Traversing the intellectual property gauntlet can be daunting.  Before embarking on the arduous and lengthy process towards obtaining intellectual property protection, you should know what you are getting into and whether intellectual property protection is necessary for your business goals.

While it is possible to obtain protection of your idea or mark on your own, there are many pitfalls that could frustrate your efforts and render any protection that you may obtain valueless towards achieving your goals.  There are many books available that can walk you through the process, and our firm encourages you to take the time to understand as much as you can about the legal protections available for your intellectual property.  Many people find that it is a much better use of their time and resources to hire a law firm such as ours to ensure their investment gets the professional attention it deserves.
