Intellectual Property Counseling

Mapping out IP strategies.

In helping clients protect and manage intellectual property (IP) assets, Husch Blackwell pays close attention to details while never losing sight of the big picture. With client business and technology objectives clearly in mind, we advise on the pros and cons of IP strategies involving patents and trademarks; joint ventures; and transfers and licenses. 

Once a strategy is developed, our team counsels clients on which assets to protect, conducting searches and advising on registration availability. We develop portfolio maintenance schedules and assist with all necessary filings for patents, trademarks, copyrights, domain names, licenses and agreements. We prepare and negotiate agreements such as nondisclosure, confidentiality, website hosting and noncompetes. And we provide watch services for all forms of intellectual property worldwide.
