Strategic Planning, Prosecution and Implementation Services
Taking into consideration the unique issues, objectives and constraints of each client, The CommLaw Group assists our clients in formulating plans, policies and strategies that create and preserve value for their intellectual property.
We assist clients with the selection and clearance of new brands and logos as trademarks, but we do more than search, file and prosecute. Where needed, we assist clients in a global strategy of brand development and protection, prepare opinions on availability, and counsel clients on the nuances of use and notice, and handle the preparation and prosecution of applications for registration. Our expertise extends to copyright clearance and registration for artistic, software, technological and many other types of works.
Licensing and Transactional Matters
Utilization of intellectual property goes beyond the owners' direct use and includes licensing, joint marketing, joint development, publishing, distribution and other activities. The CommLaw Group’s attorneys assist clients with the structuring, negotiation, development, drafting and implementation of diverse licensing arrangements, joint ventures, collaborations, acquisitions, dispositions and other contractual agreements. We work to achieve creative solutions addressing non-competition and exclusivity issues, employee and independent contractor relationships, financing and sales transactions, multi-national alternative dispute resolution, cross licensing, coexistence agreements, and much more.
Infringement and Other Litigation
The CommLaw Group’s experience in trademark, trade dress, copyright and trade secret infringement and other types of litigation involving intellectual property includes developing and pursuing policing programs, pursuing infringers and counterfeiters, defending infringement claims and actions and prosecuting and defending trade secret theft and unfair competition actions. Our attorneys will pursue temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions, jury and bench trials and other means to protect our clients’ valuable works. We also have extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution, mediations and arbitrations.
