The Intellectual Property attorneys at Gehres Law Group, P.C., a full-service law firm based in Southern California, are client-focused with an eye toward leveraging clients’ intellectual property to help them achieve success in the marketplace. Our knowledgeable lawyers provide counsel on the most effective methods of establishing and maintaining IP holdings and protecting IP rights so clients can realize the greatest value from these assets. From trademark registration, copyright registration, trademark infringement, copyright infringement, to IP audits, licensing and trade secret agreements, our attorneys do it all intelligently, efficiently and effectively, ensuring clients receive the greatest value possible for their investment. At Gehres Law Group, we know our success is your success.

Our firm’s IP attorneys represent clients ranging from small to medium-sized corporations to individual inventors, authors and owners of creative works. Each client matter is handled expertly by an attorney with more than ten years of experience to ensure the best results for clients; we never delegate attorney work to paralegals or less experienced attorneys. And, unlike IP boutique firms that limit their practice solely to intellectual property matters, we support businesses in a variety of other practice areas, including business and commercial litigation, business formation, contract law, corporate law, employment law and even estate and succession planning.

Trademark Registration

Our Intellectual Property attorneys assist clients in obtaining trademark protection, performing searches and rendering opinions as to registrability of marks. We also counsel clients on domain name strategies, domain name acquisition, trade secret protection, and the protection of IP rights on the Internet. In sum, we focus on protecting the goodwill and brand value that our clients have worked so hard to develop. And, many of these services are provided on a “no surprises” flat fee basis.
