Intellectual Property as a Business Asset

Helping businesses in Miami-Dade County and throughout the State of Florida in legal matters related to IP rights procurement, IP rights protection, and IP commercialization

Intellectual property (patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets) can be a very important business asset.  For start-up companies, intellectual property rights may be their only major business asset. Troy and Schwartz is committed to assisting its business clients in:

  • Obtaining intellectual property protections.
  • Protecting the business’ intellectual property from unauthorized usage/infringement through appropriate legal means  including legal action.
  • Working with clients to commercially exploit their intellectual property through licensing and assignment agreements.
  • Ensuring that any and all intellectual property, which may be invented/created by employees and/or independent contractors, will indeed belong to the business.

Our business attorneys also advise persons/business entities who/which are considering purchasing, investing, and/or merging with another business on intellectual property transfer issues.  Intellectual property can be an extremely valuable asset and we work with such clients to help ensure:

  1. They will indeed acquire the anticipated valuable intellectual property rights through the acquisition or purchase of a business
  2. They will understand any associated and/or reasonably anticipated liabilities or encumbrances associated with the IP should the IP be transferred to them
  3. They are clear as to the remaining “protection time” associated with the transferred IP.

Our intellectual property attorney has extensive previous experience in the development of complex, innovative products in the life sciences industry from concept through market release and brings a pragmatic business sense to managing intellectual property issues and maximizing intellectual property value in the context of product development risks and product performance risks.
