Intellectual Property

intellectual propertyUnprotected ideas are free for everyone to use. But if you take the proper steps to protect the ideas that form the basis of your competitive advantage, you will be freer to exploit your ideas and build greater wealth. The area of law that protects ideas is called “Intellectual Property,” and it includes the subdivisions of Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights, and Trade Secrets. Argent Place Law supports your Intellectual Property in the following ways:

  • Applying for patents, trademarks, copyright
  • Developing a plan to defend your patents and trademarks
  • Documenting your trade secrets and devising a plan to protect them
  • Crafting specific Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Drafting non-compete agreements
  • Negotiating and drafting licensing agreements that monetize your ideas
  • Drafting the Terms of Use for your interactive website
  • Using copyright to protect designs
