The ownership and management of intellectual property (IP) is a very important and nuanced area of law. Our team of intellectual property professionals can help you manage your intellectual property in every aspect and help advise you on your rights and how to effectively maintain ownership of your invaluable ideas and works.
What Do IP Attorneys Do
Intellectual property attorneys help to ensure that you have complete rights to your intellectual property while also remaining in a strategic position to make intelligent decisions regarding this intellectual property.
Intellectual property law is made up of a few different areas of practice:
- Patent Law: Patents protect the rights to any type of new invention such as technology, process, or machine that is unique. Patent lawyers help to ensure that you have a unique idea and help to get your application through the USPTO.
- Trademark Law: Trademarks help to protect the branding surrounding a new business, invention, or idea. This can involve the business name, a certain slogan, and even designs and symbols related to your brand.
- Copyright Law: Copyrights deal with creative works and determine who can control and use a property.
- Licensing: Licensing involves allowing others to have temporary permission to use your intellectual property in a certain manner. Licenses can vary and depend on the idea or convention itself and how it is used or implemented.
How IP Attorneys Help Protect Your Unique Ideas
Intellectual property attorneys have a deep understanding of the process of securing intellectual property rights based on what your unique circumstances are. Our attorneys can help to advise you on how to properly manage your IP along with the proper actions that should be taken along the way. Additionally, they help to review and complete important legal documents pertaining to aforementioned aspects of the process including patent applications, trademarks, and licensing agreements.
Dealing with the USPTO can be a difficult thing to tackle if you aren’t familiar with the process. Working with an intellectual property attorney can understand the application process of IP management and understand your odds of approval.
Intellectual property often brings about licensing rights and the issue of transfer of ownership in the case of mergers and acquisitions. Having a professional intellectual property attorney on your side can help you make sound decisions during these critical negotiations.
