Protecting Your Intellectual Property is More Important than Ever.

Intellectual Properties are valuable assets for any business so it’s not surprising that the number of Intellectual Property lawsuits is increasing each year, with the U.S. Supreme Court weighing in. There’s a lot riding on companies protecting their creative ideas, so we help our clients identify, develop, and protect their Intellectual Property, and manage their risk.

Our services and areas of expertise include:

Patents [+]

We advise clients on when to pursue patent protection to exclude others from using their innovations. Additionally, our in-house registered patent attorney oversees patent application filings with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Trade Secrets [+]

Many businesses’ competitive advantages derive from closely held trade secrets, so we advise clients on when to pursue trade secret protection. This protection is important because it prevents others from disclosing, acquiring, or using trade secrets without permission.

Trademarks [+]

A brand trademark – a word, phrase, or logo – is an invaluable business asset and needs to be safeguarded so we advise clients on best practices to protect their brand through trademarks. Our services also include filing trademark applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Copyrights [+]

Those involved in creative endeavors – dramatic, musical, audiovisual, poetry, novels, movies, architecture, and computer software – need to protect their original works. Our experts advise clients on obtaining copyrights, and file copyright applications on their behalf with the U.S. Copyright Office.

IP-Related Contracts [+]

From internal employment agreements to external agreements with partners and customers, we guide clients to make sure their contracts protect their Intellectual Property. Our services include advising clients on the licensing of patents, trade secrets, trademarks, and copyrights, as well as on the enforcement of IP rights. And to help our clients avoid infringing on the Intellectual Property of others, we inform them of best practices, and we respond to and defend them against IP infringement claims.

Data Security and Privacy [+]

Data security and privacy is a hot topic these days because a breach can be costly to a company’s reputation and bottom line. We advise clients on best practices for mitigating against violations in the first place, and the best course of action to respond should a data breach occur.
