Intellectual Property

Klehr Harrison's Intellectual Property Practice Group shares the firm's business-oriented, entrepreneurial approach to the law by providing innovative business solutions to critical intellectual property concerns.  In taking this approach, we help clients grow and protect their companies by leveraging their intellectual property assets.  Intellectual property is often a client's most valuable asset.  We recognize that and work closely with our clients to ensure that the appropriate level and scope of protection is sought and properly maintained.

Our intellectual property practice is international in scope.  We advise individuals, corporations and educational institutions on all issues involving  trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets.  One of the most vibrant areas of our intellectual property practice involves working with many of the region's emerging, high-technology companies.

The lawyers in our Intellectual Property Practice Group also advise clients on the selection, proper use and registration of trademarks and service marks, provide trademark clearance opinions and assist clients in filing and prosecuting trademark and copyright applications throughout the world.

When the acquisition or transfer of intellectual property rights is at issue, our intellectual property lawyers step in to assist in the due diligence process and advise clients on licensing, assignment, representations and warranties and related issues.  Our attorneys bring to the table a breadth of practical knowledge regarding technology commercialization and funding issues and have often been instrumental in helping clients find appropriate partners and business contacts.

The solid transactional foundation of our intellectual property attorneys has bred seasoned intellectual property litigators who have collectively represented clients in many diverse and complex intellectual property litigation matters.  In this respect, the Intellectual Property Practice Group combines its skills with those of the firm's Litigation Practice Group to represent clients in intellectual property litigation in federal and state courts throughout the United States.
