Identification, Protection, & Commercialization of IP
Intellectual property is an important asset to many businesses. The attorneys in our Intellectual Property & Technology group advise clients regarding issues that arise out of the identification, protection, and commercialization of intellectual property, including know-how and other trade secrets, patents, copyrights, trademarks, information technology, and data.
We assist our clients by identifying sources of intellectual property in the client’s operations and establishing programs to ensure that the client obtains rights to, and appropriately protects, valuable intellectual property developed with the client’s time and resources. Our attorneys have a great deal of experience in analyzing and assisting with the transfer of intellectual property in connection with business transactions, including mergers & acquisitions, sales transactions, financing transactions, joint ventures, and licensing arrangements. We also assist our Estate Planning attorneys in identifying, managing, transferring, and planning for intellectual property assets held by clients. In addition, we have substantial Litigation experience, pursuing infringement and other actions to enforce rights to intellectual property and in defending infringement claims.
