Our attorneys have worked in federal and state courts across the country in all the key areas of intellectual property – patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets.

We work in numerous industries, but we have particular expertise in manufacturing, medical device, food and beverage, publishing, technology, ecommerce, and software. Intellectual capital can be one of a business’s most valuable assets. We understand how these intellectual assets support strategic goals, and we tailor our enforcement strategies to achieve your business objectives.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
