Intellectual Property

MH’s intellectual property attorneys have the skills and expertise to help their clients protect and enforce their valuable intellectual property rights. MH will zealously protect its clients’ rights to their brand names, their source code, their trade secrets and proprietary technologies, and any other assets and ideas. MH achieves extraordinary results for its clients in intellectual property matters ranging from routine trademark registrations to complex patent and trade secret litigation.

MH’s first goal is to ensure that its clients are taking the needed steps to protect their intellectual property before disputes arise. MH attorneys counsel with their clients, whether they be market leaders or startups, to help them identify and secure the protections they need. They understand how to minimize litigation risk and will formulate sensible legal strategies to advance their clients’ business goals and manage their intellectual property portfolios. MH helps its clients obtain trademark and copyright registrations, including handling trademark oppositions and office actions. MH consults with clients to ensure that they are taking steps to ensure that their proprietary technologies and trade secrets are protected. And MH will also help clients prosecute their applications to register patents with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

And when disputes arise, MH attorneys represent their clients in a wide range of intellectual property matters, and regularly secure excellent results from state and federal courts and arbitrators nationwide. With its breadth of experience and its deep bench, MH handles all aspects of trademark, copyright, patent, or trade secret litigation or arbitration disputes. MH attorneys litigate trade secret disputes on behalf of oil and gas companies and chemical manufacturers to defend their proprietary technologies. They also represent clients in complex patent litigation disputes and achieve key victories at Markman hearings. Whether it be preparing a simple cease and desist letter, or obtaining a copyright registration for source code, or litigating a complex dispute through trial and appeal, MH will vigorously advocate for its clients’ intellectual property rights.
