Protecting Copyrights, Trademarks & Trade Secrets

Intellectual property likely comprises a business’ most valuable assets. But copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets can easily be lost if a business is not proactive about protecting them.

ZESB’s attorneys understand this, and are well versed in assessing our clients’ intellectual property holdings and guiding them on the appropriate steps to protect and strengthen their intellectual property rights.

When an infringement or misappropriation occurs, ZESB has the experience and resources to take swift and aggressive action to enforce our clients’ rights and prevent further damage.

We offer intellectual property protection services in the following areas:

  • Copyrights. A copyright protects original literary, artistic and musical works, including manuals, brochures, logos, product labels and websites. ZESB offers counseling and copyright registration to provide our clients with the maximum possible protection.
  • Trademarks. A trademark identifies a good or service and distinguishes it from competitors. ZESB provides clients with a full-range of trademark services, from initial counseling to filing applications for registrations. ZESB also has considerable experience advising clients regarding enforcement of trademark rights.
  • Trade secrets. Theft or misappropriation of trade secrets, raiding key personnel and other breaches of fiduciary duty can cause irreparable loss to a business. The attorneys at ZESB protects business trade secrets and proprietary information through contracts and, if necessary, strategic litigation in both state and federal courts.
