Intellectual Property

Ideas Matter

Whether copyrighting creative works, protecting ideas and inventions, or drafting airtight non-disclosure agreements, our intellectual property group effectively shields original thinking at every level.

We protect and enforce our clients’ rights in their intellectual property through copyright, trademark, trade dress and patent registration. We stand ready to litigate cases of infringement, false advertising, counterfeiting, deceptive trade practices, misappropriation, and other actions that threaten our clients’ intellectual property. We have a wealth of experience in counseling, acquisition and transfer, negotiating licensing agreements, trademark portfolio management, and synergistic and strategic planning. We also help our clients manage their employment exposure by providing employment and non-disclosure contracts to protect confidentiality and intellectual property in-house.
