Intellectual Property and Technology Law
DR’s business planning practice incorporates intellectual property protection in the form of establishing trademarks, copyrights, licensing and non-compete agreements, and litigation when necessary.
Comprehensive Planning and Protection
In keeping with our entrepreneurial tradition, DR continually updates its practice to stay current with changes in society at large that affect our clients’ businesses. Technology’s introduction into almost every area of life drives sweeping changes in American business, yet also leads to a host of legal issues that are not often fully appreciated. The multidisciplinary character of our practice provides our clients with comprehensive solutions aptly tailored to their individual business interests, advising them of the identification, protection and exploitation of intangible assets.
Training and Experience
DR’s attorneys and staff are knowledgeable and experienced in broad areas of business law, Internet and e-commerce issues. In keeping with our commitment to provide modern legal services, we insist upon up-to-date training and education to stay informed. Over the past several years, we have advised clients regarding formation and acquisition of Internet service companies; jurisdictional issues arising in “cyberspace” litigation; antitrust issues relating to e-commerce; intellectual property issues arising on the Internet, including copyright, trademark, trade secrets and national and international regulation of intellectual property on the Internet; privacy issues relating to communication of information over the Internet; and e-commerce issues specifically relating to sales of goods and services over the Internet.
In addition to intellectual property audit and corporate compliance services, our attorneys regularly address issues related to the assignment or licensing of intellectual property and the handling of third-party information by our clients.
