Intellectual Property

We recognize that the success of your business may hinge on the ability to protect your innovations in order to profit from their sale or licensing. The intellectual property lawyers of Briskin, Cross & Sanford, LLC, represent businesses throughout Fulton County, Cobb County, Greater Atlanta, statewide and beyond in trade secret protection and litigation.

Based in Alpharetta, Georgia, our attorneys actively support the development of the Georgia 400 corridor in North Fulton County. We counsel many software developers, biotech firms, manufacturers and other technology-dependent companies in this hotbed of growth. As such, we are familiar with clients' needs to assertively protect their investments and aggressively litigate infringement.

Intellectual Property Safeguards

Copyright law attorney Alan Briskin and our IP team will analyze the necessity of obtaining copyright or trademark protection and assist in filing the state and federal copyright/trademark applications.

We also draft technology licensing and franchising agreements to maximize clients' profits while minimizing liability and unauthorized use of your intellectual property. Our attorneys have the industry savvy and the contract law experience to properly protect your interests in these intricate and technical agreements.

Our lawyers also practice employment law and can draft effective noncompete and nonsolicitation agreements that will hold up in court to prevent employees or partners from improperly using confidential information and trade secrets, including customer and client lists.

We also have been extremely active on behalf of executives and entrepreneurs seeking court determinations that noncompete agreements are not enforceable.

Patents: Briskin, Cross & Sanford, LLC, does not handle patent applications, but we work closely with our clients' counsel at local, regional and national patent law firms. If you have a patent need, feel free to contact us, and we will refer you to qualified patent counsel.

Intellectual Property Litigation

Our firm's experienced business litigation attorneys have litigated many copyright and trademark infringement cases, as well as restrictive covenant and trade secret actions. Briskin, Cross & Sanford, LLC, also defends companies against allegations of infringement and in challenges to employee agreements. While many trade secret litigation cases settle out of court to our clients' satisfaction, we have also had success before judges and juries.

Of course, we cannot make any representation or guaranty of success in your matter, as all matters are different.
