Patent

Patent, copyright, industrial design right and trademark registration set the legal framework for any mature enterprise to define itself as an equal, responsible player in the knowledge economy. It is not too difficult to find an example of one who losts his brand name or his precious trade secrets to a competitor due to piracy, counterfeiting, or even an infringement claim, but little awareness is raised about disadvantageous effect resulted from misguided, incomplete protection. Working with intellectual properties requires a comprehensive, strategic approach to deal with complicated issues in which a single decision can lead to huge difference in investment, and a minor slip could be of serious loss for a company in the future. That is why Daitin & Associates commit to prioritize effectiveness and competence to all of our clients.
