Intellectual Property

Our firm has extensive experience in helping our clients protect their intellectual property through trademarks and copyrights. We take a 360° approach to trademark advice: we help our clients select, use and protect their marks in effective, sensible ways, both in the U.S. and abroad. Our attorneys are skilled in negotiating licenses for trademarks and software, and have extensive experience in selling, purchasing, securitizing and financing trademarks, copyrights and related assets.

We represent publishers and authors on the full range of development, license transfers and work-for-hire contracts, and advise clients on strategies for registering works for maximum copyright protection. We also work with clients in protecting their IP assets during litigation. Our IP litigators have argued a landmark case before the United States Supreme Court and have appeared before the TTAB and other U.S. Courts. We also work closely with counsel abroad, to ensure high-quality legal protection wherever our clients do business.
