Trademark Lawyers | Copyright & IP Attorneys
We help businesses and individuals protect and monetize their IP rights.
Intellectual property is a major business asset. Like other business assets, intellectual property needs to be properly protected, managed, and, when necessary, enforced.
Our firm’s intellectual property services include trademark and copyright consultation and registration services; internet and e-commerce business issues; trademark, technology, and other licensing; general intellectual property counseling; and intellectual property litigation in the areas of trademarks and service marks, copyrights, unfair competition, domain name protection, and other know-how related litigation. We serve clients in three general ways: intellectual property protection through representation, intellectual property monetization, and intellectual property rights protection.
Intellectual Property Protection through Registration
When intellectual property is developed, one of the initial questions that should be addressed is how such property can best be protected. While some forms of intellectual property protection automatically attach when a work is “fixed” (such as when a story is written), often proper registration will be desirable in order to better protect intellectual property rights. With trademarks, service marks, and tradenames, registration will almost always be desirable in order to preserve uniqueness and to prevent others from developing similar marks.
For basic trademark and copyright consultation and registration, the firm offers a unique fixed fee structure. This low fixed fee structure delivers fundamental trademark and copyright needs to businesses of all sizes in a cost effective manner. You can find out Fixed Fees Schedule here.
Intellectual Property Monetization
The developers of many types of intellectual property – such as software – will want to license their technology as a core part of their business. We help companies develop license and other agreements to monetize intellectual property, and we represent licensees and other seeking to acquire the rights to use intellectual property.
Intellectual Property Rights Protection
Third parties sometimes violate the rights of intellectual property owners. Sometimes such violation is intentional; more often, it is likely unintentional.
We represent intellectual property owners in protecting their property against rights violation through demand and cease-and-desist letters and, if needed, litigation.
We would invite you to call us regarding any intellectual property matters that you may have.
