Why do I need an intellectual property lawyer?

Protecting your life’s work is one of the most important things an individual or a business can do for themselves. However, many people, small business owners, and entrepreneurs aren’t sure how they can protect themselves. A lot of people are under the misconception that intellectual property protection is only for businesses who have a lot of competition and are widely known. This is simply not true. Anyone can obtain protection for their intellectual property, whether it be a copyright, trademark, or patent.

Any legal process can be confusing, especially one that your business may rely on. It is important that you retain the services of an experienced intellectual property attorney who can guide you through the process of determining which protection may be best for your situation. In addition, your intellectual property attorney can conduct a search on your behalf to determine whether there are already protections for this intellectual property in existence.

It is important to be aware that the United States Patent and Trademark Office will only allow registered patent attorneys to help you obtain a patent. For trademarks, any attorney who is in good standing with the New Jersey State Bar can assist you. However, you should use an attorney that has experience with intellectual property matters.
