Our Intellectual Property Law Services
Patents grant exclusive rights to inventors and businesses to create and maintain their market advantages over competitors. They ensure that an inventor’s efforts and investments are not infringed upon by others in the market. By securing patent rights, clients can protect their innovations and monetize their research, while still allowing the public to use their products and services. Patent holders generally have a limited monopoly to capitalize on their inventions only during the defined patent periods.
Tsircou Law assists clients with each stage of patent procurement, including invention disclosure, patentability search, U.S. and foreign patent preparation, provisional and nonprovisional patent applications, processing, issuance, prosecution, and appeal (if necessary). We also help clients develop and maintain their patent portfolios, monetize their investments (e.g., royalty programs), and avoid patent infringement.
Trademarks are protected symbols, words, logos, or designs that help consumers identify and distinguish one business’s goods and services from competitors in the same industry. Trademarks often apply to names, slogans, or logos used for branding purposes. Tsircou Law guides clients through the legal processes for establishing trademarks and other business marks, such as trade dress protections and service marks. We employ a comprehensive business-mark clearance process designed to help clients avoid conflicts, value potential marks, process applications through the USPTO, and assert their trademark protections.
Copyrights are an important form of intellectual property that give creators exclusive rights to make important decisions regarding the use and distribution of their original works. Copyrightable items include literary, musical, artistic, and other creative expressions. If managed correctly, copyrights can protect the creator’s privilege to make copies or adaptations for performance or other media. Registration with the U.S. Copyright Office is a way to strengthen copyright protections by empowering owners to recover maximum statutory damages and legal fees in infringement cases. At Tsircou Law, we help our clients register, license, and enforce copyrights so that they can get the most out of their creative efforts.
IP Portfolio Development
Effective intellectual property portfolio development is an essential ingredient for long-term success. An IP portfolio contains a variety of legal protections, including patents, copyrights, trademarks, and other tools designed to secure assets from infringement and illegal usage. Our IP portfolio development strategies help clients build and maintain their market presence, competitive advantages, and overall value. We will evaluate a number of factors when developing and maintaining your portfolio, including market dynamics, potential risks, upcoming changes, and more.
New Space and Deep Tech
The exploration of space and new technologies by private and non-government entities are exciting areas of scientific advancement, offering opportunities for startups, investors, scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs, and military contractors alike. With proper intellectual property strategies in place, these individuals and entities can effectively protect and capitalize on their research efforts, especially as it concerns creating and engaging emerging markets. Tsircou Law develops custom new-space and deep-tech startup IP strategies tailored to each client’s individual needs and goals in order to ensure their research and resulting products are adequately protected and valued.
