Protecting Your Intellectual Property

Protecting your business from competitors and fraud is an ongoing process. It begins, however, with ensuring your intellectual property is adequately protected and registered.

At O'Connor and Associates, our intellectual property attorneys will assist your business with the registration of copyrights, trademarks and patents. We can also protect additional types of proprietary information such as marketing information, formulas and product design.

Registering a trademark, copyright or patent is a critical step, but it is only the beginning of the process. Your intellectual property must be protected for the life of your business. We can help you put contracts and additional measures in place to protect your ideas and products from employees, partners, vendors and competitors.

Trade secrets and other types of intellectual property provide businesses with a leg up in the marketplace. Protecting these properties is essential to maintaining your competitive advantage. When former employees take trade secrets to the competition, great financial risk ensues.

At O'Connor and Associates, we have successfully protected our clients' legal rights, and financial and business interests, during trademark, copyright, and patent infringement matters. Our extensive litigation experience in this area means that we are prepared to defend your intellectual property at trial, in arbitration or mediation.
