In our current knowledge-based economy, intellectual property is an extremely valuable business asset that must be protected and defended.
Our litigators represent clients in the defense of trademarks, which serve to identify your company’s products and services, and copyright, a form of protection provided to the authors of “original works of authorship” – including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, computer programs and certain other intellectual works.
A significant portion of our intellectual property defense work takes place at the intersection of intellectual property law and employment law – where we deal with disputes over trade secrets, confidentiality clauses and non-competition agreements. In this capacity, we work closely with lawyers in our employment law practice.
We represent clients in state and federal courts and before the appropriate regulatory agencies. When appropriate, we pursue alternatives to litigation.
