Patents and Trademarks

Through our affiliation with Allan Litovsky, we can handle the complete range of patent law matters, including domestic and foreign patent prosecution, IP due diligence, and related matters. We can help you assess and implement a prudent and cost-effective patent strategy, obtain patent protection for your technologies, receive counsel on ongoing patent matters, and manage a patent portfolio comprised of intellectual property assets.

We have extensive experience in IP litigation, including patent infringement actions, trademark infringement and dilution actions, cybersquatting claims (through ICANN’s Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy), rights of privacy and publicity disputes, etc.

We also have a thriving trademark practice. We provide representation in the selection, registration, enforcement and defense of trademarks both in the US and abroad. Additionally, we have considerable experience in the opposition and cancellation proceedings before the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, where we successfully defended our startup clients’ trademarks against claims brought by billion-dollar corporations.
