Intellectual Property

“Intellectual Property” or IP is a catch-all term for assets that cannot be seen or touched, but may represent most of a company’s value.  Whether these assets are copyrightable works (software, publications, blueprints), trademarks, trade secrets (processes, customer and prospect lists) or simply confidential information, a company must register, protect and preserve such items.

Langin Law Firm can help IT and non-IT companies protect the tangible value of these intangible assets.  Services can be provided on a flat fee “outside general counsel” basis, fee per project or hourly rate.  The firm also assists litigation or merger and acquisition counsel who need assistance with IP issues.

The firm has assisted clients with:

  • Registering and maintaining trademarks before the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO)[1]
  • Drafting and negotiating template contracts such as:
    • Software or other copyright license agreements
    • Trademark licenses or coexistence agreements
    • Confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements
  • Reviewing and negotiating vendor contracts to ensure the client owns the work product (work made for hire agreements, assignments)
  • Drafting and negotiating internal contracts and policies, such as:
    • Employment Agreements and Employment Severance Agreements
    • HR and Policy Documents:
      • employee handbooks
      • permitted use policies for internet and e-mail
      • social media policies
  • Advice on creating and preserving trade secrets
  • Advice on IP laws and regulations, such as:
    • Lanham Act, federal and state trademark dilution laws
    • DMCA
    • Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act
    • ICANN Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy
  • Associating as co-counsel to a client’s litigation or merger/acquisition counsel who require assistance with IP issues
