There are many factors to consider in the early stages of a start-up business, and how you plan to protect your intellectual property should be one of those factors. Securing a registered trademark for your business name and any product names, filing a patent application(s) for any patentable product(s), and possibly even copyrighting creative works related to your start-up are all important steps in setting your business up for success in terms of your IP. These steps may seem overwhelming in an already busy time, but hiring an experienced IP attorney can help reduce your stress while ensuring proper IP protection measures are put in place.
Some of our team members have personal experience with their own start-up businesses, so we understand your circumstances and can relate to the excitement, and also stress, of this process. We know first-hand that it may be easy to focus on other aspects of getting your business off the ground, without putting in the time and money to secure IP protection. We're here to work with you to make sure that your IP is protected so that you can spend more time on business and product development, and less time trying to learn how to draft a patent or trademark application or dealing with the USPTO.
Our team is excited to learn about the inspiration behind your new business, where you stand now, and your goals for the future. We look forward to hearing about your finished products, products currently in development, and ideas for future products so that we can map out an IP strategy tailored to your business. Whether you have a large or small budget for IP, we can work with you to determine the best path forward for protecting your IP.
