WELCOME TO ICHTHUS INTERNATIONAL LAW PLLC
Specialized in Protecting Intellectual Property and Privacy Matters
No matter what type of legal support you’re looking for relating to intellectual property and privacy, we have the resources and expertise to help. See our services below, and contact us if you have any questions or special requests.
We prepare, draft and file applications for various intellectual property including patents, trademarks, and copyrights in the United States and other foreign countries. From initial interviews with inventors, we capture essence of the inventions and harvest them for protection in different countries. Based on the disclosure, we draft detailed specifications and drawings for filing. During prosecution of each application, we strive to be very proactive in terms of taking proactive actions to move the case forward within the United States Patent and Trademark Office toward allowance.
We prepare and file trademark applications for creating values by protecting trademark in the United States. A clearance search is often conducted to determine whether a particular trade name, a brand name or a trademark is available for adoption and proposed use. Many companies may unknowingly adopt a trade name, a brand name or trademark (collectively, “trademark”) that is already being used by another. This can render the companies vulnerable to a lawsuit and can limit the company’s ability to use its trademark later. The best approach is to exercise due diligence by performing a clearance search before adopting and using a trademark as well as filing a trademark application for the mark.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT AND MONETIZATION
Our deep IP management expertise enables clients, small or large, to grow securely in the future. Because of limited resources and experiences, often many small and medium sized companies tend to overlook the importance of properly developing and safeguarding their intellectual property rights early on. To help out, we provide the needed consulting services early on to those small and medium sized companies including clearance search, freedom-to-operate, invalidity opinion, non-infringement opinion, and other business consulting. Value creation in the portfolio is our focus!
Privacy laws and regulations are evolving at a fast pace, gaining more attention from the public and the private alike. Privacy practices need be drive by foundational principles, such as purpose specification, data quality, collection limitation, data minimization, use limitation, security safeguards, accountability/audit, openness/transparency, as well as individual participation. We provide consulting services relating to the privacy issues to help businesses adapt to ever-changing landscapes.
