Intellectual Property – Full Range of Legal Tools 

Intellectual property (IP) can be the most important asset of a business. IP is an umbrella term that defines a number of legal rights — patents, trademarks, copyrights, name and likeness rights, trade secrets, goodwill and know-how — that can provide a significant competitive advantage to your company over its competitors.

 Our IP attorneys are equipped to handle virtually every type of intellectual property and technology matter. While many firms provide some general IP services, our attorneys provide perhaps the broadest spectrum of intellectual property advice, procurement, and enforcement of IP rights in the country – from hard IP, such as patents and trade secrets, to soft IP, such as trademark and brand protection to copyright protection and exploitation.

Our IP team consists of attorneys with backgrounds in science and engineering to media and entertainment of all types. We have represented some of the largest national corporations down to medium-sized and small businesses, to start-ups.
