Protecting your intellectual property is a crucial foundation for the success of any business. For starters, protecting your intellectual property improves your competitive position. To obtain a patent in the United States, your invention must be useful, new, and non-obvious. With that in place, patent protection may provide important barriers against competition. Patents are government-granted rights to exclude others from practicing your invention that may be used to prevent or deter others from competing against you with your own technology. You can also secure trademarks, trade secrets, and copyrights, which provide similar benefits. If you are looking to expand on a business venture, protecting your intellectual property is a smart business move.

At D. Tiller Law PLLC, I provide a wide range of intellectual property law advice that can assist the launching and flourishing of your business. As a former research scientist and engineering project manager, I possess the scientific background to understand modern-day technological breakthroughs.

I am dedicated to researching the established data and being cognizant of the ever-changing economy.

Business Benefits of Intellectual Property

Whether it is through patent, trade secrets, trademark, or copyright, I assist individuals and businesses to best position themselves to benefit from their work. The business advantages that intellectual property law provides include:

  • Securing Product-Differentiation Advantages. Assuring that your product is unique will help it stand out in the marketplace. Competitors cannot simply incorporate your legally protected idea into their products.

  • Securing Branding Advantages. Establishing a brand personality with trademarks can improve your reputation in the community. Competitors cannot appropriate your trademarked content.

  • Securing Technological Advantages. Competitors in the United States may want to appropriate your product or operational advantages by using your technology. However, they are not able to use your properly protected technology.

  • Securing Business Advantages. Your competitors from the United States may want to incorporate your marketing or operational advantages into their own business by using your business knowledge, but they are unable to take your properly protected information.

Let’s Get Started

It all starts with a review of your idea and your business goals. Based on this review, I can identify the potential value added by securing your intellectual property rights. This may involve properly structuring development and procurement contracts, seeking patent protection before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), selecting brands and seeking trademark protection before the USPTO, and developing best practices for handling proprietary information. From there, I can review your business plan and provide legal counsel to help you grow your business.
