Intellectual Property

Primary Practice Contact: Keith A. Call

Due to modern technology, a company’s intangible intellectual property is more vulnerable than ever before to competitors and thieves.

When your intellectual property rights are threatened or violated, SCM attorneys use their extensive technical and legal experience to protect your important innovations and maintain your competitive advantage.

We help our clients defend against infringement or license breaches or, alternatively, bring an action on behalf of an owner or licensee of intellectual property. We defend our clients’ rights in state and federal trial and appeals courts, as well as government agencies and arbitration panels.

SCM provides intellectual property protection services to high-tech companies, life sciences companies, manufacturers, financial institutions, universities and performing artists. In particular, SCM attorneys represent business owners and developers in resolving software development issues and complex software licensing issues.

The technology at issue in intellectual property litigation can be intricate and complex. As a result, communication with the judge, jury, or other neutral arbiter is critical. Our intellectual property attorneys excel at communicating complicated concepts of fact and law clearly and persuasively.When intellectual property is involved in other kinds of litigation, such as business dissolution or bankruptcy proceedings, our attorneys assist with an accurate valuation of these intangible assets.
