Opinions and Counseling

Clients call upon Stroock lawyers daily for advice and counseling on all aspects of intellectual property law, including such issues as how to develop and maintain intellectual property asset management plans and procedures, employment practices and procedures for employees developing intellectual property, competitive or state-of-the-art analyses, secrecy and confidentiality issues, or monitoring the marketplace for potentially infringing activities.  We also routinely provide detailed opinions to our clients with respect to whether third parties are infringing upon our clients’ rights, or if our clients are potentially infringing upon the rights of a third party, or on the validity of our clients’ or a third party’s rights.  We also assist our clients in avoiding infringement of valid third party rights through design-around assistance.  Our assistance helps our clients maintain their competitive edge in the fast moving marketplaces in which they operate.
