The difference is

Trademarks, patents, copyrights and trade secrets are important assets and often possess significant value.

We counsel clients around the world in intellectual property (IP) matters, including the registration of trademarks and copyrights, the prosecution of patent applications, and the protection of trade secrets.

Our portfolio management services are developed in close consultation with you in order to meet your objectives. We assess and monitor the status of your assets in a portfolio, as well as develop strategies to address how your IP rights are — or should be — acquired, exploited, enforced and maintained. We help you identify areas of potential vulnerability and additional revenue opportunities.

We manage large portfolios for clients around the world. Over the years, we have developed an extensive global network of foreign associates that enables us to service the trademark, copyright and patent needs of clients outside the United States.
