Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce. IP is protected through laws creating, for example, patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, IP law aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish. Intellectual property protection involves the enforcement of the creators rights.
The attorneys at Lustig & Wickert are experienced in a wide variety of intellectual property protection. We have successfully handled the prosecution and defense of patent, copyright, trademark, and trade dress infringement claims. We also have extensive experience in trade secret protection.
Lustig & Wickert brings real world regulatory and trial experience to intellectual property protection and litigation. Often intellectual property lawyers have the technical knowledge but become bogged down in the technical aspects of the case. As trial attorneys, we can simplify complex issues so a jury can understand them. We have been engaged by intellectual property attorneys as co-counsel to handle the trial of patent and trade secret matters. Our lawyers have been involved in cases as diverse as distillation equipment design, computer software, ceramic welding, and folding chair design.
