INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

PROTECTING YOUR INTERESTS

Intellectual property (IP) includes trademarks, domain names, patents, copyrights and trade secrets and is widely considered to be one of the most valuable assets of today’s businesses. Our attorneys assist entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes in the acquisition, protection and monetization of their IP rights.  

In the unfortunate event that a third party threatens their IP rights, we handle the following intellectual property matters:

TRADE SECRETS

We have helped our clients protect and maintain their trade secrets by drafting contractual agreements with employees. We also have extensive knowledge of and experience with the Vermont’s trade secrets statute.

 

TRADEMARK & INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTION

We have obtained numerous trademarks which have helped our clients to build a brand and protect valuable business assets. Well-protected intellectual property makes a business more competitive and thus a more attractive target for an acquisition by a third party. We also work with specialty patent counsel when patents are involved. Additionally, we have extensive experience with trademark licensing and co-exist agreements.

 

TRADEMARK LITIGATION

Our firm has been involved in trademark litigation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. For especially complex trademark matters, we have relationships with some of the leading trademark attorneys in the nation.

 

TRADEMARK INFRIGEMENT

Barr Law Group assists clients in protecting their trademarks and other intellectual property against third-party infringement. Our team helps with the preparation of cease-and-desist letters, opposition to pending trademarks, petitions to cancel existing trademarks, and other appropriate protective measures.
