License & Protection of Intellectual Property

BETTER INGENUITY Takes ideas from concept to reality

Your ideas, inventions and brands are the lifeblood of your business. Properly protecting what you built is paramount to your success today and into the future. We counsel clients on key aspects of their intellectual property including trademarks, copyrights, trade dress, patents and the licensing encompassing each of these areas.

Building Your Brand

We draw on our vast experience and resources to work efficiently, collaboratively and creatively with you to build your brand. We tackle all aspects of trademark clearance, counseling prosecution and maintenance, both domestic and foreign, helping you secure and strengthen your brand and realize its value.

Protecting Your Brand’s Value

Your brand and the way it’s represented in the marketplace requires constant monitoring and diligent protection. Our attorneys help you enforce IP rights, including trademark, trade dress, copyright and unfair competition, leveraging the full resources of the HMB team in order to fully protect your rights.

Staying Clear of Trouble

Avoiding issues is as important as defending your rights when infringed. We help you identify instances when you may inadvertently violate a competitor’s rights and then take steps to help you work around potential issues with strategies that advance your goals.

Embracing What Makes You Unique

We champion your interests as entrepreneurs, engineers and scientists, and put that knowledge into action to determine the best means for protecting your inventions, methodologies and intellectual capital.
