Intellectual Property

Offit Kurman's Intellectual Property (IP) Group helps dynamic businesses and individuals to develop and protect their IP assets. We can help you through all stages of your IP matters - from concept through development, registration, licensing, marketing, renewals, enforcement and sales. Our comprehensive and strategic approach to IP protection is designed to maximize the value of your IP assets and minimize the related risks.

We represent individuals, private businesses and public companies to develop IP protection plans of varying complexity which meet the specific needs of each client.

Emerging technologies and intellectual property move at a lightning-fast pace in today's global marketplace.

Our clients turn to us early and often for counsel regarding how to build, expand and profit from their IP portfolios.
