    Areas of Focus


    Organizations of all types and sizes rely upon the Lanham Act to safeguard their brand, business names, slogans, logos, packaging design, trade dress and more. Whether registering a trademark at the state or federal level or conducting trademark clearance, we help our clients take a proactive and strategic approach to trademark compliance from the start. Likewise, in both infringement enforcement and defense, we are an experienced partner, ensuring common law rights are not abused nor violated.


    From software code to website content, we assist in initial copyright registration, as well as infringement enforcement to ensure control over original work is maintained. And to optimize the value of copyrighted material, we manage transactional arrangements involving copyrights, including the assignment of ownership and licensing.

    Internet Issues

    To protect web-based assets, we file and defend domain name disputes, investigate online copyright infringement and send takedown notices. We also perform an ongoing review and analysis of websites and advise clients on best practices for establishing privacy policies and procedures designed to protect proprietary information. In the event of a privacy breach or security issue, we quickly address the loss of consumer, financial and health data, while taking measures to prevent recurrence.

    Trade Secrets

    Our attorneys recognize that trade secrets are often a company’s most valuable asset, reflecting advanced innovations and competitive advantage. We advise and counsel clients on best practices for maintaining, protecting and enforcing trade secrets. We also defend against claims of trade secret misappropriation across a range of industries and technologies.
