Oliver Building Pittsburgh

We support clients’ business goals, objectives and commercial relationships through the strategic acquisition, protection, licensing and enforcement of intellectual property rights.

Each client has unique business goals and objectives.  Focusing on those stated priorities, we coordinate a strategic plan for obtaining, leveraging and enforcing patents, trademarks, trade secrets and copyrights, both in the United States and abroad with those goals and objectives.

We provide this strategic support through the business-centric documentation 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.
