Intellectual property refers to things you create or invent. Just as you have rights to real, tangible, property, you also have rights to your intellectual property. Securing, protecting, and defending those rights, however, can be a challenge given the speed and anonymity with which information can be shared in today’s internet age. At the Fort Worth, Texas law firm of Puls Haney PLLC, we have the experience necessary to guide you through the process of securing your intellectual property rights through proper registration. Once your rights are established, we can help monitor for threats and aggressively prosecute any infringement on your intellectual property rights.
Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Application
Obtaining a patent, trademark, or copyright is a complicated and often lengthy process. Without the assistance of an experienced intellectual property attorney you could waste a considerable amount of time and money only to have your application denied by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Infringement
Obtaining a patent, trademark or copyright is only the first step in protecting your intellectual property. Once your IP rights are secured and registered, you must be vigilant about guarding those rights. Our IP attorneys will aggressively pursue any unauthorized usage and infringement of your IP rights.That is when a victim, or the survivors, should turn to a Fort Worth truck accident attorney to ensure their rights are protected.
Often, a company’s livelihood depends on protecting and enforcing their trade secrets. Our trade secrets attorneys will help you do just that as well as zealously defend you against claims for trade secret misappropriation.
Technology Transactions and Licensing
If you plan to lease, license, sell, or purchase intellectual property rights you need an experienced IP transactions attorney on your side to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the negotiations.
Non-Compete and Non-Disclosure Employment Agreements
Key personnel often have the ability to do significant damage to a company should they divulge trade secrets or otherwise infringe on their employer’s IP rights. The first step in preventing this from occurring to your company is to enter into a non-compete and/or non-disclosure agreement with key personnel as a condition of hire.
Intellectual Property Litigation
Intellectual property rights are much more difficult to secure, maintain, protect, and defend than rights to tangible assets, such as real property. Consequently, litigation involving IP rights is common. Regardless of which side you are on, if you find yourself involved in IP litigation, our IP litigation team will be by your side to protect you and defend your rights.
At the Dallas/Fort Worth law firm of Puls Haney we have a deep respect for the creative process involved in bringing intellectual property to life. Our experienced attorneys are committed to helping you protect and defend your rights to your work.
