About Intellectual Property Law

Buche & Associates has experienced intellectual property lawyers who specialize in these areas of the law. Intellectual property law is associated with a range of rules and statutes that secure and enforce legal rights respecting artistic works, designs, inventions, and other proprietary information. Many people are familiar with the part of the law that protects personal property, but intellectual property is an asset too. Individuals or businesses have a legal right to control—often exclusively control—intellectual property assets even though they are intangible assets. Buche & Associates IP attorneys help our clients ensure that no one else can profit or misappropriate works that belong to them without securing appropriate permissions, or paying fair royalties.

World-Class Legal Counsel

Sometimes, our clients simply need competent legal counsel in areas of the law related to intellectual property. As experts in these types of matters, our attorneys can advise you about the best course of action regarding your case. You need experienced IP attorneys who can effectively strategize how to protect your rights at home and abroad. With our incredibly diverse range of IP cases, we believe we can provide you with the counsel you need to successfully protect your rights. Our clients include individual intellectual property owners, manufacturers, commercial businesses, retailers, laboratories, start-up companies, and more.

Remember, intellectual property protection isn’t merely a set of static solutions. Your intellectual property may very well be an item that requires nourishment so it can grow into a lucrative asset. Protecting it well helps you ensure that you are the beneficiary of this asset’s earning potential. Infringement cases are all too common—and some can be quite brazen in their refusal to adhere to intellectual property laws, copyrights, and patents. Our attorneys see this all the time. But they also have the tools and resources needed to effectively protect your intellectual property rights.

Protecting You Against Infringement

If you believe that someone is infringing on your intellectual property, we can help. If an individual or business entity is infringing on your rights as the intellectual property owner, you can contact us to provide notice. We can begin the legal process by warning unauthorized users to cease infringing on your rights. In some instances, this may be all that is required. On the other hand, this warning also sets other aspects of the law into motion, particularly if you are entitled to legal benefits. We can prosecute your infringement case in court if the case warrants it.

Enforcing Your Rights

Buche & Associates IP attorneys can enforce your intellectual property rights in court. First, you can consult with our legal experts who can help you determine if your rights have been infringed upon and to what extent. If you choose to proceed with litigation, you may be entitled to a number of remedies under the law. First, the court could order an injunction, instructing the infringer to cease doing whatever it is they are doing to impede upon your rights. In many cases, the infringer may agree to a licensing agreement if you are open to this measure. In these cases, the infringer can only continue to use your intellectual property if they pay you for the privilege with a royalty.

As the intellectual property owner, you have considerable rights. These rights can be lucrative. That’s why it’s so important to work with a legal team that has experience and expertise in intellectual property law and licensing agreements. The attorneys of Buche & Associates can help you establish, defend, and profit from your intellectual property.

Patent, Trademark, and Copyright

Because our firm specializes in areas of the law like intellectual property, we’ve naturally included related topics in our practice. Our attorneys specialize in patent, trademark, and copyright law. We can assist our clients by filing U.S. national and foreign patent applications, copyright applications, and trademark applications. We have experience defending our clients’ rights in both federal and state courts in matters of entertainment, copyright, business, patent and trademark infringement claims. We have successfully litigated matters dealing with unfair trade practices, false advertising, trade secrets, non-competition agreements, domain name disputes, internet law, breach of licensing agreements, and other related matters.

Trade Secrets and Unfair Competition

Buche & Associates has attorneys who are experts in legal matters concerned with trade secret and unfair competition laws. We’ll put our expertise and experience to work for our clients, protecting their assets. Trade secret law is complex, but it can provide protection for a wide array of ideas, some of which may not be patentable. In recent years, our attorneys have helped clients protect their chemical processes, product sourcing information, secret recipes, customer lists, business contacts, and more. If you have a trade secret that needs protecting, contact Buche & Associates to learn how we can help you protect your rights in this regard.

In addition, if you believe that litigation is in your best interest, we can take your case to court. We will represent you or your company’s interests with unfailing dedication in any type of dispute that involves unfair competition or a misappropriation of confidential material or information. Trade secret theft is serious and can have considerable impact on you. Our attorneys can help you establish your case and work to ensure that you are compensated for damages.

Domestic and Global Protection of Your Rights

Given today’s dynamic global economy, it’s essential to provide the best protection for your intellectual property—your trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights, and other assets that are crucial to your livelihood or business. It can be challenging just to provide first-class safeguards of your rights in the U.S., but it can be incredibly complicated when foreign states are concerned. Counterfeiting and other forms of intellectual property infringement have been steadily increasing around the world.

Buche & Associates helps owners of intellectual property rights design and institute effective enforcement strategies in the U.S. and abroad. You deserve to have your property rights skillfully protected and defended—even in emerging markets. Our attorneys have experience in the fields of fashion, gaming, agriculture, software, manufacturing, and much more. We can put our experience to work for you too.
