We’ve done one thing since 1865, and we do it better than anyone else: we protect innovation. Intellectual property is more than forms and court dates. Our work begins while your idea is still developing. We help you identify what is new and valuable in your work and how that can be protected, and we help you steer clear of pitfalls. Once we procure intellectual property rights for your ideas, we handle licensing and help guide you through the next phase of IP ownership. We will also enforce your IP rights and defend you against claims of infringement when necessary.
