PATENT

Our patent attorneys offer domestic and foreign legal services that span the entire patent process, including, for example, developing patent strategies, mapping competitors, prosecuting applications, and using pre- and post-issuance procedures to bolster your rights and erode others' rights.  Further, we add value through comprehensive portfolio management, with our base goals being to help clients receive uniform prosecution from country-to-country, complementary protection, and a return on IP investment.

 

TRADEMARK

A trademark is a source-identifier that can lead directly to sales, customer loyalty, and word-of-mouth marketing. Rao DeBoer Osterrieder can help you obtain and protect your rights by working with you on filing domestic and foreign applications, responding to office actions, defending and lodging oppositions, cancellations, and appeals.  We work with clients to develop a trademark strategy that is tailored to their business, and help determine which marks would be best suited for registration.

 

COPYRIGHT

In the last two decades, easy internet access and the growth of file-sharing and social networking have led to the widespread distribution of copyright-protected works in digital form.  We help content owners understand what it means to be “online," and we work with clients in registration, notice and takedown, and other related enforcement matters.

 

COUNSELING

Intellectual property is often our clients' most valuable asset and raises the most complex issues.  At Rao DeBoer Osterrieder, we place significant emphasis on our relationship through cost-effective counseling of clients. If you are just getting started, one of our IP specialists can meet with you in a Free Consultation.  It does not matter if you have a basic question or require extensive legal service.  We are here.
