Intellectual Property

Overview


Chambers USA 2018

Intellectual property is not just many companies’ greatest asset—it is their greatest investment. Today, however, product lifecycles are short, competition is fierce, and reputations can be won or lost at the push of a social-media button. Further complicating the picture is an increasingly complex web of international laws and regulations, sweeping judicial decisions, and legislative initiatives that present constant challenges to businesses.

McDermott’s intellectual property practice helps clients identify and secure their creative assets, maximize the value of their IP portfolios, and enforce or defend their rights in courts and tribunals virtually everywhere their products are made, distributed and sold.
