Intellectual property attorneys can help you defend your rights.
In the age of information, it’s never been more important for intellectual property owners to be able to call on intellectual property attorneys to help them defend their rights. If someone’s stolen your intellectual property (IP), you may need help to see your way through to justice.
What Is Intellectual Property Asset Recovery?
An asset recovery is seeking to obtain and reclaim the rights to intellectual property. Intellectual property assets may have been unduly claimed by another party or parties, who either stole it, fraudulently misappropriated it, or wrongfully removed and dispersed it from the owner. The recovering process can involve a family, friend, acquaintance, co-worker, or corporate entity taking the intellectual property assets from the owner to use and from which to obtain self-enrichment without authorization from the owner.
What Kinds of Assets Can an Intellectual Property Lawyer Recover?
The kinds of recoverable assets that an intellectual property lawyer can recover include property in the form of intangible assets, such as trademarks, copyrights, patents, industrial design rights, and trade secrets. Intellectual property assets are often in such industries or creative areas as music, literature, artistic works, discoveries and inventions, words, phrases, symbols, and designs.
These are all forms of created intellect that have been registered or designated for ownership by an individual, group of individuals, or entity. The value of these assets lies in its ability to directly or indirectly generate money based upon its popularity, crowd appeal, and distinction.
How Can an Intellectual Property Attorney Return Your Assets?
An intellectual property attorney can creatively pursue and, with persistence, investigate the legal matter. Through research, interviews of people with knowledge of the situation, documentation, and supporting common and statutory law, an attorney can develop and manage your case strategy.
Your IP lawyer is equipped to figure out the puzzle by obtaining as many missing pieces of evidence as possible. Whether it’s through individual testimony, forensic accounting, electronic device information, and investigative experts, the attorney is actively pursuing the leads that link the owner’s property to the culprit or culprits who unjustly robbed it.
What Help Can an Intellectual Property Attorney Provide for Asset Recovery?
An intellectual property attorney can provide a clear understanding of your choices as either the plaintiff or defendant to a legal action for asset recovery. The proficient attorney may investigate the matter to recreate the way by which the property was taken and identify who took it from the title possessor.
