Oliver Building Pittsburgh

We counsel clients on the acquisition, protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights. We support clients’ commercial relationships involving development, protection and licensing of technological assets.

We obtain, maintain, enforce and help our clients strategically leverage their patents, trademarks, trade secrets and copyrights, both in the United States and abroad, with an eye toward each client’s unique business goals and objectives. We assist in the negotiation, creation and documention of commercial transactions relating to intellectual property assets, including licenses, assignments, non-disclosure, confidentiality, joint venture, joint development and distribution agreements. We work closely with each client’s legal team, both within the firm and other counselors, in corporate mergers, acquisitions and financing where intellectual property, technological and data assets are involved. We also provide counseling with regard to employment and HR policies relating to IP and proprietary information.

Our group litigates intellectual property, computer and other technology-related disputes in federal and state courts, in administrative proceedings before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the United States International Trade Commission, and other public and private alternative dispute resolution tribunals including mediation and arbitration.

The members of our group are experienced in a wide variety of technical and industrial areas, including medical devices, fintech, materials sciences, manufacturing, metallurgy, oil and gas, biotechnology, health and information systems.
