Intellectual Property

Stroock’s full-service Intellectual Property Practice Group combines legal excellence and business-minded counsel to give clients an edge in developing, protecting, maintaining, licensing  and monetizing their intellectual property assets. Stroock’s clients benefit from the resources of a national law firm, as well as the strategic advice and scientific knowledge of an intellectual property boutique. The firm’s comprehensive practice advises on patent, copyright, trademark and trade secrets matters in the U.S. and overseas, including:

  • Litigation before state and federal courts, the US. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office
  • Patent, trademark and copyright counseling, procurement and enforcement
  • The misappropriation of trade secrets
  • Licensing, technology transfer, joint venture and distribution agreements
  • Professional services agreements, including software development, consulting and outsourcing agreements
  • Transaction support in mergers, acquisitions and investments, due diligence and valuation
Stroock’s intellectual property attorneys  merge their intellectual property services with Stroock’s traditional strengths in investment banking, venture capital, and structured and corporate finance to help clients realize the true value of their intellectual property and achieve their business goals. Our attorneys’ business acumen, technical backgrounds and courtroom experience give Stroock clients an edge in developing, protecting and monetizing their intellectual property assets.  Stroock is also successful at bridging the gap between a company’s ability to protect scientific and technological developments and an investors’ willingness to finance innovation-based companies.

Stroock’s intellectual property clients range from individual inventors and emerging businesses to large domestic and multinational corporations. We represent companies whose businesses center on high-technology innovations, as well as traditional businesses with little or no technology. Client industries include electronics, computer software and hardware, telecommunications, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, biotechnology, medical devices, optics, financial services and trading, consumer products, food products, refining, manufacturing, textiles, fashion, publishing, digital rights management, entertainment, multimedia, retailing and a variety of service industries.

Stroock clients benefit from working with attorneys who have degrees and experience in the technological sciences.  As electrical engineers, mechanical, computer scientists, chemical engineers and biochemists, Stroock’s intellectual property attorneys understand their clients’ businesses and can advise them within all technology disciplines. 

As authors and frequent lecturers in their fields of expertise, our intellectual property attorneys are informed of the latest legal advances impacting a broad range of technologies. By understanding these developments, Stroock’s intellectual property attorneys help clients anticipate challenges and capitalize on opportunities that could affect strategic business goals.  They also participate in industry organizations and associations such as The Patent Law and Practice Committee for the New York Intellectual Property Law Association, The International Trademark Association and The Advisory Board of the Patent Trademark and Copyright Journal.
