How Poole Shaffery Can Help
The firm can represent individuals and business owners, as well as corporations and educational organizations in intellectual property litigation, patents and trademarks, copyright infringements, as well as the registration and patent applications for new products. The initial action in protecting intellectual property is to attain protectable status. This essential part of the process must be undertaken as early as possible, particularly in cases in which the product or process has been observed or understood by others, whether in a corporate or scientific setting.
Intellectual property can be the most valuable asset of any corporation, business or individual creator. The protection of this asset can be expensive, as well as involve a number of complex legal processes and applications. The firm takes on the responsibility of attaining protectable status with the objective of assisting the creator to get protection as quickly as possible while focusing on avoiding excessive or prohibitive costs.
The firm has contacts in a range of technical industries that may be necessary to gain legal protection. If there has already been an infringement of a protected product or process, the firm has gained a strong reputation in intellectual property litigation, and stands prepared to assist creators and corporations, based upon the details of the infringement, and the subsequent damages to the owner.
