A patent grants the patentee the right to forbid others from making, using, or selling the patentee's novel invention. Patents and patent licenses are a powerful tool in the quest to attain and hold a competitive edge in the technology marketplace.  George Pappas and Connor Fleck are a licensed Patent Attorneys and can represent clients before the U.S. Patent Office, including the filing and prosecution of patent applications.

Copyrights protect specific expressions of ideas, such as software, photographs, music, books, and videos. As software rights and licensing become increasingly important aspects of maintaining a competitive edge, the nuances of copyright law are becoming a vital part of the business decision-making process in many industries. We are experienced in copyright law, licensing, and infringement litigation.

Trademarks and Trade Dress

Protecting the integrity of brands and business names can be every bit as important as protecting physical assets. Trademark and trade dress law provides an avenue for businesses to prohibit their competitors from taking improper advantage of their well-known names and hard-earned reputations. We are experienced in trademark and trade dress law, including registration, protection, enforcement, and infringement litigation.

Trade Secrets

A core part of a business's value is knowledge, especially knowledge that is not known to its competitors. The importance of information security cannot be overstated. Trade secrets protection helps prevent the disclosure of valuable information and know-how. We are experienced in maximizing trade secret protection and, when necessary, using litigation to prevent unauthorized disclosures.
