Our Intellectual Property/E-Commerce and Cyber Risk Practice Group addresses fundamental concerns in the complex and fast moving areas of intellectual property, electronic commerce, and technology.
Identifying and managing intellectual capital will add value to your business, develop commercial opportunities and help prevent intellectual property disputes. Our firm's longstanding focus on trial and claim resolution distinguishes our approach to both preventing and ending disputes effectively and efficiently. We work toward achieving solutions rather than cataloging obstacles.
Intellectual property issues arise as businesses identify, create and protect the value of their intellectual creations, including names, logos, brands, products, talent, experience, procedures, and publications. Areas of substantive law in the field include copyrights, trade marks, trade secrets, unfair competition and cybersquatting. We litigate disputes involving internet domain names, counterfeiting and piracy of intellectual property, and patent, trademark and copyright infringement.
Our practice group also offers contract review and negotiations, enforces and defends claims of licensing infringement, and provides insurance coverage reviews and opinions.
The practice group includes lawyers located throughout our offices in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. We support our colleagues in other practice groups to provide service tailored to the needs of the client. Additionally, our affiliation with The Harmonie Group extends our geographical reach across the United States. Whether a dispute rests in Federal or State Court, or before arbitration panels or regulatory agencies, our record of effective and efficient advocacy is our greatest asset.
