Your business deserves legal counsel that can help identify, nurture, protect, and enforce your ongoing IP rights – because IP is about more than just patents and trademarks or copyright, it is about the people, the culture, and the bouts of inspiration that may one day define the future of your business success.

Always responsive to client needs and priorities, ELO's intellectual property practice consistently delivers high-quality, practical analyses and advice rooted in real-world experience. Maximizing and protecting the value of your intellectual portfolio requires a comprehensive, practical strategy led by competent counsel you can trust.

In its broadest terms, Intellectual Property refers to a bundle of exclusive legal rights conferred to an owner/creator over their inventions, brand names, creative and expressive works, or trade secrets. Each unique type of IP presents its own distinct set of rights and challenges to protection and enforcement. Namely, there are four core types of IP: Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights, and Trade Secrets.

In addition to core IP areas, ELO advises clients with respect to protection of trade secrets, unfair competition and false advertising. We have experience drafting and negotiating licenses, development agreements, non-disclosure agreements and other agreements for use with business partners of all types.

The Focus of Our Practice:

  • Patent Trademark and Trade Dress Opinions IP Transactions & Licensing
  • IP Development
  • Trade secrets
  • Unfair competition
  • Copyright
  • Domain names
