Our Intellectual Property group conducts patent and trademark searches, prepares and prosecutes U.S. and international patent, trademark, and copyright applications; and works with clients to maintain and enforce issued patents and registered trademarks. We provide corporate counseling on issues of licensing agreements; assignments, security interest and confidentiality, nondisclosure agreements, trade secret protection; and patent and trademark infringement. Calfee attorneys also represent clients involved in intellectual property disputes and litigation – helping resolve or litigate issues of infringement, trademark oppositions and cancellations, Inter Partes Reviews (IPRs) of patents, and trade secret and unfair competition violations.
