We’ve built our reputation on providing intellectual property services and business law to our clients involved in businesses with creative products.
Our attorneys litigate intellectual property matters and negotiate, draft and provide consultation to clients with respect to intellectual property transactions and agreements, including:
Our lawyers teach intellectual property topics at the University of Maryland School of Law and the University of Baltimore School of Law and have every year for decades. Our attorneys teach trademark, copyright, and advertising law to judges, lawyers, and chapters of the Association of Corporate Counsel. We deal daily with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for trademark registration and opposition actions. We are continuously engaged in negotiations concerning allegations of trademark infringement for clients, as plaintiff and defendant. In the last several years, our lawyers have prosecuted or defended approximately 30 copyright infringement, trademark/trade dress infringement, trademark dilution, and trade secret misappropriation cases in various United States District Courts. Our litigation experience also includes trademark infringement claims and suits related to the use of trademarks in websites and as domain names. And in more than one instance, we have discovered, through litigation, the identities of defamatory posters on Communications Decency Act-protected websites.
For more years than some of us want to recount, our intellectual property attorneys have provided general legal and business counsel to companies of all sizes. The more we know of our client's businesses, and industry, the closer our ties become and the more assistance we can offer.
