Our Practice in Intellectual Property Law

The Feldman Law Group offers a comprehensive portfolio of intellectual property services for a broad range of U.S. domestic and global clients. We offer advice, counseling, and litigation services for U.S. patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and related intellectual property issues.

Patents, Trademarks, and Copyrights

Our attorneys prosecute and litigate intellectual property rights in patents, trademarks, and copyrights. We offer services through the full life cycle of creating, defending and maintaining IP rights, including the following services:

1. Application

Our lawyers will thoroughly evaluate your situation and advise you regarding the most effective way to protect your business. If you decide to apply for a patent, trademark, or copyright, we perform initial legal research and investigate the facts. Then we prepare and file your application for registration with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) or the U.S. Copyright Office. Not only do we file patents in the U.S. but we can file your patent, copyright or trademark in Europe, Asia, South Asia, Japan, Canada and South America.

2. Prosecution

After an application is filed, the USPTO or the Copyright Office carefully reviews it and often requests additional information. During this review, we offer prosecution services. As part of these services, we handle inquiries from the USPTO or Copyright Office and counsel you on the most effective response. We also help you gather and submit any additional documentation requested by these agencies.

3. Enforcement

Once you have obtained a patent, trademark, or copyright, we help you enforce your rights against infringers. If another company or individual is copying your design, invention, or other creative work, we help you evaluate the misconduct and plan a course of action. Alternatives include issuing a cease and desist letter, submitting pre-lawsuit settlement discussions, filing a lawsuit, or seeking injunctive relief.  We routinely litigate intellectual property infringement cases and help develop innovative and effective solutions to protect your intellectual property rights. 

4. Maintenance

Patent and trademark registrations must be maintained once they are issued. We offer portfolio management services and handle maintenance and renewal filings on your behalf.

5. Transactional Services

Feldman Law Group offers transactional services to help you generate revenue by allowing others to use your intellectual property rights. Our experienced IP lawyers can help you develop a licensing strategy and negotiate appropriate agreements. We advise clients in areas related to patents, trademarks, and copyrights, including unfair competition, trade dress and trade secrets.

Areas We Serve

While our location allows us to focus in the metropolitan New York City area, including New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, we practice in federal courts throughout the U.S. and have actively litigated in California, Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, and other states.
