Intellectual Property

Effective legal protection of intellectual property assets is critical for both new and established companies.  Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek’s Intellectual Property practice is a forceful and effective ally of businesses whose future depends on preventing intellectual property assets from being unfairly compromised in the marketplace. Our attorneys counsel clients on the creation, licensing and sale of intellectual property rights, as well as the protection of those rights through litigation when necessary. SCMV represents not only San Diego-based companies, but also businesses headquartered elsewhere who seek San Diego representation when infringement disputes arise.

With the addition of The Trademark Group®, we significantly expanded our trademark capabilities, particularly in international trademark law.  The Trademark Group is a separate practice area dedicated to trademark selection, registration and protection, with a network of relationships with foreign attorneys who assist with foreign filings and trademark protection in more than 120 countries. Our trademark professionals can assist in the creation, monitoring and protection of national and international portfolios.
