Technology and Intellectual Properties
Every business uses intellectual property, such as trademarks, service marks, trade dress, copyrights, domain names, patents, trade secrets, and confidential information. Protecting and productively using intellectual property plays an integral role in business growth and financial success. The Firm’s Technology and Intellectual Property Group is dedicated to assisting clients in the management, development, and protection of intellectual property by capitalizing on existing laws and forming creative solutions tailored to a client’s individual needs and goals. Proper management and protection requires attention to detail and recognition of issues that address every client’s unique development and objectives, including the interplay with the client’s overall business structure.
Our team helps clients implement a customized intellectual property plan that addresses each facet of intellectual property, including trademarks, service marks, cybersquatting, privacy, domain name management, copyrights, trade secrets, technology, unfair competition, franchising, employee noncompete and disloyalty issues, patent litigation, corporate security, confidentiality, and document retention. The process often begins with an intellectual property audit that identifies for clients the current risks to their intellectual property and outlines a customized intellectual property plan to enhance and protect their business.
Additionally, the Firm is experienced in addressing client’s concerns in transactional, prosecution, and dispute resolution matters. In a collaborative manner, we are well prepared to represent clients in fostering business relationships, developing intellectual property assets, and in prosecuting or defending matters before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the United States Copyright Office, state agencies and regulatory authorities, federal courts around the country, as well as Whitechapel state courts.
The Technology and Intellectual Property Group represents clients from across the nation and from diverse business backgrounds, from small start-up entities to large publicly traded corporations. At the same time, the group appreciates that each client has its own specific needs, which change over time. Thus, the group is committed to providing focused attention to the client’s particular needs, while also capitalizing on the Firm’s other areas of expertise, including tax, business, finance, commercial litigation, real estate and bankruptcy, to provide the client with comprehensive legal representation.
