atkins intellectual property


Atkins Intellectual Property helps clients with issues involving intellectual property law. Expanding one’s rights, exploiting them, protecting them from infringement, and avoiding disputes are at the heart of what we do. This includes:

  • Trademark registrations
  • Trademark searches
  • Copyright registrations
  • License agreements
  • Ownership agreements
  • Coexistence agreements
  • Noncompetition agreements
  • Nondisclosure agreements

We measure our success by the value we provide. We also know that predictability is important. For that reason, we offer certain intellectual property services at competitive fixed rates. Fixed rate or not, we’re pretty good communicators, so you’ll always know what we’re doing, why we’re doing it, and how much it’s going to cost.


We’re competitive and are driven to win. Litigation is all about planning, and (in our humble opinion) we’re good at it. We work with clients to maximize their position and minimize surprises. Litigation can be disruptive and expensive, but sometimes it’s necessary. When that’s the case, we’re with you in the trenches. Sample claims we often prosecute or defend against include:

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of warranty
  • Tortious interference with a business expectancy
  • Violation of Consumer Protection/Unfair Business Practices Act
  • Violation of Computer Fraud and Abuse Act

Our experience runs the lifespan of a lawsuit, from investigating the facts and drafting or answering the complaint, through depositions, motions, trial, and appeal — in state and federal court, as well as in arbitration. When you need us, we’re here.


The intersection of intellectual property and litigation is our sweet spot. We continually represent clients in disputes involving allegations of:

  • Trademark infringement
  • Trade name infringement
  • Trade dress infringement
  • Copyright infringement
  • Trade secret misappropriation
  • Cybersquatting
  • Counterfeiting
  • Keyword advertising
  • False advertising

We also represent clients before the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB).
