Intellectual Property / Trademark

We offer clients the ability to integrate and retool their current business operations or explore and develop new opportunities in the worldwide marketplace. As our clients rely increasingly on technology and the Internet, we expanded our Intellectual Property Law Practice Group to address the full range of issues that arise in technology and business transactions.

We provide services to our clients in the areas of trademark and business name acquisition and protection, including development and registration of trademark and business names; development and enforcement of non-compete agreements; and confidentiality, and nondisclosure agreements. Our attorneys are experienced in software development and licensing, including Internet commerce, web site development, web site hosting, and site linking and content licensing. We provide guidance in relation to intellectual property law and the workplace, such as internet use policies, invention rights, confidentiality agreements, and employee restrictive covenants. We also handle consultant (independent contractor) arrangements, copyright protection, and publisher agreements.

As the emphasis on technology has grown, so has our attention to the needs of clients in the computer and telecommunications field, as well as those who simply contract with vendors for computer services or who have developed relationships that require contract, license or related protections. Our Intellectual Property Practice Group draws on the firm’s extensive business experience to integrate the business needs of the client with the special requirements of technology and intellectual property by collaborating with the Business Transactions and Telecommunications Practice Groups.

The experience of our attorneys is critical to providing an expeditious response often required to fully protect the interest of our clients.
