As the value of intellectual property has multiplied over the last three decades, so have the costs of acquiring and protecting it. Well-managed companies no longer pursue acquisition or litigation without first carefully assessing the long-term viability of the underlying IP. It is our job to help clients make wise investments and direct resources toward those assets most likely to drive sustained growth. In order to provide this type of strategic counsel, the attorneys at Cozen O’Connor develop a deep understanding of each client’s overall business and how IP serves the client’s broader business goals.
Our attorneys couple business acumen with prescient analysis of an ever-shifting legal and technological landscape. The rules governing intellectual property change constantly – and the underlying science and technology change even faster. We are active participants in the IP bar, so we know about legal developments as soon as they happen. And we have the scientific and technical background to handle the most complex IP matters. Cozen O’Connor operates on the cutting edge of law and science to help clients create IP portfolios that will retain value over the long term.
While some law firms have attempted to corner niches in the IP marketplace, Cozen O’Connor believes clients are best served by attorneys who handle a wide range of IP issues, from patent enforcement to post-merger trademark consolidation, and who represent a wide range of clients, including plaintiffs, defendants, buyers, and sellers. Broad experience allows us to see each matter in a larger context and adopt approaches that support the health of an entire portfolio. It also gives us insight into the priorities of partners and adversaries; we have been on both sides, so we can accurately anticipate the actions and reactions of all constituents.
In an industry built on talk, Cozen O’Connor has made its name by doing. We have built our firm one case, one victory at a time. Our attorneys have impeccable academic credentials and are able to combine intellectual rigor with practicality and efficiency. We provide sophisticated, business-minded advice aimed at one simple goal: getting the right result for our clients. No matter how complex, contentious, or critical the undertaking, we persevere until the job is done.
What you’ve built, we can defend. What you envision, we can help construct.
