Intellectual Property

Intellectual property (IP) rights can be one of an organization’s most valuable assets. However, too often these assets are under-protected and undefended. Obtaining successful outcomes for our clients is a three-part program:

  1. Education
  2. Protection
  3. Defense

Whether a patent, trademark, trade dress, trade secret, or copyright, the first step is to educate our client as to when the client needs to seek IP protection and the available alternatives. The second step is executing the right protection mechanism for the IP. The final step is monitoring and vigorously defending our client's IP rights.

  • Advise clients on patents, trademarks, trade dress, copyrights, trade secrets and unfair competition issues
  • Conduct IP audits to determine inventory and value of intellectual property
