Protecting Your Intellectual Property

Intellectual property can be one of the biggest assets for a business. A unique name, logo, and products are worthy of protection, and protection may be easier than you think. We have experience helping businesses create a priority list for which assets should be protected and when registration is appropriate and urgent. Our clients rely on us to recommend the correct form of protecting their intellectual property assets and defending their intellectual property rights.




  •  Ensuring the name you have selected for your business, your trademarks, and your service marks are ones that are protectible and that you can use without conflicting with others' names
  •  Protecting and registering your trademark to minimize the risk of others adopting and using a mark similar to yours
  •  Protecting your artistic works that you have created
  •  Protecting your confidential information, including recipes and customer lists, from theft from employees and others
  •  Developing non-disclosure agreements to use with suppliers and manufacturers
  •  Developing license agreements for others to use your trademarks and copyrighted works
  •  Technology transfer agreements
  •  Policing uses of your rights by others
  •  Domain name dispute
  •  Preparation of detailed analyses and legal opinions regarding client and third party intellectual property rights
  •  Prosecution of trademark and copyright applications before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the U.S. Copyright Office, and with state governmental agencies
  •  Trademark portfolio management
  •  Defending your rights to use your intellectual property when threatened by others, through negotiation, and, where necessary, through litigation or other dispute procedures in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and domain name registrars.
