For many companies, their most valuable asset is their intellectual property. Bradley’s Intellectual Property Practice Group demonstrates the skills and tenacity needed to protect and defend the valuable IP rights of our clients. Including more than 20 licensed patent attorneys, our practice offers a full range of services to protect and enforce the intellectual property rights of businesses across an array of sectors.

Bradley's Intellectual Property Practice Group maintains a national IP practice, with a specific concentration in the Southeast. We offer our depth and breadth of services to a diverse client base, ranging from startups and technology incubators to midsized companies and large multinational corporations. Nearly 100 of our clients are companies listed in the Fortune 500. Our IP services are completely scalable, which makes our attorneys suited to serve as ongoing counsel to help oversee and maintain IP assets or as counsel for one-off matters where success is critical.

We help businesses guard their critical market share and positioning through the acquisition of trademarks, copyrights, and patents. We also provide counsel on issues such as trade secret protection and unfair competition. To help our clients generate the most value out of the intellectual property holdings, our practice provides comprehensive counsel concerning intellectual property development, licensing, and commercialization.

When action is necessary to enforce the IP rights of our clients, our exceptional litigators handle patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret and licensing-related litigation before federal, state, appellate, and administrative courts, as well as international forums and tribunals. Many of our attorneys have industry backgrounds and advanced degrees in key technical disciplines, including electrical and mechanical engineering, software and computing, and biochemistry. Our patent lawyers have deep and varied litigation experience in a range of cases, which they combine with their technical industry experience to perform as aggressive advocates for our clients before judges and juries.

Our IP attorneys are at the vanguard of the growing trade secrets field, as advancing technology and connectivity make it easier than ever to transmit proprietary data. We also maintain a position at the forefront of e-commerce and internet law, serving as counsel to leading companies in this emerging sector. In addition, we serve as leaders in the intersectional area of intellectual property and government contracting.
