Intellectual Property Strategy & Counseling
Although filing a patent application is often (but not always!) an essential step, protecting an invention never begins and ends here. As you build a company around your innovations, it is critical to promptly identify and decide how to protect all aspects of your intellectual property. This can rapidly become expensive. Consequently, deciding on a rational and comprehensive value-focused IP strategy is very important.
From developing a portfolio of utility and design patents, decisions regarding protection in overseas markets, applicable trade secret policies, branding activities including trademarks and trade dress, copyrights for a variety of generated media, and a host of due-diligence activities–we can help you decide if, when, where, and how to invest your budgeted resources at the earliest possible time.
