General Patent Corporation (GPC) is an intellectual property (IP) firm headquartered in Suffern, New York that provides patent licensing and enforcement on a contingency basis. GPC also provides IP advisory services including strategy, audit, IP valuation, management, patent portfolio mining, patent triage, patent licensing, assertive licensing, technology transfer, and other IP-related services.

According to Steven M. Cherry from the IEEE Spectrum, GPC is perhaps one of the oldest and most successful patent enforcement companies. The company remains privately held since 1987 when it was founded by Alexander Poltorak to assist inventors and IP owners in licensing and enforcing their IP rights. The company was incorporated in 1989.
