We work and play in the great outdoors and pride ourselves on remaining up-to-date with industry trends. From idea to product creation to distribution, branding, and marketing, we help manufacturers and retailers protect innovative ideas, products, and the bottom line.

Adventure is in our backyard, and helping guide outdoor industry companies through all stages of protecting their intellectual property is our passion. We counsel clients on all aspects of intellectual property, including patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade dress, rights of publicity, unfair competition, trade secrets, advertising, domain name registration and acquisition, brand protection, acquisitions, and IP licensing.  In addition, we are valued for our significant experience and proven success in enforcing and protecting IP rights through litigation in state and federal courts and in advocacy before administrative agencies, including post-grant and inter partes reviews at the U.S. Patent Office. We also represent clients before the International Trade Commission (ITC), helping to block illegal counterfeit goods and litigating cases involving a wide range of intellectual property-related disputes.
