Patent

A patent provides its owner with the right to exclude others from making, using or selling the claimed invention. Gulick law has extensive experience in obtaining patents for inventions in fields as diverse as computer hardware and software, medical devices, consumer products, wireless telecommunications and aviation. The firm’s experience extends beyond practicing before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to include navigating the numerous requirements for obtaining patent protection internationally.
A strong patent position may be the key to your business’ success and the fundamental source of its value. Patents are highly complex and technically sophisticated documents that are, by definition, unique. To prepare a strong, enforceable patent, your attorney must not only be a proven expert in the law, but must fully understand your business’ unique industry and technology. Whatever your patent strategy demands, our team is dedicated to making your innovations our priority.
Our patent services include:
Drafting patent applications and conducting prior art searches
  • Rendering patent validity and infringement opinions
  • Conducting appeals, reexaminations and post-grant proceedings
  • Securing protection in foreign countries
  • Preparing corporate policies and procedures to minimize exposure to patent infringement claims and to enhance corporate value

Trademark

Build a strong brand that reflects your business identity and protect it the proper way
For many businesses, the most valuable asset is its good name.  We can help you secure a word, logo or design that will be strongly identified with your product, service or business activity.
We conduct clearance searches to ensure your trademark is protectable and does not conflict with existing marks. We register marks in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, state offices, as well as international trademark offices. We can monitor a competitor’s improper use of your mark and take appropriate action when needed.

 

Our trademark services include:

 

  • Advising clients in the selection of new names for services and products for trademark
  • Registering, maintaining, and litigating trademark rights in the United States and throughout the world
  • Representation in trademark infringement lawsuits applications
  • Licensing and transfers of ownership
  • Initiating and defending trademark opposition and trademark cancellation proceedings in the Patent and Trademark Office
Copyrights

Copyright

Copyright protect your valuable artistic, musical, literary, audiovisual, and software expressions.
Copyrights provide the right to prevent others from making additional copies of the copyrighted work and also the right to prevent others from making works that are mere derivatives of the copyrighted work. The value of copyright registrations should not be underestimated, as it allows for the recovery of attorney’s fees and statutory damages in the event of infringement of the copyright.  If a question arises about whether a work is the subject of an existing copyright, Gulick Law can research the matter, provide authoritative answers, and explain to the client the standards used to determine copyright infringement.

Internet Law

Domain name disputes, typosquatting and cybersquatting are an area of concern for our clients who are trying to prevent imposters from taking advantage of their hard work.

 

We use tools like ICANN’s Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) to expedite the transfer of domain names acquired in bad faith by cybersquatters. By expending the procedure, not only do we achieve the desired results fast but we also do so at a minimal cost.
Patent Litigation

Litigation

Like a solid, well-built car, all IP rights depend on effective enforcement. We provide exceptional representation in protecting your intellectual property rights, support, advise, and drive your case to a successful conclusion.
Litigation can be lengthy and costly, so to avoid inappropriate litigation, we delve in to the case, weigh all strategies available and weigh the pros and cons and likelihood of success for each strategy.  To settle intellectual property disputes such as patent infringement, trademark infringement, trade secret theft, trade dress infringement and copyright infringement we use alternative dispute methods such as negotiations, mediation and arbitration. Our attorneys have experience with federal courts, state courts, and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Should your case go to trial, our experience attorneys are committed to keeping your goals in mind, solving the matter as promptly as possible and in a cost-effective manner.
