The firm’s Intellectual Property and Information Technology Groups are comprised of dozens of business-savvy attorneys practicing coast to coast. Deeply invested in our clients’ business and innovation goals, we partner with emerging companies and mature companies alike to realize the full potential of intellectual property and market portfolios in all stages of the business life cycle.
Our technology portfolio legal services are national in scale, yet local in presence. Local market presence translates to a deep understanding of market competition, state and local laws and regulations, and jurisdictional factors that affect business economics and legal outcomes. Deeply experienced in all facets of creating, growing and protecting a portfolio of intellectual property and innovation, we consider ourselves vigilant advocates and defenders of your ideas and mind-share. It is our goal to position you for profit whether you’re in it for the long haul or consider yourselves temporary guardians of your brand or market solutions.
We represent clients in all aspects of IP protection, from investigating, securing, maintaining, exploiting and transferring IP rights to resolving IP disputes through complex litigation or mediation. Because our IP attorneys typically are also involved in developing strategies for litigation, we bring that experience to the table in developing comprehensive offensive and defensive IP strategies. As IP becomes increasingly important to distinguish a company from its competitors, our big-picture approach allows us fiercely to protect our clients’ IP assets (e.g. patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, etc.). Our body of work in the IP field provides us with the insight and tools to handle all types of cases, large or small, complex or straightforward. We bring this depth, strategic vision, technical understanding and legal expertise to each of our clients.
Because intellectual property plays such a prominent role in today’s evolving business environment, our team of IP attorneys regularly advises our clients in all aspects of patent law, including patent-ability searches and opinions, right to use opinions, non-infringement and invalidity opinions, patent prosecution and maintenance, and preservation for prior use rights of unpatented inventions.
