INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY  & DIGITAL MEDIA LAW

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW

Our clients invest great effort to enhance their competitiveness by the use of their trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights, etc.  Our intellectual property practice addresses our clients’ goals.   They may need work on digital media projects or they may have a trade secret concern with vendors or former employees.  As we strive to devise ways for protecting their business, ideas, and property which will set them apart from their competition.  By doing so, we seek to add value for their services, product, and their brand.  We understand that their business venture, idea or product’s success, hinges on protecting their brand, website domain name, trademarks, inventions, business methods, trade secrets, as well as their photos, films, music, and performance recordings.

We also engage on negotiated arrangements with vendors, contractors, and other competitors as the need arises. We also advise our clients as they venture to bid on contracts and how their ongoing performance responsibilities may impinge on their trade secrets, copyrights, and or trademarks.
