Intellectual Property

We help our clients identify, inventory, protect and defend their intellectual property rights, whether it is copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, designs, service marks, or patents. We consult on the strategy to protect their rights, including how to respond to inquiries or threat letters, to assess, evaluate, protect, establish and grow client’s intellectual property portfolio.

We work in U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) interference, reexamination, post-grant proceedings, opposition and cancellation proceedings as well as Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforcement proceedings and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval processes. Mohen Cooper coordinates and marshals the best talent to serve its clients. We also conduct IP audits, product clearances, negotiate license agreements, and prepare opinions on infringement, validity and enforceability issues.


From new product development through patenting, litigation, appeal, and even the sale of your portfolio, we can help. We have represented clients on design patent matters in district courts and before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), International Trade Commission (ITC), U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and U.S. Supreme Court. We regularly advise our clients regarding infringement, validity, and freedom to operate, and we provide accurate and comprehensive evaluation of design rights as part of intellectual property (IP) transactions.


The firm regularly counsels clients on all issues confronted by trademark owners in the normal course of their business. After evaluating the availability of a trademark or service mark, the firm provides each client with practical advice regarding the adoption of the prospective mark. This may include the filing of a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, evaluating whether protection should be obtained abroad and advising as to the best way to obtain that protection. The firm further advises clients on all potential enforcement and litigation issues that may arise.


We assist clients with the protection of copyrights in original works of authorship in all forms of media. Our services include preparing copyright applications, counseling clients regarding protection in registered and unregistered works, enforcing valid copyrights against alleged infringements and defending the fair use of copyrighted works.
