Copyrights
A copyright protects original works of authorship and grants the holder various exclusive rights. These include the right to reproduce the work, prepare derivative works, perform or display the work publicly, or distribute copies by sale, rental, lease, lending or other means. The copyright holder may agree to grant certain rights to other individuals or entities.

Trademarks
A trademark is a symbol, design, word, phrase, other element, or combination of these, that distinguishes a product as being from a particular source. They are used to avoid confusion in the marketplace and protect and promote particular brands. Service marks have the same function but in relation to services rather than goods.

Trademark Prosecution
Trademark prosecution is the legal process of registering a trademark or service mark. An application is filed and a government examiner trained in trademark law and research reviews the application to determine whether or not approval should be granted. This review focuses mainly on the strength, type and clearance of the mark.

Trade Secrets
The protection of trade secrets is vital to the success of any business operating with this type of intellectual property. Without a strategic plan in place to achieve this, your business is placed at risk when you have to share this information with employees or vendors or if competitors attempt to access this information.

Bio Medical / Medical Devices
Medical devices and bio medical technology are areas of constant research and improvements. In order to protect your concept, product, legal rights regarding the product, as well as your related profits, it is vital you obtain sound advice regarding these intellectual property matters.

Electrical and Mechanical Arts
The electrical and mechanical arts are also areas of constant innovation and development. With the market constantly flooded with new devices and an entire industry of individuals and corporations seeking to obtain a competitive advantage, it is vital you protect your concepts and products.

Investing in IP
Investing in intellectual property can be a rewarding endeavor. In order to protect your profits, however, you must ensure your agreements are soundly established and administered. Similarly, as the owner of the rights to a product, you need to know how to protect your rights while taking advantage of the interest of investors.

Licensing and Contracts
There are a variety of licenses and contracts that can come into play in intellectual property matters. These include licensing to market your product, licensing allowing you to market another's product, contracts between you and those using your product or vice versa, and more. Correctly addressing these matters is crucial to the success of your business.

IP Litigation
Litigation may arise regarding matters of intellectual property if one party believes there has been an infringement on their IP rights. This may occur in relation to patents, copyrights, trademarks and more. Thorough preparation and a compelling case are imperative when you are involved in litigation of this kind.

Patents
Patents do not give you the right to make a particular product but the right to legally prevent others from making, using, offering for sale or selling the product you have patented. In order to obtain a patent, your application must satisfy certain requirements and be presented in a clear, compelling manner.

Petitions
The processes surrounding copyrights, trademarks, patents and other elements of intellectual property require certain petitions for different purposes. Obtaining legal assistance with such an action is vital in order to improve your chances of a successful outcome and our firm can help you with your specific needs.

Patent Prosecution
Patent prosecution refers to the process of obtaining a patent and the related actions of applicants or patent holders, their representatives and the patent office. This can involve negotiation with the patent office in order to acquire the grant for a patent or, following the grant, issues such as amendment and opposition.

Portfolio Management
Monitoring and managing intellectual property assets is a vital action if you wish to be in control of the success of your business ventures. Costs, risks and benefits must all be skillfully weighed as you navigate through the various IP transactions and opportunities you encounter and develop. Sound legal advice is a must.

Electronic Filing
