What Can An Intellectual Property Lawyer Help You With?

Intellectual property attorneys can help you navigate the complexities of IP, including the various laws and regulations involved in protection. After all, it doesn’t end with filing and acquiring a patent, trademark, or copyright—you’ll need to continuously defend your IP. A lawyer can provide services in securing an IP, writing non-disclosure agreements, and identifying assets.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire An Intellectual Property Lawyer In The U.S.?

IP attorneys range from $300 to $400 depending on a few factors, such as location, the type of law firm you work with, and the amount of experience they possess. To find the best value for money, you’ll want to keep these aspects in mind.

How To Find The Best Intellectual Property Lawyer

Finding the best IP lawyer for your individual situation can be difficult, but there are a few ways you can do so. One of the easiest is simply asking other businesses for attorney recommendations, which lets you rest assured that you’ll be working with a competent professional who has provided another business with excellent service. You can also consult bar associations or online services, sorting by state and city.

FAQs About Intellectual Property Lawyers

What Do Intellectual Property Lawyers Protect?

IP attorneys protect intellectual property like patents, trademarks, and copyrights (which include inventions and creative works), enforcing the right for creators to sue for infringement and contest if necessary.

Where Do Most IP Lawyers Work?

IP lawyers are usually employed by law firms in a specialized IP law department. However, they also work in post-secondary institutions, for government agencies (e.g., the USPTO), or in corporations.

Is An IP Attorney The Same As A Patent Attorney?

Patent attorneys specialize specifically in patent law rather than other forms of intellectual property. If you’re dealing particularly with patents, you may be better off hiring a specialized lawyer.
