Intellectual Property

At FSG, our Intellectual Property Practice Group actively engages in the procurement, protection, exploitation and enforcement of intellectual property rights, providing advice and counseling in trademark, copyright, trade dress and unfair competition matters, both domestically and abroad. As a result of decades of practical experience, our attorneys can assist clients in obtaining the appropriate intellectual property registrations to achieve their business objectives on a cost-effective basis.

Trademarks and service marks are important assets and marketing tools which identify product source and convey goodwill. We have vast experience in prosecuting trademark applications, handling opposition and cancellation actions with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, as well as routinely registering copyrights with the U.S. Copyright Office. Internationally, the Intellectual Property Practice Group works with a network of trusted intellectual property attorneys to secure rights to trademarks and copyrights on a worldwide basis.  In addition to the registration of intellectual property, our attorneys work with numerous clients actively in involved in trademark licensing, both as licensors and licensees, domestically and throughout the world.

Along with registration and licensing, our Intellectual Property Practice Group necessarily works to enforce and protect our clients’ trademarks and copyrights, pursuing and responding to trademark and copyright infringement claims and litigating numerous matters involving intellectual property rights and their violation in the U.S. and internationally.

FSG attorneys are also adept in the legal aspects of the Internet, including web site development agreements, intellectual property “clearance” issues relating to uses of intellectual property on the Internet, and right of publicity matters. Further, our attorneys have assisted in the preparation and administration of anti-counterfeiting programs, including obtaining court orders for seizures, as well as other appropriate injunctive relief, working with police or other government agencies.

Whether you are looking to file your first trademark application for a new business or need assistance dealing with the infringement of your company’s trademark rights on the other side of the world, our FSG Intellectual Property Practice Group attorneys can provide you with practical and economical advice on a vast range of intellectual property matters.
