Intellectual Property

In this age of global competition and the wide-ranging intellectual property protection afforded by international conventions, companies (whether as proprietors or licensees) no doubt have to manage numerous risks arising from the various types and complexity of IP assets. Our lawyers are well versed in the acquisition and protection of IP rights as well as managing and developing those IP rights. As such, we are able to advise clients in the areas of patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets at any stage in the growth and development of their IP assets. We also interface with our Sports and Media Practice on a wide range of issues including performance and production rights, and broadcasting and licensing rights.

Our practice also extends to the ever-evolving high-tech world. Our tech-savvy team is engaged on matters involving software development, content licensing, website development and a myriad of e-commerce related issues.

Lastly, we actively assist our clients in selecting and clearing trademarks and service marks, registering and maintaining marks and copyrights, both domestically and globally.
