Intellectual Property (IP), which can consist of trademarks, trade secrets, patents and copyrights, is the cornerstone of every technology company. Having an IP strategy is critical to providing leverage over your company’s competitors and being able to monetize your company’s ideas.
Shaw Tech Law will sit down with your technical team and derive what is new, interesting and different about your business/technology idea. We will also sit down with your business team and assess what your biggest challenges are with regards to competition. We then create a plan/set of recommendations which are designed to protect your ideas from your competitors and derive the best monetization from your technology offering.
For trade secret protection, we will draft the required company documents, such as non-disclosure agreements between your employees, customers, suppliers and other third parties, in compliance with State and Federal laws. Additionally, we will prepare a trade secret procedure your company must follow to ensure its trade secrets remain protected.
For trademark and copyright registration, we will prepare and file all necessary documentation with the appropriate federal government entities. For patents, we will collaborate with a Patent Attorney to facilitate any required filings with the US Patent and Trademark Office.
