Tonkon Torp attorneys are skilled in the law of trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and patents, and enjoy helping their clients develop, protect and strategically exploit those assets. Our intellectual property practice encompasses the full range of counseling and compliance services, as well as litigation expertise.
