Intellectual Property


Experienced. Efficient. Effective.

Patents, trademarks and copyrights are significant and valuable business assets and are often the driving force behind revenue-generating transactions and activities. Protecting and managing those assets are critical to realizing a return on investment and maintaining a competitive advantage. We know this from experience. The attorneys in Warner Norcross & Judd's Intellectual Property group are experienced in all aspects of acquiring, managing, protecting, licensing, selling and exploiting all types of intellectual property assets and are dedicated to doing so in an efficient, effective manner.
Warner Norcross is a one-stop shop for all of your legal needs, offering all of the services available from a traditional IP boutique firm with the backing of a full-service law firm. With the additional expertise of attorneys in other areas, such as tax, finance, corporate, and antitrust law to address non-intellectual property issues in an integrated and seamless manner.
Our Intellectual Property group has in-depth experience in all areas of IP:
  • IP Enforcement and Litigation
    • Patent, Trademark, Copyright and Trade Secret Litigation
    • Post-Grant Proceedings
    • Patentability, Freedom to Operate, Non-Infringement and Validity Opinions
