Copyrights & Trademarks
One of the most important assets of a company – and sometimes the most important asset – is its intellectual property portfolio. The Law Office of PJ Putnam, P.C. will help you identify those areas of your company that could use intellectual property protection in the form of copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets. We can develop an intellectual property registration plan. We can file your copyrights and trademarks using the most cost-effective level of filing that your company is entitled to receive. Additionally, should you desire patent coverage for your ideas, we can help direct you to outside law firms that can handle all of your company’s patent needs. In addition to intellectual property counseling and filing, an important role that the Law Office of PJ Putnam, P.C. fulfills is the management of your intellectual portfolio – let us manage your intellectual property portfolio.
Business Break-up Consultation (Pre-break up and Post-Break up)
Discussing potential issues (including, but not limited to, decision-making, what happens when there is a dispute, etc) should take place during the business consultation and entity formation stage of a company’s formation. However, with willing participants, it is often too late to discuss how to handle issues when they arise. The Law Office of PJ Putnam, P.C. can help you address potential issues and how to handle them before they arise. We can help when problems do arise. We can help you overcome internal issues within your company. And, if it comes to it, we can help you close your company and distribute its assets.
