All businesses are born from an idea or concept for a product or service, many of which are built on a foundation of unique ideas for products and services. The success of these businesses can hinge completely on the effectiveness of legal counsel in protecting corporate intellectual property.
Companies must protect intellectual property from a variety of angles, including their dealings with employees, vendors, and partners. In protecting the intellectual property of our clients, the Forrest Firm has built considerable experience in the drafting, review, and negotiation of various intellectual property-focused licensing and acquisition agreements, as well as confidentiality, non-disclosure, and employment agreement sections related to protection of intellectual property.
Our in-house team has many capabilities that serve the interests of our clients, with attorneys focused on intellectual property areas of patents, trademarks, and copyrights. Our attorneys file patent, trademark, and copyright applications with the US Patent and Trademark office, and they also assist clients in responding to Office Actions from the USPTO. Regarding enforcement, we also help our clients in sending and responding to cease-and-desist letters related to patents, trademarks, and copyrights.
Creative services provided by Forrest Firm legal staff include naming of products and services, as well as vetting potential trademarks prior to filing.
