Intellectual Property & Technology

Our Intellectual Property & Technology attorneys offer the complete range of legal services for the identification, development, acquisition, protection, commercialization and enforcement of intellectual property (IP) assets and related technology. Whether performing due diligence for an acquisition, securing a patent or trademark, or using litigation to resolve an IP dispute, our full-service intellectual property group works closely with clients to provide business-minded solutions and to achieve results in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

Our licensing and transactional attorneys develop a sophisticated understanding of our clients’ businesses and dedicate time to understanding the industries in which our clients operate. They are devoted full-time to counseling, drafting, and negotiating technology transactions. Our IP transaction team also works seamlessly with our other practice groups to provide integrated services to clients in healthcare and corporate mergers, acquisitions, financings, and restructurings involving technology and IP assets.

Our IP litigation practice combines the technical knowledge of our patent attorneys with substantial trial experience. IP litigators protect clients’ ability to research, develop and market intellectual assets, including counseling clients as both plaintiffs and defendants in intellectual property enforcement disputes.

Some of our IP portfolio services include:

  • Patent prosecution, maintenance and enforcement.
  • Trademark clearance, registration, maintenance and enforcement.
  • Copyright litigation and counseling.
  • Trade secret litigation and counseling.
