The Bingham McHale Intellectual Property & Technology (IP&T) Group works with institutions of higher education, creative inventors, technology innovators and manufacturers (large and small) to identify critical and unique aspects of your intellectual property (IP) and technology assets.  Our experience includes domestic and foreign intellectual property law, including patent, trademark, copyright, unfair competition, computer, trade secret, E-commerce and technology law.

Perhaps you have a process or abstract idea that is critical to your business operations. It is difficult to protect an abstract idea. One can, however, protect its expression. The sooner the expression is protected, by way of patent, copyright, trade secret or contract, the less likely one will lose control of it. 

IP&T law is complex and often overlooked in a company’s overall business strategy, particularly during the start-up stage. And today, with the increased importance of the Internet and fast-changing technologies, intangible assets are even more valuable than ever and should be protected. We can help you protect those vital business assets.
