Practice/Industry Group Overview
Duane Morris' Intellectual Property (IP) Practice Group 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 capital 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 e-commerce 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 counsel and professors of IP law. A sampling of matters the IP Practice Group handles includes entertainment, media, biotechnology, franchising, distribution, trade secret matters and licensing projects. Our IP attorneys also assist clients in disputes regarding rights of privacy, antitrust and Internet and e-commerce issues.
Unlike IP boutique firms that limit their practice solely to intellectual property matters, Duane Morris is a full-service firm with attorneys supporting our IP lawyers in all practice areas, including litigation, tax, corporate law, customs enforcement, antitrust, employment, business and finance, international law, government contracts, bankruptcy, banking, personal financial planning, insurance and securities. Our firm also has offices in major markets across the United States, as well as an office in London, and has strategic alliances with international networks of law firms to help us service our clients' needs worldwide. Our clients benefit from our IP lawyers' ability to draw upon this diverse group of counsel. Duane Morris lawyers use a collaborative approach to leveraging intellectual property capital to help clients meet their goals, without requiring them to repeatedly explain their business and objectives. Duane Morris enjoys the distinction of being consistently ranked in the top 15 percent of trademark law firms in the United States in surveys by Intellectual Property Today.
