The firm has a long track record as the trusted IP advisor to innovative public and private companies, medical institutions and research universities, investors, entrepreneurs and inventors. We regularly advise and counsel clients regarding both domestic and international intellectual property issues that are critical to their businesses. Our attorneys are particularly active in advising clients with respect to strategies for protecting and exploiting intellectual property rights. This may involve helping clients devise and execute strategies for developing and protecting intellectual property portfolios (including patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets), licensing intellectual properties, and partnering with third parties.
At times, our assistance takes the form of evaluating third-party patents and counseling clients prior to developing and launching new products. During the critical period of development, and before product launch, it is important that clients are aware of competitors’ patents and that they obtain sophisticated legal advice about how to mitigate the risk of future patent infringement.
