Protecting and enforcing intellectual property rights should be a key element of every successful business model for both large and small businesses today. Why devote countless financial and human resources to the development of your intellectual property without the commitment to ensure that your competitors don’t profit from it themselves? Whether you are a well-established national company with a fully developed intellectual property portfolio needing uniform management, or a small, local business trying to create your presence, you’ve put time, money and effort into building and protecting your good name. From our locations in Blacksburg, Roanoke, and Richmond, we have helped countless businesses develop and protect their intellectual property.
We pride ourselves not just on knowing intellectual property law, but also on helping our clients better understand the particular nuances of each area of protection that may apply to their businesses, and then helping them decide which course of action is right for them.
