IP Litigation & Licensing Law
Intellectual property (IP) is defined as any creation or invention original to the creator of that property. Under this sector of the law, this type of property warrants the owner certain rights over how that property is used, distributed, etc. The owner of that property maintains the rights to publish, manufacture and otherwise use that property. Original publications, consumer products, music and the like are all examples of intellectual property that can be infringed upon. Those who want to protect their patents or gain a patent for their product can rest assured that our firm has the experience and skill to do so. You can retain the rights to the property that is rightfully yours, but the first step you need to make is to contact an attorney that knows the industry.
As the firm's founder and managing partner, Chuck Grimes has worked extensively in all facets of intellectual property law. He has managed the worldwide trademark portfolios of leading consumer products companies and has participated in major trademark and patent litigations. He has been involved in some of the most successful commercial exploitations of intellectual properties over the last 35 years. He is the former Trademark Counsel of Gulf + Western, which at the time owned Paramount Pictures, Madison Square Garden, Simon & Schuster and other well-known companies. Chuck and other firm members have been involved in the intellectual property exploitation of a diverse group of companies, such as Archie Comics, SOBE, Revlon, Avon, Pierre Cardin, Consolidated Cigar, Cuban Cigar Brands, Evian Waters, Hearst Entertainment, King Features, DIC Entertainment, Scholastic Publications, Harvard, Yale, UCLA, USC, Lego, Hitachi, Guess and the PGA, just to name a few.
Chuck and other members of the firm have been instrumental in structuring intellectual property exploitation arrangements involving Microsoft, DreamWorks, Disney, Universal Studios, Columbia, Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers, ABC, CBS and Time Warner, as well as hundreds of other companies. Their efforts have contributed to the generation of hundreds of millions of dollars in profits from successful intellectual property exploitation.
