Protecting Your Valuable Intellectual Property
Intellectual property (IP) is the lifeblood of many businesses. Whether you have a particular logo, a new invention, a proprietary business process or a list of valuable clients, you have a legal right to protect your IP. If you think another company has stolen your legally protected IP, or if you are being accused and brought in as a defendant on charges of misappropriation, you need exceptional legal care from an experienced legal professional.
At Tomlinson & Shapiro, P.C., we bring decades of combined legal experience and knowledge to our IP representation for all types of businesses throughout the Chicagoland area. Our lawyers take a hands-on, detail-oriented approach that results in efficient, favorable resolutions for our clients. We are a trusted name in IP law throughout Illinois.
