Intellectual Property
Patent, Trademark and Copyright protection

Mitch is one of the relatively few registered patent attorneys in the United States.  He is licensed to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark office.  If you think that you may have a new invention, need a trademark for your product or business or need to protect your artistic work, Mitch can help.

Mitch can perform a search to determine if your invention is worth further investment.  Mitch can also prosecute a wide variety of patents ranging from cutting edge medical devices to golf inventions.  Mitch can guide you through the often treacherous process of obtaining a patent for your invention.  Mitch's goal is to help you obtain quality protection for your invention at the lowest cost in the shortest time.

Trademark - A trademark is a distinctive design, picture, emblem, logo or wording (or combination) affixed to goods for sale to identify the manufacturer as the source of the product and to distinguish them from goods sold or made by others.
Mitch can conduct a search for similar trademarks to avoid the costs of wasting time and money or a potential lawsuit.
Mitch can assist in obtaining Trademark registration.  Registration provides clients with several advantages e.g., a legal presumption of the registrant's ownership of the mark and the registrant's exclusive right to use the mark nationwide on or in connection with the goods and/or services listed in the registration.

Copyright - Copyright is a form of protection provided to the authors of original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works, both published and unpublished. Mitch can assist clients in securing copyright protection, enforcing copyrights, developing strategies to maximize income, and protecting clients' rights in court.

Patent - A patent for an invention is the grant of a property right to the inventor, issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. What is granted is not the right to make, use, offer for sale, sell or import, but the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, selling or importing the invention.
