Intellectual Property Protection

From patent filings, trademarks, copyright applications, trade secrets, and licensing and technology transfers, our attorneys provide IP portfolio management services identifying, obtaining, and protecting valuable intellectual property. DBL’s IP lawyers manage IP portfolios of every size, from individual inventors and authors of creative works to private companies and large government agencies such as the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Homeland Security.

We are different from mega-firms and small boutique IP firms.  At mega-firms clients often pay for infrastructure and services they don’t need.  Small IP boutique law firms, on the other hand, usually have practices limited only to intellectual property.  Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig is a full-service national firm with practice areas, including, among others, corporate law, litigation, employment, business, government contracts, and bankruptcy.  We rely on cutting-edge technology for cloud-based management of IP filings and dockets creating a powerful large-firm infrastructure while obviating the need for massive overhead.

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig’s IP lawyers will register your ideas and products with the government to ensure that patents, trademarks, and copyrights are secured so that you’re protected.  Among the services we offer are:
