GPC began with Alexander I. Poltorak, a Russian physicist who emigrated to the United States in 1982. Poltorak was drawn to intellectual property law after teaching biomathematics at Cornell University and owning his own computer company. In 1989 he founded GPC, where he now serves as chairman and chief executive officer. He is joined in management of the company by Paul J. Lerner, senior vice president and general counsel.
