Intellectual Property Law and Litigation Attorneys

Intellectual property rights, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, have never been more valuable than they are today. Competition is fierce due to globalization and the ease and speed with which information can be communicated. As a result, there has been a sharp rise in the number of patent applications filed as companies seek to maximize the return on their investment in research, development, their products and services. Similarly, trademarks are protected and marketed more aggressively as companies seek to establish strong identities in crowded markets. In response to piracy and file sharing, copyright protection has been subject to sweeping new legislation. Not surprisingly, trade secrets are more closely guarded to maximize the competitive advantage they convey. In all fields of intellectual property, litigation has become more common as companies seek to leverage their intellectual property rights in order to strengthen their competitive position.
