We’re located in metropolitan Washington, D.C. and are near the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the U.S. Copyright Office. We use the latest and more secure services to file your trademark, patent and copyright applications, both domestically and internationally.

Our intellectual property team is comprised of professors, engineers, scientists, and entrepreneurs. They bring that knowledge to all aspects of their representation–from pre-filing due diligence such as patent and trademark clearance searches and opinions, to responding to office actions and settling and litigating infringement disputes. Our intellectual property lawyers aren’t afraid to stand up for your rights. While we aim to settle disputes through negotiation, our team is skilled in infringement litigation and offers world-class representation in court.
