Intellectual Property

Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf advises its clients on all legal aspects of intellectual property development, acquisition, prosecution, protection and strategy. Drawing from both transactional and litigation backgrounds, our lawyers routinely assist clients with securing the rights in the intellectual property necessary both to operate their existing business and to enter new markets.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in securing the ownership of intellectual property (whether through in-house or outside development) and then developing strategies for protection of that intellectual property through selective use of governmental registrations, contracts and litigation. We help our clients implement those strategies and ensure that the applicable filings, policing and protection activities are appropriately prioritized. We also help clients assess whether intellectual property ownership is the right model in each instance, and, when it is not, work with our clients to license the necessary rights. Our lawyers have in-depth knowledge and experience gained from representing both licensors and licensees, which allows us to help our clients avoid common pitfalls and gain protections to safeguard their intellectual property rights.

Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf has litigated intellectual property matters at all levels of US federal courts and in other jurisdictions around the world. Having handled complex cases involving patents, copyrights (including software), trademarks and trade secrets, our lawyers are able to provide the full range of litigation services. Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf lawyers have a record of success representing both plaintiffs and defendants in intellectual property disputes.
