Our team delivers a range of innovative solutions and insightful industry knowledge across a diverse group of technical disciplines. Our hands-on, in-depth approach enables us to identify, understand and meet the business goals of our clients, whether they are a technology-related business or a traditional brick-and-mortar business utilizing technology and the internet to address business objectives.
Our technology and intellectual property counseling services include assisting our clients to identify and maximize the value of their technology and intellectual property assets through protection strategies, management, licensing, conveyance and other strategic agreements. In an increasingly global market, we provide solutions for our clients’ patent, copyright, trademark, trade dress, trade secret, industrial design, unfair competition and internet commerce.
Looking towards the future of the industry:
Technology & Innovation Development
DESIGN AND UTLITY PATENTS & LICENSING
For industrial designs, technology interfaces and a range of design-oriented components, we develop and file domestic and international design patent applications to help augment functional protection strategies.
A key feature of our work with our clients is to in-license and out-license patents and patent portfolios, collaboratively developing deal terms that match the commercial potential of the underlying patents and patent applications. We can help you develop and negotiate royalty structures, mile-stone payments, exclusive and non-exclusive licensing and a range of variations on industry-standard terms.
TRADEMARKS & BRANDING
We also help our clients monetize and enforce their brands. Whether in the form of licensing, mergers or acquisitions, we provide strategies for conveying rights to others that maintain and accentuate the value and defensibility of those marks. On the enforcement side, our team actively monitors our clients’ brand portfolios and defends those portfolios from infringement and dilution by third parties and competitors.
LICENSING, TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND COOPERATIVE RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
We also work with our clients to collaboratively develop and commercialize innovation, both at the research and development stage, as well as in the context of commercial partnering through such arrangements as marketing, distribution, white-labeling and OEM agreements.
IP DUE DILIGENCE & AUDITS
COPYRIGHT PROTECTION & TRANSACTIONS
TRADE SECRET PROTECTION & TRANSACTIONS
We also help our clients identify and manage their trade secrets through due diligence review and/or audits, laying the groundwork for potential mergers, acquisitions or licenses with outside parties.
