Intellectual Property & Data Privacy
Intellectual property is often the most valuable asset a company owns, whether it is trade secrets, confidential company information, trademarks, or copyrighted material. When others threaten to steal or erode the value of a company’s intellectual property, the company must take swift and decisive action to protect itself and stop those who threaten it.
Chenoweth Law Group issues cease and desist letters, files suits, restraining orders, and preliminary injunctions to stop departing employees, partners, and competitors from stealing, using, or claiming rights to intellectual property your company has worked so hard to create and develop.
Whether your company is a young startup hoping to grow or an established company, it is critical that you have a firm you can rely upon to provide legal protection of your intellectual property.
