Where Ingenuity Thrives®
Hovey Williams LLP has a 93-year track record of
protecting clients’ patents, trademarks, copyrights,
trade secrets and other intellectual property.
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.
The Law Firm That Other Lawyers Choose
We have earned a global reputation as a go-to law firm that other firms turn to for help with complex intellectual property issues.
We Are an Amazon IP Accelerator Law Firm
Hovey Williams enjoys 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.
