Our lawyers assist clients in maximizing return on their investment in intellectual capital by preparing and prosecuting patent applications, obtaining copyright and trademark registrations, negotiating license agreements, counseling on mergers and acquisitions, and enforcing intellectual property rights against infringers. We work closely with business executives to craft and implement business solutions in markets domestically, as well as in Central and South America, Canada, Asia and Europe. We assist clients in implementing intellectual property management programs so that research and development expenditures which result in important innovations are protected from competitors. In addition to identifying ways to protect intellectual property assets, we advise clients on their exploitation through commercial transactions, including licensing in/licensing out, joint development agreements, outsourcing agreements, joint ventures, and strategic alliances. We also assist clients in negotiating non-competition, confidentiality, employment, consulting, and merger/acquisition agreements.
Protecting our clients’ intellectual property rights from infringement, misappropriation, dilution, and counterfeiting is our top priority. We have lawyers who are trained in technology, as well as lawyers who are experts at explaining complex legal concepts in simple terms understandable by jurors without technical training. Our long standing reputation for the ability and the willingness to try cases enhances our ability to achieve negotiated resolutions. Our lawyers work closely with our clients to develop and execute strategies to obtain business objectives, whether those involve obtaining an injunction against a competitor, obtaining a monetary award, licensing technology, designing around a patent, or obtaining a declaratory judgment that a competitor’s patent is invalid. Where appropriate, we achieve our clients’ objectives through creative use of alternative dispute resolution techniques, such as negotiated settlements, mediations, arbitrations, or tactical summary judgments.
