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.

IP Enforcement and Dispute Resolution
Intellectual property disputes can be mission-critical or mission-crippling, whether in the form of litigation or as the result of damage to your brand name or loss in sales. When your trademarks, copyrights, patents or trade secrets are infringed, or you are accused of infringing the rights of others, we pursue the most efficient avenue that aligns with your business goals –be that through aggressive litigation to protect your interests and vindicate your rights, taking action at the United States Patent and Trademark Office or overseas IP- granting authority, or via creative, non-litigated resolutions.
We litigate in federal and state trial and appellate courts, and in administrative proceedings throughout the country, including at the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, and the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. We also defend and challenge the validity of issued patents in post- grant proceedings at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, such as inter partes reviews, covered business method reviews, post-grant reviews and ex parte reexaminations.
A Focus on Market Potential
For those looking to realize the full market potential of their intellectual property assets, we counsel on strategies that allow the business to enter new markets confidently, online and offline, to exploit licensing and co-branding opportunities, and leverage intellectual property assets to maximize value.
IP in the Virtual Marketplace
We advise on website design protection, development and hosting agreements, terms and conditions of use statements, disclaimer statements, privacy policies, domain name registration and matters relating to the protection and assignment of domain names. We also draft, review and negotiate software license and development agreements and advise on source and object code escrow arrangements.
