Protecting Your Rights To Your Intangible Creations

As an inventor, engineer, artist, author or more, you contribute considerable time, resources and energy to create your original work. To protect your rights to this work, you need to take legal action.

At SLC Law, we guide you through the process of establishing and defending your intellectual property assets. With over a decade of experience, we can provide a distinct advantage to clients across California seeking proactive solutions or representation in a dispute.

Determining The Appropriate Protection For Your Needs

Depending on the items you wish to legally protect, you may need to apply for a patent, trademark or copyright. Patent and trademark law can be particularly complicated. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office rejects many first-time patent applications, while business owners must register a trademark immediately or risk being unable to enforce their rights.

We work with many clients to apply for design and utility patents. A design patent covers the look of a product and aesthetic features, such as its shape. A utility patent covers the way that a product works or its functionality. We can assist to identify and apply for the right patent.

Strategic Representation To Fight A Claim

Intellectual property claims can be complex and require intricate knowledge of strict laws and regulations. As experienced litigators, we fight a wide array of claims, including:

  • Patent infringement
  • Trademark infringement
  • Trade secret infringement
  • Counterfeiting
  • Defamation

For claims of patent infringement, the general process begins with the requirement that there must be technology that a patent protected. The defendant must understand the boundaries of that protection while the plaintiff must show a violation. Then, the plaintiff may pursue the appropriate damages.
