Our intellectual property law clients are diverse in industry and experience, ranging from start-ups to large, well-established companies. As such, our intellectual property group has developed a well-rounded, innovative approach to intellectual property procurement.
A significant part of our intellectual property law practice involves helping our clients maximize their intellectual property assets while minimizing the risks of liability. Our team of attorneys helps our clients align their intellectual property procurement with their overall business goals.
The Smith Hurst intellectual property law team is enhanced by its partnership with our taxation attorneys, mergers and acquisition attorneys, information technology attorneys, and corporate law and corporate transactions attorneys to provide counsel and solutions for a proactive approach in seeking intellectual property protection for later transactions or licensing opportunities.
