Intellectual Property

Our Intellectual property practice group is focused on counselling businesses and other institutions —including non profit organisations such as universities— with respect to securing their intellectual property and information technology rights. We advise on trademark and copyright registration, trade secret protection and patent filling. We also specialise on Internet law, e-commerce, software licensing, unfair competition and false advertising and provide legal services relating to IP litigation.

With our guidance, clients can establish, protect and enhance the value of their IP portfolios. Our client roster is diverse, ranging from start-up ventures to established industry leaders. We also have experience in all aspects of the emerging technology spectrum. We litigate IP matters in courts throughout the country and before governmental agencies. Our mission is to give our intellectual property clients the highest quality, most responsive and most cost-effective legal counsel possible. 

Many of our IP attorneys have advanced degrees, scientific research experience and practical business experience in advanced technology industries—backgrounds that enable them to understand and appreciate the significance of technical innovations quickly and to focus on satisfying the clients’ legal needs.
