Hendricks & Lewis helps our software and Internet clients protect and use their own intellectual property without infringing on the rights of others. We assist with copyright and trademark registrations, and the development of trade secret procedures and protocols. We collaborate with patent counsel, where appropriate. To avoid potential disputes, we evaluate and analyze website content and materials for a wide variety of issues, including copyright, trademark, defamation, rights of publicity, privacy, and unfair business practices, and help clients obtain the appropriate releases and permissions. We can be particularly helpful for clients with active websites, domain names and trademark issues, and those who engage in substantial advertising or operate as forums for public interaction.

In addition to generally applying our litigation, intellectual property, business practice and contract skills, we negotiate, draft and review development agreements, licenses, transfer agreements, and joint venture and strategic partnering arrangements. In this quickly evolving field it is important to have attorneys like those at Hendricks & Lewis, who are up-to-date on the latest developments in the law and use of trademarks.
