IP Counsel

Intellectual property is the core of business today – protecting it is a priority. IP Counsel covers a wide range of topics from single innovation to large corporate IP issues.
Intellectual property matters are relevant to multinational corporations, mid-sized companies, early-stage, and venture-backed companies, as well as entrepreneurs and investors. The goal is to provide expert counsel in all areas of intellectual property (IP) and related transactions.
