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.

Mr. Keilen was courteous, very knowledgeable and more than willing to meet us the first time at our home, making it easier for my husband. He explained about estate planning, so we understood exactly what we needed to have. Adam and his staff were able to complete the advanced directive, our will, living trust and etc, as requested. He has a notary on staff and was able to have a witness available just when we needed one. Made the entire visit run smoothly, even though we showed up an hour early (by mistake). He also spent his time checking into a separate matter for us, out of the goodness of his heart.
