Whether our clients are selling their own designs or licensing from others, the protection of their intellectual property (IP) is critical. Thus, we help clients to ensure that “work for hire” remains company property; to protect proprietary designs, devices, and methods; appropriately tailor licenses to business imperatives; and to avoid potential liability for the infringement of others’ IP rights. Moreover, in the home decor, furniture, and textile fields, we have distinguished ourselves as a go-to firm for IP protection, enforcement, and transactions.
