Protect Your Assets - Profit from Your Ideas

Our intellectual property attorneys protect the rights of engineers and other entrepreneurs who leave existing companies to launch businesses based on their own unpatented ideas. We also represent the interests of clients whose trade secrets have been compromised or exploited by former employees.

In addition, we assist businesses to determine if maintaining the trade secret is advantageous to the company in the long-term. Evaluation of trade secrets is an important part of intellectual asset management. In some cases patenting and licensing the technology is more profitable. Our firm handles the patent application and negotiates the license agreements.
