Intellectual Property

The attorneys of Reger Rizzo & Darnall’s Intellectual Property Group are dedicated to helping individuals and businesses develop, protect and enforce their intellectual property rights. Our team has extensive experience counseling clients in every aspect of trademark and copyright law. 

We understand the importance of increasing the value of your intellectual property portfolio. We also know that in order to achieve such profits, a  comprehensive and strategic plan must be established and directed by attorneys with the necessary skills and experience only available by a leader in the industry. At Reger Rizzo & Darnall, we offer clients a depth and breadth of experience unmatched by our industry counterparts. 

Our Services

Before adopting a trademark, we advise clients as to the likelihood of infringement with third parties and registration with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Our attorneys have significant experience in prosecuting applications for registration in the United States and, through our expansive network of affiliations, in foreign jurisdictions. Once registered, we provide the ongoing maintenance of the registration and enforce our clients’ rights through cease and desist letters and if necessary, litigation. Additionally, our attorneys have experience in litigating matters under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act.

Our Intellectual Property practice also includes registration appeals and opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. Similarly, we provide clearance and registration services for our clients’ creative works and maintain and enforce their copyrights against infringers. 

We also provide a full range of intellectual property licensing services and assist our clients in developing internal guidelines to better protect and enforce their rights, especially in the rapidly changing information age.
