lawler & Del Duca, in 2003 as a 3rd-year associate with no clients. As Managing Partner, Mr. Zuber has managed Zuber Lawler & Del Duca’s growth from 2 attorneys working out of a Los Angeles domestic kitchen to over 25 attorneys working in 11 different languages representing clients throughout the world from offices in Los Angeles, New York City and San Francisco. Zuber Lawler & Del Duca currently represents nine of the Fortune 100 companies, and iconic government entities such as the FDIC.
Legal services are often considered a necessary evil—friction slowing down the gears of commerce. Our view is more constructive. We are our clients' partners, and our legal services are a component in the creation of their widgets and services. We are in the business of protecting, enforcing and exploiting the ideas from which our clients' innovations grow."

Mr. Zuber also created and serves as CEO of LawLoop, the most advanced client, matter and document management system in the world. As Zuber Lawler & Del Duca’s Managing Partner, Mr. Zuber became increasingly frustrated with the choices (and prices) of legal industry software applications. He decided to create something better from the ground up, namely a seamlessly integrated cloud computing portal for lawyers. LawLoop is the result, and he now wants to share that result with the world. Mr. Zuber’s inventions relating to LawLoop.com have resulted in over 15 patents and patents pending, with more on the way.
Mr. Zuber actively engages in pro bono work through Zuber Lawler & Del Duca, and in other philanthropic causes outside the office. For instance, he performs free legal work for The World Justice Project, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit organization engaged in projects to advance the rule of law around the world. In addition to his pro bono legal work, during his spare time, he sits on the Regional Board of Directors of UNICEF, the world’s leading advocate for children.
Prior to founding Zuber Lawler & Del Duca, Mr. Zuber practiced in the Intellectual Property Department of the New York City office of White & Case LLP, and then in the Intellectual Property Department of the Los Angeles office of O’Melveny & Myers LLP.
