Intellectual property


Just like real property (land) or personal property (tangible things), the legal system protects “intellectual property.” This includes inventions, trade secrets, creative works like songs and photographs, and branding.

Susan Bristow-Ford has experience with all kinds of intellectual property law, including:

  •  The protection and enforcement of trademarks, patents, copyrights and trade secrets.
  • Advising and guiding clients through the process of obtaining intellectual property protection.
  • Assisting clients with infringement issues, licensing, and compliance.
  • Negotiating and litigating IP-related business contracts such as partnership, joint venture, distribution, franchise, licensing and supply agreements.
