Patent, Trademark, and Small Business Lawyer
Protecting Your Intellectual Property Is My Passion
A patent is a form of intellectual property that gives its owner the legal right to exclude others from making, using, selling, and importing an invention for a limited period of years, in exchange for publishing an enabling public disclosure of the invention.
I strive to evaluate and counsel clients based on real world data and potential return of investment. I am not a patent mill, I don’t take ownership interests in client’s inventions or businesses, and I don’t think every invention is worth patenting.
A trademark is a word, phrase, or logo that identifies the source of goods or services. Trademark law protects a business’ commercial identity or brand by discouraging other businesses from adopting a name or logo that is “confusingly similar” to an existing trademark.
Trademarking your business name, logo, domain name, designs, and artwork is important to protect your business, build a brand, and create intellectual property assets.
