IP & Emerging Technologies Law Practice

The risks and the opportunities associated with IP for technology developers have never been greater. In today's highly-integrated global economy, the failure to identify, protect and take maximum advantage of one's IP can mean the difference between a celebrated success and a rapid business failure.

For more than 30 years Litman Law has represented a wide variety of technology clients in patent, trademark, copyright and related IP matters. We have obtained over 5,000 U.S. patents and over 1,000 registered U.S. trademarks for our clients around the world. Our vast practical experience extends beyond identifying and protecting intellectual property to enabling our clients to maximize their return on their intellectual property investment. This experience includes developing all agreements necessary to obtain, develop, license and commercialize technology. We also provide related commercialization services including prototyping counseling, brand development, domain name dispute representation, infringement risk and avoidance counseling, and intellectual property due diligence. Our demonstrated and long-term success has earned us the highest peer review distinction by the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory: the Bar Register for Preeminent Lawyers.
