Designs & Copyrights

When patents are unavailable or inappropriate, design protection can be the ideal course. But securing the right level of protection requires understanding of your industry – and all markets you operate in.

Trade Mark Attorneys

We know what goes into building a brand – we’ve been working on ours for over 140 years. And we understand how important it is to protect it.

Patent Attorneys

We cover the entire spectrum of patent law – from drafting new patent applications and handling oppositions, to assessing validity and conducting intellectual property audits.

Intellectual Property Law

Just as your ideas are unique, our approach to protecting them is individually tailored. We formulate intelligent plans to safeguard your intellectual property – now and into the future.
