Intellectual Property

Your brand. Your reputation. Your inventions and creative works. Our experienced intellectual property attorneys protect and enhance these critical business assets by securing and leveraging patents, trademarks and copyrights, managing negotiations when licensing and other opportunities arise, and resolving disputes.

As IP assets have become increasingly important in today’s web-based, technology-driven world, we help emerging tech and media companies, established enterprises and creative individuals successfully and profitably navigate the marketplace.

Harnessing IP as a Competitive Advantage
Establishing a strong brand is central to business success. Selecting protectable trademarks, service marks and trade names to represent your business and your products and services is a critical step in creating that strong brand. We advise on mark selection, conduct clearance searches, and suggest creative options and alternatives. Once a mark or trade name is selected, we register and maintain them over the lives of the marks. And, we can help you monitor competitors to ensure your rights remain protected, deter potential infringement, and enhance the value of the goodwill and name recognition associated with your IP assets.

For creative works, we assist in securing copyright protection for original writings, music, art, and other copyrightable works – protection that is imperative in the digital and artistic marketplaces and to the pursuit of infringers in court.

Where patent protection is prudent, we procure, protect and enforce the rights to innovative technology. We not only bring extensive experience to the process of applying for and obtaining patent rights in the United States and abroad, we are also well-versed developing strategies for acquiring patent rights and building portfolios that support and strengthen your business plans and goals.
