The Business of IP®
We have migrated from an industrial economy to one driven by ideas and innovation. To support this knowledge economy, we’ve disrupted the traditional law firm model and put IP at the core. Surrounding it are the Corporate/Securities and Litigation teams that help protect those ideas, and our pioneering 601 West team offers market intelligence and analytics to assess and monetize IP assets. Our Government Relations team delivers creative and integrated solutions to navigate any political environment.
Well-formed IP assets contribute significantly to a company’s value. We work with clients to assess the competitive market through an IP lens and to help decide which innovations to protect and through which form of protection – patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, contract or a combination. With a focus that integrates business and legal strategies, we help ensure clients can operate freely in target markets while protecting their market position.
Lee & Hayes is not your typical law firm. We dare to be different, strive to be better and take great pride in providing our clients with unparalleled proficiency and experience. Our attorneys are among the best and brightest, with a swatch of advanced degrees, deep and diverse technical skills and in-house counsel and startup experience.
