Intellectual Property Lawyers in Seattle

Intellectual Property Services

Securing legal protection for your intellectual property is crucial in any business landscape. The experienced intellectual property attorneys at The Apex Law Group can assist with trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and rights of publicity for both for-profit and nonprofit entities. The services that we provide includes the following: 

Registration of Intellectual Property

We can assist with registering trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office or the Secretary of State. In doing this we prepare due diligence memorandums to ensure that your desired brand name or logo is not going to infringe on a pre-existing trademark. Our services also include drafting the trademark application, filing that application, assisting with any Office Actions, Oppositions, or other requests from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, as well as filing renewal applications and Declarations of Use for trademarks registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. 

The Apex Law Group can assist in filing with the United States Copyright Office applications for copyright registration. Successfully navigating the copyright registration process establishes a clear record of ownership, enhances the ability to enforce rights, and serves as a crucial foundation for defending against unauthorized use.

Establishing Digital Protections through Website Terms of Service and Privacy Policies 

Every website should indicate users’ rights when interacting with a website, just as every entity should explain if it collects data, and if so, what is done with the data collected. We can assist in drafting terms of service and privacy policies for your website that explain how you define users’ rights and handle your data. The privacy policies that are drafted will ensure compliance with relevant laws, which may include the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), or any other specific legal requirement. We will also assist you in drafting a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) policy for your website, act as your registered DMCA Agent, and assist in responding to DMCA takedown requests. 

Selling, Buy, Licensing, or Enforcing Intellectual Property Rights.

We assist both for-profits and nonprofits in crafting agreements for trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and Rights of Publicity. Specifically, we draw upon our vast experience to assist you in developing the best way for you to utilize your intellectual property. This could involve selling the intellectual property to another party, granting another party the right to use the intellectual property for some durations, or buying intellectual property from another party. If we are contemplating a sale, then Apex Law Group will assist with negotiating, drafting documents, and even filing transfer documents with the appropriate governing body. In licensing agreements, we can ensure the correct part maintains the rights to the results of the license. We want to ensure that you have the correct legal rights to any project you want to undertake. 

Also, we have specific experience with tax-exempt nonprofits and how the Internal Revenue Service regulations address intellectual property. These regulations place additional burdens on tax-exempt entities when interacting with entities that do not have tax-exempt status. Finally, we will issue cease and desist letters for identified infringements of your trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, or Rights of Publicity. After the initial cease and desist letter, we will engage with any infringers with litigation in mind.
