About Intellectual Property Law

Intellectual property law helps protect intangible assets by securing and enforcing legal rights to business names, inventions, designs, and artistic creations. We often talk about intellectual property when referring to an invention or work of art, but for most clients, intellectual property laws are most relevant to business branding, marketing, and advertising issues. We can help you sidestep common issues with logos, domain names, federal patents, and other intangible assets—while helping you avoid unknowingly infringing upon someone else’s intellectual property.
