Patents, Trademarks and Copyright
At LUPER NEIDENTHAL & LOGAN, we recognize that intellectual property might comprise some of your most valuable assets. Understanding and protecting your intellectual property portfolio can position you for success in the idea driven marketplace in which we live. Our attorneys work with clients to identify, counsel, protect and enforce their patent, trademark and copyright protections. We conduct patentability studies, draft and file U.S. patent applications, and see each application through prosecution before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. We work with a network of affiliated foreign patent firms, including the Meritas group, in order to extend patent rights around the world.
We advise on the selection of trademarks and the enforcement of trademark rights, as well as provide guidance on copyright protection and analysis of copyright infringement. For our clients with valuable trade secret information, we have drafted confidentiality and non-competition agreements, as well as developed guidelines for employees’ usage of trade secret information. We have negotiated and drafted licensing agreements for our clients, as either the licensee or the licensor of intellectual property, as well as agreements for the sale of all types of intellectual property. Most importantly, we seek to understand our clients’ intellectual property needs in the broader context of their business goals, to aid our clients in fully capitalizing on these valuable assets.
