Information Technology, Electro-Mechanical & Software
Technology and software is the backbone of our economy. From mobile applications to operating platforms, software powers today’s cutting-edge technology. It also presents a unique challenge for IP protection, as the industry is fast-moving and rapidly evolving. For this reason, it is extremely important to involve an attorney to evaluate all aspects of IP Protection for your software development as early in the process as possible.
We have experience with a wide range of technologies in this area including silicone wafers, search engines, mobile apps, educational software, battery management software, encryption, and virtual amusement rides, just to name a few.
Consumer products have the widest customer base since they are client-facing and are the products that your business produces. Consumer products can embody intellectual property across any and all of the four IP realms: patents for securing the exclusive rights to your inventions; trade secrets for protecting the proprietary information about the processes and techniques that cannot be reverse engineered; copyrights for the creative manner you present your innovation be it written, website, video, or other marketing collateral; and trademarks protecting the branding (e.g., the names, logos, and taglines) that defines your valuable business by its tangible assets.
Our wide range of experience includes solar batteries, non-powered vehicles, boats, pattleboards and kayaks, outdoor sports equipment, firearms components, house improvements, video games, and virtual remote controls, just to name a few.
Engineering & Manufacturing

Our experience includes fibers, chemical containers, manufacturing methods, printing, color corrections, interior design, chains, drives, just to name a few.
Improving the lives of people, increasing the quality of medical services, and ensuring more positive patient outcomes is an area of technology that is rapidly evolving. Like many fields of technology, the medical device field requires patents and trade secrets protection. What can make a medical device unique is the time and expense required to bring innovations to market due to testing and regulatory approval. This necessitates extended buying cycles which in turn require extended protections to ensure a competitive advantage.
Innovations in the medical device field includes tourniquets, first responder packs, IV fluid heaters, IV line sanitary holders, and infection detection and prevention. Further, as technology advances, we will be seeing more intersections between medical devices, adaptive manufacturing, and software.
Architecture & Construction
Art that you live in, architecture and construction are marvels of design and engineering with a wealth of intellectual property found in the machines, materials, and methods to build them. IP protections can enforce your rights in the building materials, construction equipment, decking, digital and analog signage, roofs, gutters and downspouts, hand tools, fixtures and lighting systems, plumbing, design and construction, windows, and more.
Vehicles & Transportation
The past decade has seen tremendous innovations within the world of vehicles and transportation, from self-driving cars to hyperloop trains to space shuttle advancements. All of these technologies require protection and involve proprietary processes such as mechanics, aerodynamics, thermodynamics, batteries, fuel systems, electronic control systems, and more.
