Proliferation of technology and global communication channels has made the protection of patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets far more challenging. Increasingly faced with infringement and false advertising by competitors, businesses have turned to the courts to protect their valuable brands and strategic assets.
As technology continues to broaden copyright law, the firm assists clients in identifying and preserving the next generation of copyrightable materials. The firm's lawyers help manage and prepare IP applications and portfolios, build and preserve corporate brands, protect software patents and trade secrets and establish both offensive and defensive strategies.
Our attorneys handle legal issues arising from online commerce, licensing and international trade agreements. We protect brands and intellectual property created during company mergers and handle traditional copyright matters such as protecting clients against the unauthorized replication of familiar products. We are also known for work in the development and application of public key infrastructure (PKI) technologies, which facilitate secure online transactions.
