agiLE EXPERTISE

Ideas, tangible or not, are the most important things to protect in today’s competitive creative market. With so many channels and constantly replenishing feeds to watch out for, tracing the ownership and originality of a design, brand name, or invention needs the laser-focused eye of a trained attorney. We’ll handle the search, application, and filing process of trademarks, copyrights, and patents. And if your idea has been infringed upon, our litigation team will negotiate the best possible licensing and settlement agreements.

There is no one size fits all solution.  The specifics of what you need depend on the phase of the company, the level of funding, budget, and existing team.  Other factors come in to play as well such as location -- some locations are easier to recruit in-house talent than others and the expense level is different.  This is why we have experts who specialize in different phases of the company as well as technology platforms, and even cultural and communication styles.  For us to serve you best, we often work as a team, and bring on different resources to help with different areas of expertise and planning.
