Areas of Practice
Many businesses owe their success to a trade secret -- whether it's the formulation of Coca-Cola, a special part that goes into a widget, a hard earned clients list, or even a proprietary method for making a certain part or product. Protecting that secret and keeping it out of the hands of competitors can be vital to the continued success of the business. In the United States, there are laws to protect intangible assets, including trade secrets, but the company and all of its employees must do their part as well. At Maher Law we can assist you in the narrow path between maintaining those critical secrets.
At IP Partners, we deliver all clients' copyright registration and litigation needs.
Patents protect new and unique inventions. We have partners to help you strategically patent your inventions, in the U.S. and internationally. Together with our partners we use utility patents to protect the functional features of your products and processes (how they work) and design patents to protect the ornamental features of your products (how they look). Our mission is to help you chart an effective and realistic path to valuable patent rights.
With our partners we can negotiate patent licenses, patent sales, and joint development agreements in which intellectual property is featured. We also provide due diligence research and other support for patent-related corporate transactions.
Whether you are a potential client, or an attorney who needs help on a patent-related matter, we will be happy to assist you.
Establishing a strong brand is pivotal to business success. Protecting that brand is equally important. Yet many small businesses overlook an important first step in securing their brand: trademarks. Protecting your intellectual includes preventing others from using your trademark, or something similar, and depends on many factors. At Maher Law we will review those factors and create a plan that fits your business.
Entrepreneurial viability is conducted on a razor's edge. The first step towards mitigating legal and regulatory risk is to learn enough about the subject so that you can fully appreciate what you don't know. In a study of firms formed in 1998, only 44% were still around only four years later, according to the Small Business Administration.
