Determined Bay Area lawyers litigate intellectual property disputes

At the state and federal levels, different types of protection are available for different types of intellectual property. Our law firm helps clients to obtain and litigate:

  • Patents A patent holder gains the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, selling or importing the patented item. We handle patent infringement cases to help clients protect patented designs, inventions and plants.
  • Copyrights A copyright can protect an original work of authorship, such as a manuscript or art piece. The author has the exclusive right to reproduce, publicly perform or display, prepare derivations, and distribute copies of the copyrighted work. We represent authors in copyright infringement lawsuits.
  • Trademarks A word, name, symbol or device used to brand a product or service can be protected with a trademark. Others cannot legally use the trademarked asset or something confusingly similar to market their own products. We represent clients in trademark infringement actions.
  • Trade secrets A confidential formula, algorithm or other information that gives your business a competitive edge may be considered a trade secret. Trade secrets are protected by state and federal laws.

Patents and intellectual property law are sensitive, complex subjects. We possess decades of experience helping to establish legal protections for our clients’ products and to enforce them through skilled litigation.
