Our firm also provides due diligence contract review and can renegotiate your existing contracts to reduce operating expenses.
- Intellectual Property – Our firm can help you protect your intellectual property such as copyrights, trademarks and service marks. Ensure your Federal and State rights are protected with proper applications to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). And once your rights are secure, let us help you license your intellectual property rights to other businesses and effectively leverage your rights to grow your business.
