The term “intellectual property” refers to creations of the mind that can be protected by law. There are four traditional categories of IP. Patent law protects inventions and discoveries. Copyright protects works of authorship. Trademark law protects brand names and logos. Trade secrets protect confidential business information. A related practice is called technology law. Technology law addresses challenging issues involving security and privacy that emerge when new technologies are introduced into society.

Regardless of which area of law applies, we work closely with every client to design the best possible strategy for obtaining the right balance of protection using the most appropriate legal tools available.

Our clients come from all levels of business, from large corporations with thousands of intellectual property assets to individuals with clever new ideas. Whether you are large or small, we can almost always find ways to protect your valuable resources.

Protorae Law’s Intellectual Property and Technology Law practice includes Trademark, Copyright, Trade Secret Counseling, Cybersecurity and Privacy in addition to IP Litigation. Our attorneys have many years of experience practicing law in some of the largest firms in the world. In addition to our legal experience, we are also former innovators, having been scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, brand consultants, and in-house counsel. We are just as comfortable in a corporate board room as we are in a research laboratory or even a makeshift garage workshop.

Because intellectual property is an integral part of today’s complex businesses, we like to take a proactive, collaborative, and strategic approach with each client. The more we know about business plans and goals, the better we can anticipate and avoid intellectual property issues before they grow into significant problems that divert valuable resources from core business needs. Our integrative approach also guides us naturally to recommend creative solutions that match our client’s goals as well as their budgets.

Our diverse team is always ready for a challenge. We enjoy helping our clients navigate the legal landscape and realize their dreams. We guide clients to identify protectable intellectual property assets and then act as a strategic business advisor to help develop, grow, and protect those assets.

We invite you to read our blog for new and interesting developments involving intellectual property law and the ever-changing technology that people interact with every day.
