Intellectual Property - Patent - Trademark and Copyright Law
Effective legal representation in all areas and phases of Intellectual Property law include three distinct but related skill sets.
- Careful, accurate and thorough drafting of documents is the necessary foundation for the protection and use of intellectual property. The skill and care exercised in drafting documents often determines the ultimate outcome of intellectual property matters. This is particularly true with respect to licenses and patents.
- Effective representation before various government agencies is essential to securing Intellectual Property rights. Patent, trademark, service mark, and copyright rights all involve some interaction with government agencies during their procurement phases.
- When conflicts arise that can not be resolved by any other means, litigation skills and experience are essential. As Shakespeare once advised, "Beware of entrance to a quarrel; but being in, Bear't that the opposed may beware of thee."
