The success of a business often revolves around key elements of its intellectual property such as its distinctive equipment, methods of practice, software, or written material. If you lose control of these valuable business assets, you could be facing lost profits and an uncertain business future.
Seeking Legal Remedies For Infringement Or Misappropriation
Federal and state laws govern patents, trademarks, trade secrets, and copyrights. When you have discovered your protected intellectual property is being used by another individual or business without your permission, you can file a lawsuit to stop them from using it and to pay you the damages incurred as a result of their infringement.
Intellectual property remedies are often complex and time-sensitive, requiring an attorney who is experienced in both federal and state courts to get the results you seek. Federal statutes such as the Lanham Act and the Patent Act, among others, provide relief for violations of intellectual property protections.
At McNeill Von Maack, we have such experience. We are regularly litigating intellectual property disputes in federal courts throughout the country. We understand that your business has spent tens of thousands of dollars and countless hours preparing and marketing your marks, dress, copyrights, and inventions. Our lawyers can help you seek a remedy to protect your work.
We also have substantial experience in protecting your trade secrets. Trade secrets are valuable assets to businesses, giving them an advantage over their competitors. We are experienced in seeking and obtaining immediate and swift remedies to protect your trade secrets, including temporary restraining orders, injunctions, and other important remedies.
Our attorneys have experience in various state and federal courts in effectively bringing actions against competing companies or former employees who misappropriate your trade secrets under state or federal trade secrets laws, including cases involving the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA) and the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (USTA).
