Attorneys | Publications

Our Intellectual Property and Technology Group is comprised of attorneys in our business, corporate, tax, and litigation practices who are experienced in protecting copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and other intangible assets.  Our clients include entrepreneurs, technology-based start-ups, established small businesses, and multinational corporations that are seeking to preserve, protect, and commercialize the technologies and creative work behind their products and services.

At Tydings we handle private offerings of securities for technology companies, and mergers and acquisitions of technology companies, including government contractors in the defense industry and intelligence community.  We are also well versed in Internet services and software licensing agreements.

Comprehensive IP protection

We implement comprehensive intellectual property ("IP") protection on behalf of businesses of all sizes, including many start-ups in the emerging technology field.  We advise clients on:

  • Copyright and trademark registration, protection, and commercialization;
  • Licensing and technology transfer;
  • IP portfolio due diligence and analysis;
  • IP litigation;
  • Trade secret protection;
  • Protection against unfair competition practices; and
  • IP-sensitive non-compete and non-disclosure agreements.

In many transactional matters, our business, corporate, and tax group works in sync with our commercial litigation group to implement strategies that strengthen the value of our clients’ IP.  In any IP-sensitive deal, we identify the key intangible assets and work to ensure that no aspect of the transaction will compromise their value.

Representative Matters

The matters the firm has handled or currently handles for its IP clients include:

  • Defending trademark applicants in opposition and cancellation proceedings;
  • Defending a Canadian telecommunications company in a copyright infringement suit;
  • Representing an Internet services company in a private offering of convertible debt;
  • Representing a B2B technology company in several rounds of private equity deals, including coordinating its executive and incentive compensation-based employment agreements;
  • Assisting an Internet-based company with its “click-wrap" licensing agreements;
