Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property

Protect your creation. Build your brand. Monetize your asset.

Intellectual property is among the most valuable of corporate assets. At K&A, we combine IP knowledge with deal-making experience to advise clients on the strategic use of intellectual property. Whether it’s brand protection, licensing and buy-out agreements, portfolio management or enforcement – we offer a comprehensive range of services to meet our clients’ every IP need.

Essential to every business, properly developed and protected IP allows a company to build its brand by distinguishing its business, products, and services from those of its competitors – thereby eliminating consumer confusion. Ownership of IP also provides significant commercial benefits and market advantages by securing exclusive rights to new inventions and methods, protecting trade secrets and preventing competitors from capitalizing on your creative genius. Our team works closely with businesses in various industries to develop innovative strategies and dynamic solutions to ensure that their most valuable intangible assets are protected, adds value to the business, and maintains goodwill.

Litigation: Enforcement & Defense

ENFORCE YOUR RIGHTS!

Our IP enforcement services include serving cease & desist letters, litigation in State and Federal court, opposition/cancellation proceedings, arbitration, investigations, and settlement negotiations.

We are equally adept at defending clients facing allegations of infringement. In these instances, our representation transcends merely processing cease & desist letters and negotiating settlement payouts. Instead, we zealously advocate on behalf of clients to resolve disputes swiftly and securing the best possible outcome.
