Lawyers in Hand Arendall's Technology and Intellectual Property Group counsel the firm's clients on matters concerning the acquisition, maintenance, and protection of trademarks, trade names, trade secrets and other intellectual properties. In today's ever-changing and technology-intensive business environment, these lawyers provide assistance in the registration of intellectual properties on both the federal and state level, and are able to provide ongoing support as the needs and uses of clients' intellectual properties evolve. Their intellectual property practice includes:


  • Registration of trademarks, service marks, trade names, and other intellectual properties at the federal and state level
  • Protection of common law and registered intellectual properties through litigation, alternative dispute resolution methods, and administrative proceedings
  • Negotiation and preparation of franchising agreements, licensing and assignment agreements, joint ventures, and supply and manufacturing agreements
  • Development and formation of various types of business entities and commercial vehicles designed to provide for the utilization of intellectual properties


Detailed patent investigation, procurement of U. S. and foreign patents, and technical patent legal advice is best obtained from a member of the specialty Patent Bar. For these types of matters, Hand Arendall works closely with the firm of Womble Carlyle. Womble Carlyle’s patent group comprises more than 60 attorneys with experience in virtually every aspect of patent law in most industries. Hand Arendall recommends Steven D. Kerr who will assign the appropriate patent attorney to handle the issue. http://www.wcsr.com/lawyers/steven-kerr
