Some of the most valuable assets of companies or individuals are their intellectual property (IP) rights.
With offices in Indiana, Illinois and Ohio, Ice Miller's IP Group helps clients acquire, protect, and defend their IP rights worldwide.
We offer a full range of intellectual property legal services, including preparation, filing and prosecution of patent, trademark and copyright applications in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and in foreign countries. We also prepare and negotiate licenses and other contracts for protection of IP assets here and abroad, and litigate patent, trademark, copyright, antitrust, trade secret, right of publicity, and unfair competition issues in state and federal courts of the United States of America.
Ice Miller also assists clients in obtaining, protecting, enforcing and defending computer-related technology assets, including software, domain names and Web site content. We also draft, negotiate, enforce and defend, license, distribution, employment and asset transfer agreements specific to these rights as well as the overall rights of companies and individuals.
Our IP Group includes registered patent attorneys with decades of experience in assisting our clients with their intellectual property needs and issues on a cost-effective basis. When necessary, we enforce or defend those rights at the trial and appellate levels in state and federal courts, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Our Group also includes attorneys with industry experience and advanced degrees in technology and business.
