Intellectual Property Advising & Litigation


Protect your intellectual property assets.

Patents, trademarks, copyrights, & trade secrets:

Just like real property and personal property, the legal system protects “intellectual” property. This includes inventions; business names and branding; secret formulas, processes, and methods used in production; and creative works such as illustrations, songs, photographs, poems, and sculptures.

We can help protect your intellectual property rights by:

  • Obtaining and enforcing your rights in your patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets.
  • Advising and guiding you through the process of obtaining intellectual property protection.
  • Assisting you with infringement issues, licensing, and compliance.
  • Negotiating and litigating intellectual property-related business contracts such as partnership, joint venture, distribution, franchise, licensing, and supply agreements.

Res Nova Law can help your business with intellectual property transactions and intellectual property litigation.
