Intellectual Property Attorney

Trademarks, service marks, copyrights, and patents are all methods of protecting your intellectual property rights – and your financial interests in those rights. The attorneys at Haile Shaw & Pfaffenberger can assist you in obtaining these rights and protecting them.

As you develop your company brand, questions about when to file a trademark or service mark, how to file, doing needed searches, trademark availability, and understanding the role of the trademark examiner are some of the issues with which we can assist our clients.

A United States Patent grants the patent holder the right to exclude others from making, using, selling, offering for sale, and importing into the United States, a patented invention. If one or more of these activities is performed without the permission of the patent holder, patent infringement occurs. Our firm can assist you in obtaining patent rights and protecting them.

Copyright matters often present complex issues pertaining to protection, authorship and ownership, licensing and transfers, and enforcement of copyrights. Today’s global and digital environment contributes to the complex issues faced by copyright owners.

Copyright protection applies to both published and unpublished original works of authorship, including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works the moment a work is fixed in a tangible medium.

Our attorneys assist clients with copyright registration issues, protection of copyright, fair use, licensing, work-for-hire agreements, infringement actions and more.
