Intellectual Property is all about defining the “IT.”

What is IT? Did they take IT? Do you own IT? How is IT different? Can you do IT? 

At Hahn Loeser, our intellectual property team gets it, so we can devise creative ways to define, explain, protect, or defeat IT. And we do it in a way that helps maximize our clients’ business opportunities and accomplish their objectives. 

Our intellectual property attorneys and patent agents have decades of experience advising clients ranging from multinational corporations to mid-market companies to innovative start-ups, giving our Intellectual Property Area the depth and breadth of expertise in all aspects of IP and technology law, licensing, and counseling. 

Originally hailing from some of the most prominent old-line IP firms and departments from across the country, our team includes technically adept patent attorneys and agents, many with Ph.D.’s and industry experience, and seasoned patent litigators with years of courtroom experience in high-stakes patent infringement at both the trial and appellate levels. We pride ourselves on getting the science right and building our legal positions around technically sound arguments. 

Our roster also includes seasoned trademark and copyright practitioners, who manage national and international portfolios who are experienced with oppositions, cancellations, and infringement litigation. 

We have a thriving trade secrets practice. The team regularly represent clients in state and federal courts in trade secret injunctive hearings and trials, while also advising clients on trade secret protection programs, competitive intelligence data privacy and data security issues, and name-image-and-likeness (NIL) compliance, policies, and rights.  

Whether it’s high-stakes infringement litigation, navigating complex trade secret disputes, fending off patent and copyright trolls, creating a strong world-wide patent or trademark portfolio, appearing before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, or negotiating multimillion dollar international licensing deals, we’ve been there and done that, and we can make it happen for you.
