Intellectual Property Law

Protect your business and its value

Patent Law

Through years of experience, our team has developed a multipoint approach to patent application and enforcement. This approach helps ensure the most robust protection available for the inventor, which enables sustainable revenue and growth.

Trademark Law

Failing to properly protect your intellectual property can help other people make a lot of money off your hard work and ideas. Let the experts at Verna Law conduct a review of your business’ intellectual property assets and liabilities to ensure you have the protection you deserve.

Advertising and Promotion Law

One regulatory investigation into an unfounded medical claim can be enough to sink a growing company. Run afoul of Facebook’s Terms of Service during an ill-planned promotion and the audience you’ve spent years cultivating can be ripped away from you forever.

Copyright Law

A Copyright is best described as a set of rights granted by the government for the expressions of ideas or information.Quite literally, it is the set of rights the owner has to allow copies of the expression to be made.

Domain Name Disputes

Maybe you are a domain name owner involved in a domain name dispute with an overzealous trademark holder. Maybe you’re a trademark owner who is the victim of abusive domain name registration.
