Who We WOrk WIth

Intellectual Property Lawyers

At Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, our team is comprised of professors, engineers, scientists, and entrepreneurs who leverage their legal knowledge and technical expertise to help clients achieve their business objectives while securing and protecting their intellectual property rights. We also provide insights into the valuation of IP assets for clients who are looking to engage in mergers and acquisitions and other related transactions.

Given the technological advances that shape every industry and the rapidly evolving intellectual property landscape, it is crucial for innovators to protect their ideas and inventions by securing patents, trademarks and copyrights. Although the America Invents Act, and more recently, the Defend Trade Secrets Act, were designed to enhance the protection of intellectual property rights in the United States, technology continues to outpace the law. The intellectual property law group at Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig is poised to help our clients meet the challenges of the 21st Century.

Whether you are looking to introduce new products into the marketplace, establish a brand identity, or build a portfolio of patents or trademarks, it is crucial to mitigate the risk of infringement. Our experienced attorneys work closely with clients through all phases of securing intellectual property rights, from conceptualization to launch. We routinely conduct patent and trademark searches, assist with patent and trademark prosecution, and represent clients in proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and state and federal courts as the need dictates.
