What We Do

Our services benefit both established businesses and entrepreneurs, and include:

  • Litigation: Whether it's intellectual property, commercial or regulatory litigation, we can help you resolve your matters effectively and creatively and protect the intellectual property that is at the heart of your venture.
  • Intellectual property (IP): We can guide you through the process of securing and protecting patents, trademarks and copyrights.
  • Corporate-commercial: Our lawyers provide services required by any business, such as incorporating and organizing businesses, negotiating and drafting contracts, and facilitating business transactions, but with a deeper understanding of the special needs of IP-based businesses.
  • Regulatory and government relations: Many of our clients have intensive interaction with regulatory agencies dealing with matters such as product licensing, health concerns and environmental regulations. We can help you navigate these processes to get your products to the market.
  • Privacy and data protection: We work to create regulatory and privacy law compliance strategies for our clients.
