Intellectual Property

In our increasingly global economy, intellectual property assets are of critical importance to businesses seeking to secure, maintain and expand market position.

Such globalization, combined with rapidly changing information technologies and the Internet, have resulted in an increased focus on the protection of patents, copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks, service marks and trade dress. We are well-suited to efficiently and expeditiously handle the broad range of disputes in this area.

The complexities presented by constantly changing technology that allows for the free exchange of information have resulted in increasing conflicts over material that is often central to the very existence of an enterprise. In a time when much of the emerging information industry remains unregulated, these disputes often become the subject of litigation.

Our attorneys call upon substantial experience and skill in the litigation, arbitration and resolution of intellectual property disputes. We employ state-of-the-art technology at all stages of a dispute to ensure that our clients' interests are protected and that they remain well informed.

Our goal is to protect our clients' rights while minimizing the impact of disputes on their business endeavors. However, we will not hesitate to litigate and vigorously advocate on behalf of our clients in order to secure their unfettered rights. We are experienced in resolving the wide range of issues involved in intellectual property disputes of the new economy, and represent a wide variety of the companies and individuals involved in this area, including retailers, Internet design consultants, Internet service providers, software designers, hardware designers and manufacturers, and telecommunications concerns.
