intellectual property

Intellectual property (IP) encompasses the intangible creations of the mind – inventions, artistic works, designs, and symbols used in business.  In the dynamic and tech-driven San Francisco environment, IP assets are a major source of competitive advantage and economic success. An experienced San Francisco intellectual property lawyer plays a crucial role in safeguarding these valuable assets.

  • Copyright: Protecting original works of authorship, including software, literary works, music, film, and visual art. This involves securing copyright registration, advising on ownership and licensing agreements, and defending against infringement claims.
  • Patent Litigation: Representing clients in disputes related to patented inventions. This can include pursuing patent infringement claims, defending against allegations of infringement, and navigating the complex patent litigation process.
  • Trade Dress: Protecting the distinctive look and feel of products or businesses. This helps prevent consumer confusion and allows companies to build strong brand identities.
  • Trade Secrets: Safeguarding confidential business information vital to a company’s success. This encompasses developing strategies to protect trade secrets, drafting non-disclosure agreements, and litigating cases of misappropriation.
  • Trademark: Securing and maintaining rights in the names, logos, and slogans that identify businesses and their products. This includes trademark registration, policing against infringing uses, and negotiating licensing agreements.

  • IP Strategy: Developing a tailored approach to maximize the value of your IP portfolio, aligning it with your business objectives.
  • Securing IP Rights: Helping you obtain patents, trademarks, and copyrights to establish strong legal ownership.
