We work closely with our clients to protect their important IP assets. Failing to protect trademarks, trade secrets and copyrights is devastating to companies. Our clients are assured that their assets are safeguarded.
In addition to filing applications for trademark and copyright registrations, we assist clients with license agreements and trade secret protection.
We have prosecuted hundreds of trademark applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the California Secretary of State. We have litigated opposition proceedings before the Trademark Trials and Appeals Board and in state and Federal courts. Our in-depth knowledge of trademark law is invaluable to our clients.
Eric D. Morton, principal of the firm, has much experience in trademark law. Eric taught trademark law California Western, School of Law and was and was the supervising attorney of that school’s Trademark Clinic.
We help our clients’ review and inventory their intangible properties. We identify a company’s trade secrets, trademarks, copyrights, business methods, and other property that needs to be protected. We educate business owners as to IP and we create intellectual property portfolios for them to protect their IP. An IP portfolio allows us and our clients to systematically track their property and its use. The IP portfolio also is a method for tracking due dates on registration renewals and the status of pending applications.
Big companies have in-house attorneys, or large law firms, manage their IP portfolios. Small business owners, in this complex world, must take the same approach to IP as big corporations. We can help small businesses protect their valuable assets.
