Areas of Practice

Intellectual Property


We work actively with our clients in all areas of the protection and enforcement of their intellectual property rights in their goods, services and products/processes and Internet and e-business pursuits. Our attorneys prosecute federal patents for inventions, prepare and prosecute domestic and foreign trademark and copyright applications, and litigate trademark, unfair competition, privacy and publicity, patent infringement and internet domain name disputes to protect our clients’ rights or defend claims against them. Another important facet of intellectual property practice is protection and enforcement through non-competition agreements with employees and non-disclosure or confidentiality agreements and policies to maintain, protect and secure our clients’ trade secrets and other proprietary information. Our intellectual property practice also includes interparte trademark proceedings, such as oppositions, cancellations, and prosecution appeals; preparation of trademark, trade dress and copyright infringement and clearance opinions; developing internal business procedures for the protection of intellectual property rights; preparing contracts and technology transfer agreements, including patent and trademark assignments, licenses and concurrent use, non-compete and confidentiality agreements.
