The wide proliferation of internet and mobile data technology over the past decade has been a tremendous benefit to people all around the world; unfortunately, it has also made intellectual property rights more difficult to defend than ever.  If you’re an artist, business owner, or anyone who creates, you need the advice of an attorney who understands your unique needs.  As intellectual property attorneys, we specialize in leveraging trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and rights of publicity to foster brand protection and product development.
