Businesses of all types and sizes are starting to realize that their digital assets have value and must be protected, including trade secrets, patents, trademarks and copyrights. Smart protection and monetization of these intellectual property assets often proves the difference in success or failure in the competitive landscape.
Our attorneys have experience asserting claims against entities that use intellectual property without permission and defending companies against claims of infringement and unauthorized use. A business’s proprietary trade secrets often represent practices developed over generations and must be protected. These threats are more prevalent than ever because of the way trade secrets and other proprietary information is easily shared on electronic devices and can be removed by departing employees and exploited by competitors. Just as businesses would never leave the warehouse door unlocked, we help businesses identify and protect these valuable digital assets through IP portfolio management and litigation.
Led by firm co-founder Derrick Boyd, our IP team strives to understand our clients’ technology and business in order to mount litigation and licensing strategies that make business sense.
