Your trademark is one of your most valuable assets. In the new era of e-business, virtually all of your assets are based in your intellectual property. Your content is subject to copyright law and/ or trade secret law. Your inventions are subject to patent law and trade secret law. Your brand is tied to trademark law. These four areas of law are the pillars of intellectual property law, or “IP law.”
As a partner with Techlaw LLP, I manage the firm’s trademark practice, and handle most “soft IP” and corporate matters. My partners are licensed patent attorneys. Together, we offer a well-rounded range of IP legal expertise that ranges from high tech to biotech to low-tech.
I have spent the past twenty years as an active entrepreneur. I’ve started or acquired five businesses in that time, and I have invested in a dozen other start-ups. My partners have also been entrepreneurs. Our practical experience in business makes us better counselors. We have been in your position first-hand, and understand the pressures and the needs of start-ups and small businesses of all kinds.
On both my personal site (which you are reading now) and on our IP law firm site, we try to offer a host of useful articles and information. Feel free to browse the articles here, or visit my business resource blog, GetinBusiness.com.
