Practice Areas


If you’ve created any type of original work — including books, songs, art, photographs, plays, software, among many others — it is your intellectual property, and it does not have to be published to be protected by copyright laws.

International Law

Every country has their own laws, and things can become muddled when you conduct IP business and commercial transactions across borders — especially if there are any treaties regulating such negotiations, such WTO, NAFTA, and CAFTA, or other trade agreements.


Running a successful enterprise often involves trademarks, trade secrets, and software disputes, among many others. Litigation is often complex and drawn out, and you need a well designed strategy to protect your business rights every step of the way.


Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution protects the exclusive right of inventors to their discoveries — but there are certain deadlines you have to meet in order to protect those rights.


Trademarks are a type of intellectual property that help manufacturers or merchants build brand identity, identify its goods and distinguish from those made or sold by another. Words, phrases, symbols, products, shapes or logos can have a trademark that can be created and protected for business use.

Internet Law

The internet helps you stay connected and cast a wider net when conducting business. But it also lends itself to disputes, such as domain name issues, website development disputes, and other related liabilities.
