Intellectual Property

Best Practices:

Firm lawyers frequently advise and consult individuals and businesses on best practices with respect to IP used in medium including film, television, print, and most frequently, web usage.  Each business is responsible for its own IP it chooses to use on its various web and social media outlets, and Firm lawyers assist clients in establishing best practices with respect to such in addition to advising on intellectual property rights allocation, licensing terms, warranties, indemnities, damages disclaimers, and limitations of liability.



Intellectual property can be a major source of revenue, but it can also be considerable risk. Infringement and counterfeiting cases have become ubiquitous in today’s global economy. Only naturally, the potential costs in enforcing one’s IP rights or defending against IP claims have increased substantially.

Companies today need counsel that is experienced in providing global IP management and enforcement services in a cost effective manner. Companies also need counsel that is able to either bring or defend against non-practicing entity infringement claims.
The attorneys of Gafni & Levin LLP are equipped with the skills and knowledge to handle IP lawsuits involving patent, trademark, trade dress, and copyright infringement, as well as trade secrets across the United States.
