Intellectual Property Attorneys

Helping Businesses Protect Their Innovations, Brand Identity, Trade Secrets, and More Across the U.S.

Technology is rapidly advancing, leading to unprecedented changes for commercial businesses and government contractors alike. One of the most significant consequences of the technological developments of the past few decades is that businesses, entrepreneurs, and innovators must increasingly account for intellectual property law when making business and creative decisions. The complexity of regulations and legal processes can be overwhelming for mature and growth-stage companies alike. 

What Is An IP Lawyer?

An intellectual property (IP) lawyer is a legal professional specializing in the complex field of intellectual property law. This area ensures that companies and individuals have ownership rights to their creative works, inventions, designs, and logos, which are products of mental efforts and intellectual labor.

IP lawyers play a pivotal role in protecting these valuable assets, representing clients in disputes, and guiding them through processes like patent filing or trademark registration. In the context of unfair competition, an intellectual property attorney can provide a defense for those accused or seek justice for those economically harmed. Providing services nationwide, IP lawyers would also need to understand specific state regulations and how they intersect with federal laws. Intellectual property attorneys require not only a deep understanding of legal principles but also an appreciation for innovation and creativity. 

For over 20 years, entrepreneurs, executives, and stakeholders have trusted Martensen IP to develop and implement comprehensive legal strategies that enhance their intellectual property portfolios and competitive advantages in the marketplace.
