Duane Morris’ IP attorneys focus on leveraging their clients’ intellectual property to help them achieve success in the marketplace. Our IP lawyers provide counsel on the most efficacious methods of establishing and developing IP holdings and protecting IP rights so clients can realize the most value from those assets. From patents to trademarks and copyrights to licensing and technology transfers to IP audits and IP asset due diligence, our attorneys offer clients portfolio management and strategic advice on obtaining and protecting valuable intellectual property.
Our attorneys utilize cutting-edge technological resources, including offering our clients technology solutions for real-time patent and trademark docket management. The Duane Morris IP Portal gives clients anytime/anywhere access to a wealth of information on their IP holdings, including status updates on filings and alerts to upcoming deadlines.
The firm’s IP lawyers represent clients ranging from large multinational corporations to individual inventors, authors and owners of creative works. Our IP team includes highly trained attorneys with multiple technical degrees and jury trial experience as well as former patent examiners and patent agents, former corporate patent and trademark counsel and professors of IP law. A sampling of matters the IP Practice Group handles includes biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, consumer products (particularly in the food and home and personal care categories), entertainment, media, franchising, distribution, trade secret matters and licensing projects. Our IP attorneys also assist clients in disputes regarding rights of privacy and publicity, antitrust and Internet and e-commerce issues.
