Strategic Thinking. Practical Solutions.
Whether your company is weathering the effects of a global pandemic or implementing a reduction in force for any reason, it is crucial that you continue to protect your valuable intellectual property. This includes filing trademark and patent applications within the statutory deadlines, ensuring that inventors maintain accurate and proper invention disclosure records, ensuring that employees protect confidential and trade secret information while working remotely and ensuring that marketing teams launch new trademarks only after having them properly cleared by legal.
We’re here to assist. Thompson Hine has created IP Solutions, a program tailored to each company’s unique needs to mitigate the obstacles impacting our clients’ IP operations. Our services and their benefits are described below.
