No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing


Commercial Litigation Lawyers Protect Your Rights

As worldwide commerce and communication accelerates, small businesses and entrepreneurs are becoming increasingly vulnerable to theft of their intellectual property. Valuable ideas and work products are at risk of being stolen by companies eager to profit from the creativity of others.

Our intellectual property dispute team at Searcy Denney will fight for your rights if someone pirates your ideas or work products. When we represent you, our goal is to hold wrongdoers accountable for their actions and achieve a fair recovery for your losses.

Intellectual Property Lawyers Protect Ideas, Products, Processes

cl_5If you hold a copyright, patent, or trademark to protect your work products or processes, you have the right to prevent others from using these products and processes without your permission.

The most common types of intellectual property include:

  • Trademarks, which refers to a name, logo, slogan, design or some combination of these that is used to identify and distinguish a company or individual from its competitors. Generally, trademarks are used to protect a “brand” that prompts instant recognition from prospective consumers.
  • Copyrights, a set of rights granted to a person who has created a book, song, painting, photograph, play, movie or other creative work. Most often, the creator of the work has the exclusive right to reproduce the copyrighted work and maintain its distribution or public display. 
  • Patents, which are rights granted to an inventor to protect an invention from sale or distribution for a limited period of time.
  • Trade secrets, referring to a formula, process, technique or collection of information that is not generally known by the public. A trade secret will lose its value if it becomes known by the public or a competitor.

Registration with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is required to protect patents and trademarks. Although it is helpful to register copyrighted material, it is not always required. Trade secrets cannot be registered.

Our Commercial Litigation Lawyers Defend Intellectual Property Rights

If another company or individual discovers one of your ideas or creations and appropriates it for its own purposes, you should discuss your situation with one of our Florida intellectual property attorneys. At Searcy Denney, we understand the significant damage that intellectual property theft can have on businesses large or small, and especially on entrepreneurs.
