Intellectual Property

Krevolin & Horst provides a full range of services to protect intellectual property. We understand that a company’s most valuable asset is often intangible.


Our corporate team is adept at helping clients extract value from their intellectual property. We often represent smaller companies in negotiations with larger companies and assert and protect our clients’ interests without delaying transactions.

Our litigators are experts at ensuring that others do not derive value from your intellectual property without paying for it. We have experience aggressively defending accusations of intellectual property theft or use. We bring decades of experience to intellectual property disputes, including trade secrets, copyright infringement, and trademark disputes. We provide a practical approach to resolving disputes, with the goal of getting our client to a resolution and back to business as usual.
