Intellectual property laws are designed to legally protect your inventions, brands, and original works of authorship. The intrinsic functions of intellectual property laws are important for a free society and free enterprise economy. Intellectual property laws are designed to promote innovation, fair competition, and other key elements that make a free enterprise system function ethically and move forward. At Larson Patent Law, our staff is prepared to help you with any intellectual property litigation, as well as prosecution of patents, trademarks, and copyrights.

One of the most important things to understand about intellectual property rights is that while an individual or business can obtain a patent, trademark, or copyright without representation, that course of action is not recommended due to the complicated nature of the prosecution procedures. The application process for patents, trademarks, and copyrights all have nuances that are difficult to understand and navigate without a thorough understanding of the laws and the procedure.

For patent matters, it is recommended that you obtain the services of a patent attorney who will draft your application, file your paperwork, and handle any refusals from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

If is also recommended, and in some cases required, that you or your business hire an attorney experienced in federal litigation when enforcing or defending intellectual property litigation matters.

Legal representation in trademark matters is also important. For example, if you are a local business with a registered Trademark that trademark represents your company, your brand, and the goods and services associated with your business. This is equally true in the world of e-commerce. Without proper trademark protection, you could be losing product recognition, customers, and revenue to competitors throughout a vast digital landscape. If your business becomes involved in Trademark infringement matters, it is recommended that you retain an experienced intellectual property litigation firm to represent you.
