We assist clients with IP strategy, including IP portfolio management, as well as IP litigation, IP / technology agreements and transactions, and advertising, marketing and related regulatory matters. We routinely assist the clients of non-lawyer agents as well as lawyers who do not practice in our areas of expertise, respecting those referrals.
