Safeguard and Leverage Your IP
In today’s global, service economy, a business’ creative works and brand are often its most valuable assets. Intellectual property theft and leakage costs U.S. companies billions of dollars every year. On the flip-side, unwittingly infringing another’s intellectual property can cost a business tens of thousands of dollars and its management massive migraines, sleepless nights, and lost inertia. We can help.
