Calfee has one of the largest Intellectual Property practices in a general practice firm within the Midwest. The attorneys in our IP group have broad experience and a deep bench in prosecution, litigation, opinions and counseling. Of the approximately 40 skilled attorneys in Calfee's Intellectual Property practice, more than 30 attorneys are registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

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 and non disclosure 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.

Serving a national and international client-base comprised of both established and entrepreneurial enterprises, Calfee provides fully integrated, high quality legal services throughout the United States and around the world.
