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 in law by, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, 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, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish.
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 trial experience to intellectual property 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 these technical issues so a jury can understand them. We have previously been engaged by intellectual property attorneys as co-counsel to handle the trial of patent matters. Our lawyers have been involved in cases as diverse as computer software, ceramic welding, and folding chair design.
