Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property is the cornerstone of any technology-based company. Our attorneys have years of legal expertise and industry experience in biotech, agtech, information technology, and e-commerce. Our attorneys are experts in IP licensing and leveraging. In today’s IP landscape, you need someone who can protect your local business globally. OgdenGlazer has experience with intellectual property regimes in Europe, Asia, South America, Australia, and Africa.

Information Technology

With multiple attorneys with software development experience, we have deep expertise in working with enterprise software, web-related service, and mobile application development. Our expertise includes drafting and negotiating open-source and proprietary licensing schemes, developing user agreements, and helping you to navigate global privacy requirements. 

Trademarks

Our firm knows trademarks. We believe that your brand is often the single most important asset of your company. We can help you analyze the competitors in the market and other brands that may pose a problem, navigate an appropriate strategy, and then execute a global protection scheme for ensuring your brands and products are protected. We have deep expertise in state, federal, and international trademark protections. Having Ogden Glazer + Schaefer manage your portfolio means you can focus on executing your business strategy.

Copyright

Content creators are some of our favorite clients. We are here to support your creativity! Whether you are an artist, musician, author, or educator, we can help you protect your creations. Filing copyright applications is often just the first step in connecting your art and creations to your fans and your users. We also work with consultants and educators looking to protect and leverage their business tools and curriculum.

Patents and IP Portfolio Management

Our IP experts are technologists. With strong background in the hard sciences, genetics, software, and business processes we know how to help you integrate your technology into your business. We leverage our network of patent lawyers (we do not draft patents at Ogden Glazer + Schaefer) to get the patents you need, and then work with you to turn those patents into business relationships through licenses and joint ventures and technology partnership agreements.
