Intellectual Property, Entertainment, and Technology Protection

Intellectual Property: Our clients rely on our intellectual property lawyers to guide them through complex strategic planning, sensitive negotiations, and other important details of intellectual property protection.  Our attorneys have extensive experience and offer full service assistance for intellectual property issues, including those related to acquisition, protection, enforcement, and exploitation of patents, trademarks, copyrights, and industrial designs, as well as in unfair competition, trade secrets, computer law, and related matters. 

Entertainment: Through our entertainment practice, we assist clients with publishing rights, music licensing, and agreements for creative work such as performance rights, revenue transfer rights, talent agreements, and releases. We also help artists and entertainers to create appropriate legal entities to protect their creative assets and advise with respect to tax matters.

Technology Protection:  To ensure that our clients’ inventions and technology receive appropriate protections and meaningful commercial advantages, we offer comprehensive services that encompass the entire patent process.
