Today’s knowledge economy makes intellectual property assets—patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, data and business methods—prime currency. As a strategic partner offering a full panoply of intellectual property services, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck partners with you each step of the process in effectively managing these assets to maximize your business goals. Whether it is recognizing and guarding against data privacy concerns, consulting on initial product clearance, developing, identifying and protecting innovation, or fighting for and defining boundaries for intellectual capital in an era of increasing technological capability and legal complexity, our team of skilled professionals is there by your side.
We are scientists and engineers, former in-house counsel, marketing and advertising consultants, certified privacy consultants, and former executives from technology, bioscience, media and engineering companies who take a forward-looking, broad-based approach to the management, analysis, protection and defense of your intellectual property.
Our diverse team procures, maintains and protects patents, trademarks, trade dress, copyrights and trade secrets at local, national and international levels. We counsel clients on technology, data privacy and brand matters and build comprehensive and cohesive intellectual property portfolios and strategies. We conduct audits, prepare and review licensing agreements, support joint ventures, and analyze corporate transactions. We guide product development from initial stages of research through regulatory approval, and research and prepare freedom to practice assessments and invalidity opinions, and often provide post-grant strategic counseling.
When your intellectual property assets become the subject of adversarial proceedings, either in court or before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, our team handles complex patent infringement litigation, Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) inter partes reviews, Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) oppositions and cancellations, trade secret injunctions, and product seizures. We also work with foreign counsel to coordinate parallel procedures outside the United States. In addition, we work closely with our Business & Corporate Advisory, Mergers & Acquisitions and Private Equity groups in due diligence and document preparation for merger and acquisition deals that have an intellectual property element.
