At Loeb & Loeb, we understand that for many of our clients, their intellectual property is their greatest asset. We help our clients establish, acquire, and protect, as well as develop and implement strategies to manage, their IP portfolios.
Our intellectual property team is comprised of both transactional and litigation attorneys who are capable of handling virtually every type of intellectual property matter. We focus our practice on:
- Trademarks, copyrights and patents
- IP and entertainment litigation
- Rights of publicity and privacy
- Patent litigation and prosecution
- Consumer branding and marketing
We represent intellectual property owners in complex transactions and high-stakes disputes. We regularly assist clients with mergers and acquisitions, due diligence, intellectual property audits, asset-based financing, licenses and agreements, valuations, joint ventures and e-commerce issues. We represent clients in all aspects of patent law, including litigation, prosecution, licensing and counseling.
Because we work closely with our corporate, tax, litigation, advertising, entertainment, media, employment, real estate and trusts and estates attorneys, our clients benefit from our multidisciplinary legal and business experience. In addition to establishing and protecting our clients' intellectual property portfolios, we frequently litigate before federal and state courts, as well as before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Our attorneys also litigate import-related IP disputes in the International Trade Commission and government-related patent disputes in the Court of Federal Claims.
Clients and Industries
Our clients include entertainment studios, music recording and publishing companies, advertising agencies, media companies, financial institutions, insurance companies, manufacturers and consumer products companies, trade associations and individuals.
