We can help determine what protection you need.

Intellectual property is an incredibly complex area of the law, and non-lawyers can have difficulty determining whether they need intellectual property protection and what type of protection they may be able to obtain. With decades of experience, however, we can quickly identify the protection you should consider, whether it’s a trademark, a patent, or some other safeguard.

We can guide you through the registration process.

Once you have decided to protect your intellectual property, the next step is to file the necessary application to register. These processes can be complicated, and a simple mistake or an incomplete application can result in delays or rejection. We work with our clients side-by-side to prepare and file the application. We then actively monitor your application to respond quickly to any requests for clarification or additional information. The result is that you get the protection you need as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

Aggressive litigation attorneys on your side.

Unfortunately, simply registering your intellectual property isn’t always enough to adequately protect your ideas. Whether intentional or unintentional, others may seek to use your ideas and claim them as their own, looking to turn a profit from your hard work. If that time comes, our seasoned litigators take aggressive action to protect the value of your intellectual property. While we always explore every opportunity for a reasonable settlement, our attorneys have the experience and skill to litigate the matter in court to ensure your protection. More importantly, we know how to get the results you need when you need them.

Our intellectual property law experience spans decades—and industries.

From international orthopedic manufacturers to artists, from RV manufacturers to architects, we’ve helped clients across industries defend their patents, file and protect their trademarks and copyrights, and—most importantly—maximize the commercial potential of their ideas in the marketplace. SouthBank attorneys collaborate closely to ensure we bring our entire team’s experience and expertise to bear on your case. The result? A track record in intellectual property law that speaks for itself.
