Intellectual Property

Bringing a pragmatic, cost-effective approach to all aspects of intellectual property matters.

Heyl Royster's Intellectual Property Practice builds on our attorneys' extensive commercial and transactional law knowledge to provide clients with a spectrum of wide-ranging intellectual property services. By developing an understanding of each client's business objectives, we bring a pragmatic, cost-effective approach to intellectual property matters.



  • Employment-Related IP Issues

Our extensive experience advising clients on employment-related issues involving intellectual property includes enforcing confidentiality and non-compete agreements and resolving issues related to intellectual property ownership. 

  • Intellectual Property Disputes and Litigation

Our attorneys represent clients in intellectual property disputes, patent, trademark, and copyright infringement proceedings, and trade secret disputes. We also help clients enforce and defend their rights to use intellectual property.

  • Intellectual Property Prosecution and Protection

We work with clients to obtain and integrate patents into their business strategy. We develop these patent licensing strategies either separate from or as part of a patent enforcement strategy and provide due diligence services. We assist with post-grant proceedings, resolving patent disputes, and, when necessary, litigation. We help clients develop and enforce the protection and monetization of their ideas and inventions under patent, trade secret, and copyright laws. We assist clients with managing their intellectual property assets and evaluate, structure, and draft a wide variety of patent transfer, technology licensing, and intellectual property commercialization agreements.

  • Privacy and Data Security

Consistent with our Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Practice, we work with clients across a broad range of industries to implement privacy and data security protection programs, including drafting policies and procedures. We also evaluate and draft Non-Disclosure Agreements to fit clients' specific circumstances.

  • Trademarks

Heyl Royster advises clients on trademark law issues and assists in evaluating proposed trademarks and with trademark searches, opinions, and registrations while evaluating the protections necessary for our clients' marks while enforcing protected marks against infringers.
