Intellectual Property Law
Los Angeles, California Intellectual Property Attorney Practice Group
A company’s intellectual property may be just as valuable, if not more valuable, than any of its other assets. Trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets are vital instruments to protect this asset and ensure the unique value of a business’ intellectual property. With thorough planning, steady enforcement, and timely filing, our Los Angeles intellectual property lawyer practice group is here to ensure that your intellectual property is safe and secure.
First, our trademark attorneys can help you to choose the right trademark. A good trademark should not only be pleasant to you and your customers, but it also should be available in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) records. Once you have selected your desired trademark, our Los Angeles Trademark attorney practice group will register your mark with the USPTO. While the registration process can be confusing and filled with many rules and regulations, the experience and knowledge of our trademark attorneys will simplify the process and make all of the proper filings on your behalf.

If your trademark is ever copied or otherwise infringed upon, our Los Angeles trademark litigation attorneys can bring an infringement lawsuit in both Federal and California courts to stop the infringer from the unauthorized use of your trademark on its products or services. We can assist you by preparing and sending cease and desist letters, seeking preliminary injunctions and other court orders to force the infringer to stop unauthorized use, and seeking a final judgment or arbitration order on your behalf.
The most effective way to copyright is to register your copyrights within the first ninety (90) days from the first date of publication. By doing so, if you are ever forced to file a lawsuit to protect your copyright, you may receive up to $150,000 in damages per infringement. Also, if you are the prevailing party, you can recover your attorneys’ fees and costs if you register within such 90 day period.
Your customer lists, customer research information, supplier lists, inventory lists and business plans are trade secrets that can be vital to your business’ survival and prosperity.
