We invest heavily in startup entities and develop partnerships with selected companies who require the benefit our intellectual property (IP) counsel. For select entities we provide the mentoring and legal counsel they need to protect the IP they create.
Being an entrepreneur is as challenging as it is energizing. We recognize that entrepreneurs have a unique set of circumstances — making IP key to creating value for shareholders and investors as well as to erecting barriers against entry by competitors. When applying our unique IP assessment tools, our IP attorneys maintain a steadfast focus on making sure that your startup business is in the best position possible to capture its full market value.
Entities that qualify for our IP Fund receive quality legal counsel, at no cost, that is focused on protecting all the critical IP in your startup company. To do this, we start by conducting a comprehensive review of your current IP coverage; and from this work with you, we determine if there are existing IP rights that need to be protected. Once we complete our assessment, we do what is needed to protect your IP; we will seek patent protection, register trademarks or copyrights, or revise key contracts if there are flaws that would enable IP value to escape your company. Clients who have gone through this startup process and who continue to involve us as they grow can rest assured that the IP in their company is well protected.
