Helping Protect the Value and Distinctiveness of Proprietary Assets

At Dean Mead, our Intellectual Property (IP) Group is devoted to helping clients protect, defend, and capitalize on their IP assets. We understand the significance and value of IP assets in today’s rapidly changing global market and know that ingenuity and creativity are only the beginning of launching a successful offering in the marketplace.

As a strategic partner, we counsel clients to minimize liability risks to their IP assets and stop competitor infringement to protect their businesses’ bottom line. Our attorneys have litigated state and federal cases, from temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunction hearings through the final resolution. We understand that smart IP counseling means knowing the intricacies behind our clients’ IP assets and safeguarding every aspect of a product or service.

Our attorneys have experience handling claims of infringement of marks under the Lanham Act, as well as violations of the Florida Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act and the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. We have litigated cases concerning false or misleading advertising, tortious interference with business relationships, online defamation, copyright infringement, and allegations of misappropriation of trade secrets.

We offer trademark portfolio support in registering new marks and renewing them by the appropriate deadlines, which we calendar for our clients. We assist with licensing of all IP, including end-user license agreements for a variety of goods and services. We also handle domain name challenges under the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute Resolution Policy.

“Ingenuity and forward-thinking help bring new products and services to market. We know the challenges surrounding IP and provide our clients with protections to ensure their offerings are not compromised,” said David Hathaway, Chair of the firm’s Litigation Department, who also counsels clients in intellectual property matters.
