Intellectual Property

Epps & Coulson’s Intellectual Property attorneys work with clients to develop trademark, copyright and patent rights, build them and then protect them, through litigation if necessary.  The Firm and its affiliates have experience in working with myriad of clients ranging from musician, entertainment and media, to manufacturing, health care, service and distribution in all stages of business from formation to sale.

Epps & Coulson attorneys provide results oriented Intellectual Property counseling to entrepreneurs, emerging growth companies, partnerships, joint ventures, family businesses, public companies and ones in between.  The practice team helps its clients evaluate, develop and apply for and secure IP rights, whether copyright, trademark or patent.  Then, we work with clients to build and exploit the IP to meet client goals and protect the value of the IP rights.  The Firm also investigates and purchases IP rights and consults on building the client brand, including by licensing of IP rights.  The Firm’s attorneys are committed to forming and maintaining long-standing client relationships built on client’s goals.

Epps & Coulson attorneys and affiliates are skilled in enforcement in all aspects of IP litigation, including infringement, non-compete and overuse in federal, agency Appeal Board, and at times, state courts.  It includes copyright and design litigation, trade dress and trademarks litigation, licensing disagreements, fair use problems and employee IP theft and unfair competition matters.  The bankruptcy attorneys have enforced IP holder rights and licensee rights and purchased IP assets out of bankruptcies.

Attorneys at Epps & Coulson consult with clients on everyday strategic business IP matters all the way to ones that jeopardize a company.  When necessary, the Firm’s litigators protect the client’s IP rights and are driven by client business goals.  They have successfully represented clients across industries and regions and of every business size.  Among them are financial institutions, as well as local, national and international businesses—both public and private, government entities, start-ups, entrepreneurs and individuals, in a wide range of litigation, mediation and arbitration.  The Firm’s attorneys also focus on business solutions to conflicts, including before, during and after litigation.
