IP Protection

Intellectual properties ("IP") include trademarks, patents, copyright, designs, plant varieties and the layout-design of integrated circuits. Registration of your IP provides greater protection of your company's brand, goods and services with greater remedies.

Advantages

  • Protects a company's name or logo, which is often a company's most valuable asset
  • Exclusive rights for the IP owner to use the mark nationwide in connection with goods or services.
  • Decreases the likelihood of another party claiming that your trademark infringes upon their trademark.
  • Giving you a legal presumption of ownership.
