Intellectual Property


Our IP team is comprised of senior attorneys who carry advanced degrees from top universities in various scientific and business-related disciplines. We have counseled and acted as litigation counsel for clients across a wide range of high technology, entertainment, and other industries, on the creation, clearance, protection, transfer, licensing, and enforcement of intellectual property rights. The IP team also works closely with the Corporate, Tax, Private Client and Litigation teams to ensure that our clients benefit from full-spectrum representation.

Our focus is on helping our clients not only protect their IP assets, but also on how best to develop and maximize the value of those assets to advance business interests. We have represented clients through every step of litigation and resolution of intellectual property disputes, including infringement, valuation, and breach of contract issues. We advise on IP-related agreements, transactional work, the management and mitigation of risk, and disputes covering the full spectrum of intellectual property rights, all the while maintaining focus on maximizing the return from IP assets for the benefit of our clients. Our attention is always on the individual needs of our clients, and our firm is organized to enable our attorneys to unify their efforts, in the protection of our clients’ intellectual property.
