You have a name, a product or an idea … while these may be intangible, they represent your intellectual property - the unique character of your business. They are yours and yours alone, and like business owners the world over, you want to keep them that way.
A well-designed and well-researched intellectual property program helps to safeguard your names, products, business information, and ideas against infringement or copying by others. It can also save your business valuable time and money in the event a name or idea is already taken.
I have over 31 years of experience practicing law in Colorado. I work to assist new businesses create a solid foundation with entity formation, contract formation, and brand protection. I tailor an intellectual property protection program around your business's unique needs – whether you are setting up a new entity, creating a new name for a product or service, developing or negotiating contracts, registering a new brand, or preparing an advertising campaign in print or over the Internet.
Legal Assistance includes: corporate formation and maintenance, trademark selection, review, prosecution, & protection, U.S. copyright registration and protection, Intellectual property audits, general contract drafting and negotiation (including licensing, government contracts, and grants agreements), due diligence in asset sales and acquisitions, defamation, privacy & publicity, social media and Internet law issues, real estate contract issues, acquisitions, disputes, and more.
Through my mediation practice, I strive to assist others in developing creative solutions to conflict in the following areas: general business disputes, commercial, and civil disputes, real estate disputes, contractual disputes, and intellectual property disputes, including without limitation, trademark, copyright, non-compete issues, and trade secret issues.
Over my years in practice, I have worked in other varied areas including complex civil litigation and domestic issues.
