Today more than ever, businesses need to be concerned about issues related to intellectual property (IP) and take action to protect their IP rights. As a business owner, you are either creating your own IP or using someone else's. In today's competitive world, it is of the utmost importance to safeguard the ideas that set you and your business apart from your competition.
Press, Dozier & Hamelburg attorneys counsel individuals and businesses in effectively deploying and protecting intellectual property, from development, trademark and copyright registration to protecting intellectual property and resolving disputes. Intellectual property, which includes not only patents, copyrights, and trademarks, but also trade secrets, can be one of the primary assets of a growing corporation, but can also be difficult to protect from theft, misuse or infringement.
We counsel clients in a wide variety of intellectual property matters, including copyright and copyright infringement, trademark registrations, protection of trade secrets, and intellectual property licensing. In addition, we address business disputes and litigation arising from the misuse or potential misuse of intellectual property. We assist our clients in identifying and addressing both the opportunities and the risks that may occur when they contract with third parties for services and when they share intellectual property. Our goal in such counseling is to establish best practices to lessen exposure and to improve client’s management of their data, and to assertively assist in the protection of intellectual property when necessary.
