Intellectual Property Advice And Counseling

Intellectual property assets are industry-specific. Loss of the exclusive right to use your brand name or other intellectual property can lead to lost business revenue. The U.S. Trademark Act affords protection for registered trademarks. The U.S. Copyright Act of 1976 protects your original works of authorship, such as texts, artwork, software programs, or a website's "look and feel."
