We work to protect clients’ intellectual property by advising on patent, copyright and trademark availability, and assist throughout the domestic and international registration processes. We prosecute violators when clients seek to prevent patent, copyright or trademark infringement, and defend clients in proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), and in state and federal courts. We advise both licensees and licensors on all aspects of licensing agreements.
