Intellectual Propery Law
Miltner & Menck’s intellectual property practice evolved from the needs of its construction contractor and small business clients for assistance with copyright, trademark, and trade secret issues, as well as unfair competition litigation. Small and growing businesses commonly need to protect their company logos, mottos, advertisements, and trade secrets. Quality intellectual property advice can assist growing businesses in prioritizing their core intellectual resources, considering their competition, the markets, and applicable law. Mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and the formation of new related entities, also entail a need to provide for the transfer, retention, or permissions to use intellectual property rights of one or more affected entities. Miltner & Menck, APC, and its predecessor firms, Miltner, Polk & Menck, Miltner Law Group and Perkins & Miltner, have also enjoyed success in litigating a variety of intellectual property issues. Small businesses often encounter litigation over such matters as a former partner’s or former employee’s use of trade secret information, the infringement of a growing company’s patents, and copyright infringement affecting promotional brochures, advertisements and websites. The firm also provides advice to clients facing intellectual property threats, enabling them to better assess the importance of the threat so that they can respond in an effective and cost-effective manner.
