Overview of Services

Our Virginia intellectual property lawyers help businesses identify, commercialize and protect their intellectual property rights. IP is the intangible core of every product or service brought to market. Protecting your IP leverages the competitive advantage you created for your company.

In addition to licensing your IP, our attorneys protect your valuable intangible assets by prosecuting and defending claims in federal and state litigation, arbitration, and administrative proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB).

The team at VF&N can secure your rights with advice on registering trademarks and service marks with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), protecting trade dress and trade secret rights, and registering copyrights with the US Copyright Office.
