Serving Clients For More Than 90 Years

In today’s competitive business environment, innovation occurs at a torrid pace. Protecting intellectual property has never been more important. We represent established companies, startups, and individual inventors across a wide range of industries. We also work with referring attorneys to assist their clients with a wide variety of intellectual property needs.
The competitive advantage of many entrepreneurs and businesses is housed within their intellectual property. Protecting these intangible assets is essential. Equally important is enforcing intellectual property rights through litigation or other means of dispute resolution.

We Serve Clients Locally, Nationally And Worldwide

When it comes to interpreting and navigating the complex field of intellectual property, you need a trusted partner. Our attorneys focus solely on intellectual property law. Our knowledge of the technical subject matter and our experience in this complex practice area allow us to assess each client’s situation and develop effective legal strategies that accomplish their unique objectives.
With the advent of the internet, location has become less of a concern for intellectual property law firms and the clients they serve. A great deal of our work is carried out electronically. We are equipped to assist clients locally in the Greater Kansas City metro area, as well as throughout the United States and internationally. Our clients appreciate our emphasis on clear communication, personal attention, and efficiency in finding cost-effective solutions.

We Are An Amazon Accelerator Law Firm

We enjoy the privilege of serving as one of a few curated Amazon IP Accelerator Law Firms. That means that our clients can use the IP Accelerator program to enroll in the Amazon Brand Registry within two weeks after filing a trademark application (rather than after a registration issues a year or more later). Benefits of utilizing the Brand Registry include quicker access to proactive brand protections, powerful search and report tools, and brand-building features to secure and expand your brand’s footprint in new marketplaces. 

Amazon | Seller Central Partner Network | Service Partner

Our clients can use the IP Accelerator program to enroll in the Amazon Brand Registry within two weeks of filing a trademark application, rather than after a registration issues. The program is available to brands worldwide. The IP Accelerator provides businesses and individuals with access to brand protections, analytics, and brand-building features in Amazon’s stores, to better protect and grow their brand MUCH FASTER – months, or even years, before their trademark registration officially issues.
