INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW

PROSECUTION PRACTICE

Professionals of Tumey IP are licensed to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. This aspect of the practice involves the drafting and prosecution of applications for patents, trademarks, and copyrights in the United States and foreign countries. Our international practice is a vibrant part of Tumey IP, and our professionals are involved daily on prosecution matters all over the world.

TRANSACTIONAL PRACTICE

Tumey IP provides services in structuring, drafting, and negotiating intellectual property transactions. Such transactional practice includes intellectual property licensing, technology transfer agreements, consulting agreements, development agreements, and manufacturing agreements.

STRATEGIC COUNSELING

Counseling clients concerning intellectual property protection and exploitation is a large part of Tumey IP’s practice. Such strategic counseling includes freedom-to-operate analysis, rendering opinions on patent validity and non-infringement, advice on international strategies, portfolio review, advice on portfolio growth and profitability, and trademark and service mark clearance. Tumey IP also provides advice on the selection, design, and use of trademarks and service marks; recommendations on the protection of inventions; and counseling with respect to trade secret protection.

LITIGATION PRACTICE

The Firm understands that the first priority is to resolve disputes without the need for litigation. However, we understand that in some instances litigation is necessary to resolve disputes. We have been involved in trademark, trade secret, and patent litigation and take pride in our ability to partner with other firms in order to maximize our expertise for the benefit of the client.

POST-GRANT PROCEEDINGS

Even though a patent or trademark registration has been granted, such grants are not guaranteed. The protection provided by a registration can be limited or even terminated by post-grant proceedings. In some instances, post-grant proceedings have been seen as an alternative or a supplement to litigation.


At Tumey IP, we have been involved in all matters of post-grant proceedings such as re-examinations, cancellation actions, and oppositions. We have represented clients on the offensive in post-grant proceedings and have also defended clients on such matters. With our extensive international practice, we have been involved in post-grant proceedings in many countries around the world.

At Tumey IP, we fully understand that the profitability of an organization is tied to its ideas.  In today’s world, that profitability is often tied to the international community as well.  A wide range of skills is necessary to protect such ideas worldwide and bring them to profitability.  

​Our professionals provide a wide breadth of experience and skills to successfully represent and strategically guide organizations from protection to profitability from their ideas.  Most large law firms cannot provide our level of service on a personal level, and most small law firms cannot provide our broad experience and expertise.
