Charney IP Law concentrates its practice on intellectual property law. Our primary focus is on identifying, protecting, licensing, and enforcing intellectual property rights. At the same time, we also help clients steer clear of others’ rights.
Our diverse client array runs the gamut from multinational corporations to small ongoing entities, startups, and last but certainly not least, individual inventors. We are just as comfortable assisting intellectual property savvy in-house counsel as we are with the professional that is still learning about intellectual property assets. In fact, we pride ourselves on our ability to educate, and therefore enable, our clients.
We see our role as providing strategic advice and representation throughout the complete lifecycle of our clients’ existence, from research and development of products and services, to financing, marketing, licensing, and, if necessary, regulatory approval and the enforcement of the rights obtained. We regularly work with our clients’ general business counsel to provide comprehensive and cohesive representation.
All of the solutions we provide are in view of our clients’ ultimate business goals and budgets. While we always offer and pride ourselves upon a premium level of service, we work with our clients to tailor that service for their needs, means, and risk tolerance.
Among the areas of intellectual property that we focus on are:
identification and development of patentable aspects of our clients’ businesses
patent opinion work, including patentability, freedom-to-operate, invalidity, and state of the art opinions
trademark counseling, registration and prosecution
copyright registration and counseling
licensing and negotiation
providing guidance to avoid infringing of others’ intellectual property rights
intellectual property litigation
