Houston Intellectual Property Attorneys
Your Houston business and its brand are recognized by the public through intellectual property such as logos, trademarks, and trade secrets. Vethan Law Firm’s intellectual property team resolves complex intellectual property disputes and helps you protect trade secrets, copyrights, trade names, and other intellectual property.
Our IP lawyers seek to protect both a business’s creative output, such as trademarks, copyrights, and patents and the confidential and proprietary methods and systems those businesses have developed.
For example, formulas, confidential information, client lists, and certain other non-public materials may be extremely valuable trade secrets of a business. Whether you need help preventing the theft or misappropriation of your trade secrets or stopping former employees or partners from illegally using and benefiting from information and methods you have developed, quick action is required. Through that action, you can pursue an injunction against the wrongdoer.

The Value of Intellectual Property
Intellectual property (IP) is a valuable asset for businesses, as it represents the intangible creations of the human mind. It includes patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and more.
Protecting your intellectual property is crucial for several reasons:
- Competitive advantage: IP helps you differentiate your business from competitors by offering unique products, services, or branding. This competitive advantage can lead to increased market share and profitability.
- Revenue generation: IP can be licensed or sold to generate additional income streams. Licensing agreements can provide you with royalties while selling IP assets outright can result in significant one-time revenue boosts.
- Attracting investment: Strong IP portfolios can attract investors and increase your business's valuation. Investors often seek companies with protected innovations, as they believe these companies have a higher potential for growth and long-term success.
- Encouraging innovation: By protecting your IP, you can ensure that your investments in research and development are secure. This encourages further innovation and fosters a culture of creativity within the organization.
- Legal protection: Properly protected IP assets can help you defend against infringement claims and potentially costly litigation.
