At the heart of any modern product, service, or technology is some type of intellectual property, whether it is a copyright, trademark, patent, or, most likely, some combination of the three. The recognition and timely protection of intellectual property requires the input and advice of a skilled lawyer. Our lawyers handle the search, application, and filing of trademarks and copyrights. Although ALG lawyers do not handle patent applications or prosecutions, we can assist in identifying inventions that require patent protection and, through other lawyers with whom we have established relationships, arrange for the conduct of patent searches and the filing of patent applications. We also represent clients in the licensing of intellectual property and help develop strategies for the effective monetization of intellectual property.
