Intellectual Property

People put their money and, just as importantly, their hearts and souls into creating innovative brands, products, services, and content. Intellectual property can be tremendously valuable, and we work closely with our clients to protect their creativity and maximize its potential. 

Our clients trust us to be knowledgeable in these areas: 

  • Registering and protecting trademarks. For both established brands and businesses as well as entrepreneurs, our attorneys can assist in selecting business names and marks that can be successfully registered without infringing on others’ rights. Gross Shuman attorneys are versed in litigating unfair competition, trademark, infringement, and domain name disputes; in the growing digital world and Internet spaces we have an established record of success.
  • Registering and protecting copyrights. Copyrights protect ideas in a myriad of forms, including books, images, recordings, photographs, software, business plans, advertising copy, and designs. Our attorneys can help with the copyright registration process; and can assist in protecting you from infringements including unlawful copying, plagiarism, and other unfair uses.
  • Licensing agreements. Collaboration for creation and use of intellectual property are part of our core practice, as well. We are practiced in offering assistance in structuring and negotiating licenses, assignments, and other transactions in which intellectual property can be profitably used.
