As one of the largest general practice law firms in the United States, Foley has taken a global approach to intellectual property (IP) law, fully integrating it into our multidisciplinary practice.
The result is comprehensive IP solutions for your business. We understand that IP issues touch various aspects of a business and we have extended our broad menu of IP services to include litigation, regulatory affairs, and general business counseling. Our attorneys are successful in meeting the IP needs of businesses around the world and have served clients in the United States, Canada, Latin America, the European Union, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and the Pacific Rim. Our clients range from small start-up companies to large international and multinational corporations.
With a large number of our attorneys admitted to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, we provide the broad strength and depth of representation needed in managing your IP assets.
Your Challenges Are Met With Service and Solutions
Our knowledge of IP law transcends geographical borders and helps provide solutions for every type of industry. Our service strengths include, but are not limited to:
- Business method patents
- Internet and e-commerce
- Transfer agreements
- Trade secrets
- Strategic counseling
In addition to comprehensive client services, our attorneys help your managers make the best IP decisions to meet both your short- and long-term goals. We share our knowledge through seminars and training sessions, portfolio maintenance advice, and the refinement of docketing systems.
Our attorneys use their technical knowledge, training, and commercial experience to form patent review committees. These committees save our clients time and money, while assuring that their new developments receive the proper legal protection.
With Foley's IP Department, you also receive the benefit of Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR). For many disputes there may be more effective methods of resolution than traditional litigation. ADR can significantly reduce the costs and burdens of litigation and offer resolutions not available in court. We discuss beforehand the availability of ADR procedures so you can make an informed choice concerning resolution of a dispute.
