Intellectual Property

Domestic and international protection of trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, trade dress,  rights of publicity and privacy, enforcement, licensing and e-commerce.

The Firm is experienced in securing the value of the intellectual property created and acquired by its clients in the United States and around the world. Working on its own and in tandem with our other practice groups, our clients routinely rely on our Intellectual Property Practice Group for a broad range of intellectual property needs, including drafting and negotiating brand name licenses, software and non-disclosure agreements; recovering domain names from cybersquatters; and stopping misappropriation of their works.

We focus on the domestic and international protection of trademarks, trade secrets, trade dress under the Lanham Act and other laws and copyrights, rights of publicity and privacy. Additionally, we regularly represent clients in litigation and adversarial proceedings.  Click on the following links to learn more about the Firm's litigation and privacy capabilities.

We assist our clients in evaluating intellectual property assets that they are acquiring or selling. We also protect them by identifying and assessing potential liabilities in a variety of transactions, including mergers and acquisitions and asset-based financing. Integral to the firm's financing activities, our intellectual property lawyers conduct a due diligence review of the intellectual property portfolio. When we identify a potential obstacle during our intellectual property due diligence, we work closely with the parties to find a solution.
