Intellectual Property Attorneys in Kalamazoo

Generally, the rights of intellectual property owners are based on federal patent law, trademark law, copyright laws, and state trade secret laws. As an overview, patents protect tangible inventions (for example, a widget); copyrights protect various forms of written and artistic expression (books or architectural designs); and trademarks protect a name or symbol that identifies the source of goods or services (brand name or logo).

At Keilen Law, we can help you secure your rights in copyrightable material, a trademark, or we can help you license your patent. Business lawyers use contracts to help you maximize and protect your ideas. In addition, there are specific terms that are required for intellectual property assignments; therefore, clients should always meet with their business lawyer to carefully protect and or assign intellectual property.

Adam Keilen, in my opinion, is the best counsel I have ever dealt with. His knowledge of the law and commitment to serving his clients are attributes everyone should look for when selecting an attorney to work with. What really stands out is his attention to detail and making sure his clients understand critical information. He makes sure that every possible issue is considered when drafting or reviewing a contract. He is truly a top professional in his field. Adam is fair, responsive, understanding, professional, and exceptionally competent. He has never failed to give a timely response to any request and they have always been thorough and thoughtful. His network is extensive and his reputation invaluable. He continues to go above and beyond. I view Adam as a critical partner in my business and its future success.
