Using their legal skills and business experience, our Intellectual Property Practice Group will partner with you to generate the greatest value from your IP assets in every aspect of your business—from your technology to your branding and your internet content. We help you grow your IP portfolio efficiently by focusing attention and resources on the most valuable IP assets. We advocate for you in negotiating your purchase, sale, or license of IP rights. If you find yourself in an IP dispute, you will find no one who can provide a more focused, sensible strategy or more effective advocacy.
The first step in any IP strategy is to recognize what creative ideas (or “intellectual capital”) drive your success. Technological innovation? Unique branding? Market positioning? Our IP Team helps you identify ways to protect and defend the ideas that make your business succeed and grow. We counsel clients not to grow big portfolios, but to allocate resources and efforts efficiently—to obtain stronger protection for the IP that matters and to avoid wasting money on nonessential IP.
Our experienced transactional IP attorneys can help you negotiate effectively when licensing, buying, or selling IP assets. In addition, our IP litigators add value to the team by trouble-shooting potential IP disputes that may arise in these transactions. We also perform IP analyses, audits, freedom to operate opinions, and other counseling to help you navigate complex IP issues.
If you find yourself in an IP dispute, you will find no stronger or more reliable advocates. Our IP litigators are trial lawyers, who prepare for trial from the outset. We develop a focused and clear strategy on what evidence and arguments will win at trial. We then collect the evidence we need and do not bog down in unnecessary discovery or pointless procedural battles. Our goal is not to merely achieve a legal victory but to deploy a strategy for achieving a business victory as quickly and efficiently as possible.
