Richard Lehv is partner in the law firm of Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu, where, as a member of the litigation department, he handles trial and appellate litigation involving trademark, copyright, and trade dress infringement, comparative advertising and false advertising. In addition to cases in the federal courts, he regularly litigates before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board in the United States Patent and Trademark Office. He has significant experience using consumer surveys in litigation as evidence of advertising messages, likelihood of confusion, and "secondary meaning."

He received his B.A. degree (magna cum laude, with honors in history) from Union College in 1969, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He is a 1972 graduate of the Columbia University School of Law, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar. He has been a Trustee and Member of the Executive Committee of the Copyright Society of the USA, and served on the Federal Legislation Committee of the International Trademark Association.

Lehv taught Trademark Law at Brooklyn Law School from 1994 to 2003, and teaches a seminar at Columbia Law School on Trademark and Copyright Litigation.
