With over 110 years representing local, national and international clients, Whitman Breed understands that intellectual property is the critical asset fueling the growth and success of their businesses. We help our clients establish, protect, and, where necessary, defend a broad spectrum of intellectual property rights.
Our team provides a full range of services to protect and manage trademark rights, including clearing trademarks for use; formulating trademark registration and protection strategies; applying for, docketing, maintaining, and monitoring trademarks; negotiating trademark licensing and coexistence agreements; conducting infringement investigations; and implementing anti-counterfeiting strategies. Using both internal and external resources, we can provide services that are domestic and international in scope.
We work closely with Whitman Breed’s business law department to address the trademark aspects of various transactions, and with its litigation department on a wide variety of trademark claims, including infringement, dilution, right of publicity, and domain name disputes.
Trade secrets are the lifeblood of many of our clients’ businesses. But in times of high employee turnover and increasing cybersecurity concerns, they are constantly at risk from internal and external threats. We develop strategies and procedures to protect our clients’ trade secrets, collaborate with our business law department to build strong trade secret protections into key agreements, and turn to the litigation department to bring and defend a variety of trade secret claims.
We advise clients on copyright creation and protection, acquisition and licensing, dispute resolution and enforcement, and matters related to corporate transactions, for both digital and traditional media.
