Two years ago, the Fairfax, Virginia-based intellectual property law firm Harrity & Harrity launched a program to help minority attorneys found their own IP firms. This month, the Minority Firm Incubator launched its first law firm: The Onyx IP Group, a three-attorney IP firm owned by former Harrity attorney James Bennin.

Bennin is an Orlando-based IP lawyer of 15 years; he worked at Harrity & Harrity for seven years after a two-year stint as an Alston & Bird associate. In 2016, he went in-house at Caterpillar Inc., and then went to the University of Central Florida in 2018 as one of two patent attorneys working for the 70,000-student university. Along the way, he stayed in touch with Harrity & Harrity founders John Harrity and Paul Harrity.
