Dallas Intellectual Property Attorney

Contrary to other courtroom trends, intellectual property litigation has grown explosively in Texas and nationally. As Texas intellectual property lawyers, we recognize and help our clients protect the value of their inventions, designs, strategies, systems and methods. Some businesses try to use the law to initiate patent, copyright, trademark and trade secret litigation to protect themselves by limiting competition. Too often, start-up and small businesses find themselves on the wrong end of intellectual property litigation, which some companies use as leverage to stifle innovation and competition.
