PROTECTING INNOVATION

You invest a great deal of time, effort, and money to develop innovative technologies. You invest even more to manufacture, distribute, and market the products and services that embody these technologies. Schacht Law Office is here to protect these innovations.

Schacht Law Office helps your clients identify, secure, and maintain their intellectual property rights. Intellectual property—patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets—allow its owner to control the commercialization of inventions, goodwill, works of authorship, and other commercial work product. By protecting these rights and taking steps to avoid infringing the rights of others, you can invest in new products with confidence that these investments will pay off in the form of increased profits and market share. Without intellectual property protection, your competitors can simply adopt the technologies or features that give your products a competitive advantage. Providing competitors with free search and development services is clearly not a recipe for success. Schacht Law Office helps you to protect the value of your business by preventing others from marketing products or services that make use of your investment in intellectual property.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS


Ross Clawson President - Homax

For more than 15 years, Mike has been our go-to resource on intellectual property matters. In our case that means trademarks, copyrights, and mission-critical patents. Mike not only helped Homax obtain meaningful coverage, he helped us develop an effective overall IP strategy, too.

John White CEO - APE

We had tried working with a large patent law firm, but the attorney they sent down did not seem to understand the technology as well. Mike’s technical expertise makes the patent application process easier and more efficient for us.
