IP Services

We dedicate our entire practice to intellectual property law. We help our clients protect their ideas and inventions through the following:

Patents

Obtaining a patent ensures that no one else will be able to make, use, sell, offer for sale or import your invention. There are many issues that should be considered before applying for a patent.

Trademarks

Trademarks and service marks are types of intellectual property that companies use to identify their products and services, and to distinguish themselves from other companies.

Copyrights

Copyrights protect the author of the original work against another person or entity copying his or her work. The length of the copyright can vary depending on when the work was originally created.

Trade Secrets

Many times, trade secrets are a company’s most valuable assets. Whether it’s a formula, method, technique or process that sets you apart from the rest, protecting your trade secrets is critical to success.

Internet Properties

In general, the first registrant of a domain owns the domain. However, in the United States, trademark rights are secured by the first user of the trademark or service mark.

Franchising

Franchises are governed by federal and state laws and have complex requirements. Depending on your circumstances, it can be the right option to expand your business.

Foreign Protection

The U.S. registered patent attorneys at Livingston Law work with foreign co-counsel worldwide to assist clients with obtaining patents and foreign patent protection.

Litigation

When another individual or business is infringing your intellectual property, you have the right to pursue action to stop the infringement and collect appropriate damages.
