Patent and Trademark Attorneys
Do you have an idea? Perhaps it's an idea that you have been working on for months, or maybe even years?
We believe that is far better to excel in a single area of law then to be mediocre in a number of different fields. So, we focus on doing only one thing - protecting new ideas - and doing it better than anyone else.
Every day we secure and preserve the intellectual property rights of our clients with their patent, trademark and copyright issues. We even extend our practice to even more specialized areas of intellectual property laws such as trade secrets, computer and Internet law, unfair competition, and franchising matters related to intellectual property.
Both of us are frequently quoted in national legal journals and intellectual property publications. Over the years, we have become recognized experts in intellectual property law and are AV rated by the Martindale Hubbel legal directory, the highest rating possible for a law firm.
And as clients of our firm, you will always deal directly with one of us.
But before you do, let me say this....
Intellectual Property Information
Patent Law: (click this link for more Patent information)
Patent law allows an individual to profit from their idea. By holding a patent, it gives you the legal right to stop others from using your idea unless they:
When you file a patent, you establish ownership of an idea. It’s very similar to the way a Title proves ownership of an automobile or a deed proves ownership of your home. And just like your home, patents can be very valuable. They can be sold, purchased, leased and used as collateral for loans. You can even use a will and pass it along to your heirs.

A trademark gives you the exclusive right to use a mark to distinguish the goods or services of one person or company from another. Typically, a trademark will be a word, phrase, logo or design. Sometimes you’ll even see a trademark be a combination of these elements.

Trade secret law will protect a businesses proprietary and confidential information that they use as part of their normal business practice. Some common examples of what is protected by trade secret law would be marketing plans, customer or supplier lists, formula’s for chemical or biological compositions, and unique manufacturing processes.
Unfair Competition Law: (click this link for more Unfair Competition information)
Unfair competition law can be applied to a wide variety of commercial or business practices and conduct, including acts of trademark and trade dress infringement, false advertising, dilution, and theft of trade secrets.
Franchise Law (click this link for more Franchise information)
The success of any franchise is largely due to a trademark for the product or service that is being provided. When a business owner finds others that are willing to invest their time and money to assist with growing a business concept, that business owner can use franchising to clone their business ideas and marketing techniques. The franchise owner will then see growth rates much higher than if they were opening more units by themselves.
