Protecting Your Intellectual Property

Many missteps companies make in signing bad agreements that do not adequately protect your interests or give an unfair advantage or preference to the other party. Whether it’s dealing with a problematic employee or a difficult business alliance partner, trouble can be prevented with a phone call, meeting, or review of an email or document by our lawyers at Chenoweth Law Group. We are recognized as on-call general counsel to many of our clients. We can provide needed guidance or quick course correction before an ill-advised action is taken. Our philosophy is: “It’s cheaper to keep you out of trouble than to bail you out of trouble.” It’s a due diligence mindset we try and teach our clients so they can fully utilize our firm as a resource to grow.

Most firms do not have every kind of specialist for every legal issue, and while that’s true with CLG we do have many and are continuing to expand wherever we see the need. When our clients require a specialist or expert we research and hire one. We negotiate rates and fee agreements and stay on to provide light project management of that legal need to ensure things go smoothly and the clients get what they need for a reasonable fee. We review the specialist’s billings to ensure this result meets expectations as well.

At CLG, we represent businesses of all types. From our headquarters in Portland, we take on our client’s legal matters throughout Oregon, Washington, and California.
