Intellectual Property Protection & Licensing

One of the most important assets a firm has is its intellectual property. A failure to protect IP assets will lead to lost revenue. IP protection can be achieved in a variety of ways including governmental registration, contractual arrangements, and regulatory enforcement. In addition to using IP assets internally to generate revenue, IP licensing and franchise relationships are additional methods to earn a return on a firm's IP. It is also essential when contemplating expansion into new markets, and particularly foreign markets, to protect IP assets prior to entering that market. Legal counsel must not only be familiar with the ways a firm's IP assets can be protected in a specified market, but must also understand and be able to assist in formulating that firm's IP strategy.

Legal services include counseling and representation regarding the following:

●    Trademark protection and federal registration
●    International Madrid Protocol trademark registration
●    Copyright protection and federal registration
●    U.S. Customs Service trademark & copyright recordation
●    Trade secret agreements
●    Patent, trademark & copyright licensing
●    Franchising
●    IP strategic planning
