The identity of your business, what you sell, and how you distinguish yourself are all a large part of your success. Protecting your intellectual property is one of the most important steps toward preparing your business for success because it ensures that another entity cannot benefit from the brand or products you’ve worked so hard to develop.
At the Law Office of Craig Ching, PC, we can help determine what aspects of your intellectual property to protect. Our priority will be giving you high-quality business and commercial legal services you can rely on in addition to building a solid relationship that will result in you always having access to a business attorney you can count on.
Protect the Elements of Your Success
Protecting your intellectual property is crucial for any business. Copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and licensing can play a critical role in safeguarding your logos, survey results, product names, and artistic works. As a business owner, it is important to understand these different forms of protection and take the necessary steps to ensure your intellectual property is properly safeguarded. Intellectual property consists of a variety of things critical to the economic success of your business, including:
- Brand names, logos, and other images associated with a business
- Company slogans or catchphrases
- Recipes or formulas
- Licensing software
- Lists of customers, research, and survey results
- Artistic items such as pieces of writing, images, paintings, music, and more
In addition, if you’re in the process of attaining another business, merging your business, or selling a business, you may need to work with an attorney to transfer intellectual property rights.
Our detail-oriented lawyer will ensure your application for copyrights and trademarks is sound and can withstand scrutiny. As an added protection, we can help draft and review existing contracts to ensure your intellectual property is safe from trade secret theft by employees and business partners. If you are seeking ways to safeguard your company's identity and brand, we can help.
