What good is having or creating something new and valuable if you don't protect it?
This is why businesses and others with high-stakes intellectual property turn to Hemenway & Barnes. Our attorneys are experienced in all matters involving ownership, licensing and structural safeguards. We regularly work with clients -- domestic as well as global -- that develop software and systems for various industries, including interactive television, health care informatics and health payment solutions.
Sometimes a business or investor doesn't know or fully appreciate what they have. It's important, therefore, for our business attorneys to audit our clients' IP assets, whether it comprises the company's technology, work product or something else.
Branding of identities, products and services has become critical for success in a global marketplace. Accordingly, our clients look to us for IP solutions, including trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights and patent licensing. We also work with our business clients to establish policies, agreements and government registrations to protect their intellectual property.
