MacCord Mason, a North Carolina law firm with offices in Greensboro and Wilmington, assists business clients in developing and implementing competitive strategies that include the acquisition and enforcement of commercially valuable intellectual properties, and the avoidance of valid third-party intellectual property rights. In fulfilling this mission, the firm engages in the following activities:
- Client counseling regarding intellectual property matters grounded on an in-depth understanding of the client's business.
- Acquisition and maintenance of intellectual property rights in the United States and foreign countries.
- Licensing and transfer of intellectual property rights, and structuring of ventures with third parties involving intellectual property.
- Litigation to enforce the client's intellectual property rights, and to defend against infringement claims by third parties.
The firm intentionally limits its practice to intellectual property matters, believing that the interests of the client are best served when the client is able to select other counsel for its other business-related legal needs. The firm also frequently works closely with the client's other legal counsel when expertise in intellectual property law is required.
