Intellectual property describes a work that is created through some type of creativity, eg. trademarks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets. While often overlooked or misunderstood by business owners, intellectual property is likely the highest valued asset or assets that a company owns. When left unprotected, the value in the intellectual property diminishes, and often can be lost forever. Creating and protecting an intellectual property portfolio is the key to value maximization for any company.
The first step to protecting any intellectual property is understanding the different areas of intellectual property law. The second step is identifying the intellectual property assets in your company. Once identified, a skilled and knowledgeable attorney in the intellectual property field can best advise how to protect the identified assets. Jameson focuses its intellectual property practice mainly on trademarks and copyrights.
Once a company’s intellectual property has been protected, it becomes the responsibility of the company to defend its rights in the assets. Such monitoring can become burdensome. It is important to have the right individuals on your side in continuing to protect your assets. Attorney Trey Jameson received his Master of Laws in Intellectual Property, and focuses much of his practice in this area. If you have questions regarding the status of your company’s assets, please contact Jameson Law to schedule an asset review and consultation.
