If you own, are starting, or are involved in a business of any size, you have intellectual property issues. You have a brand to establish and maintain, you have secrets to protect, and you have ideas to develop, license, and profit from.
Often, trade secrets, patents, trademarks, and copyrights are secondary to the major concerns of many businesses. However, proactively and effectively protecting your IP assets can reduce much of the burden and enhance the benefits associated with resolving threats and blemishes on your brand or technology.
Most importantly, doing so before issues arise is not simply cost effective: without establishing ownership of your intellectual property, courts may refuse to hear your claims.
Bibby, McWilliams & Kearney is here to help develop and protect your interests in patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. We regularly assist clients through all stages of the intellectual property process, including the creation and acquisition of ideas as well as the creation, protection, and enforcement of confidentiality, nondisclosure, and non-compete agreements. Our attorneys are also experienced in drafting franchise, licensing, profit sharing, and royalty agreements.
Whatever the intellectual property issue may be, Bibby, McWilliams & Kearney is ready to help.
