Intellectual Property (IP) encompasses all aspects of protectable, intangible assets, resulting from creative innovation, and IP law is a means by which such creative innovators can create a “barrier to entry” in the marketplace for their competitors. Our Intellectual Property Practice Group works closely with clients to evaluate their specific business or commercial needs, and to devise a customized IP strategy to help them effectively and efficiently reach their goals.

The IP Practice Group specializes in helping clients increase the value of their IP assets, and counsels clients in all areas of IP law, including patents, trademarks, trade dress, unfair competition, trade secrets, licensing, general IP agreements, IP legal opinions, and related IP issues.
