Commercial Litigation: Intellectual Property

Mar 31, 2020 | Commercial Litigation

Intellectual property is a category of property that includes a work or invention that is the result of creativity, such as a manuscript or a design, to which one has rights and for which one may apply for a patent, copyright, trademark, etc. 

Experts estimate that in today’s current economic climate, intellectual property accounts for 45%-75% of Fortune 500 companies’ wealth. The legal team at Williams Hart & Boundas understands how valuable your creative commodities are, whether you are an artist, inventor, software developer, programmer, or any other individual or company that relies on innovative and intangible ideas as a central aspect of its livelihood.

Commercial Litigation: Franchise Disputes

Franchising offers tremendous benefits to both parties involved. For larger companies, it provides a logistically feasible way for their product to reach a wider audience. And for the franchisee, it provides an individual the opportunity to run a business under the name and guidance of a successful brand. While this is a relatively symbiotic venture, like any business relationship, disagreements do occur.

Our team of Houston franchise dispute attorneys at Williams Hart & Boundas understands that you have a lot at stake in the event of a franchise dispute, whether it is your livelihood, your brand, or both.
