Government Rights in Intellectual Property

If you develop hardware, software, pharmaceuticals, copyrighted works, or any intellectual property product or service, doing business with the federal government is rife with hidden risks.

We help organizations navigate the minefield and protect their IP.

Using federal funds involves rules, regulations, and obligations nonexistent in the commercial sphere.

Reporting. Patenting. Marking requirements. It all must be done correctly. Get it wrong, and you forfeit critical rights.

Even without federal funding, government-specific contract clauses and requirements pose a threat to the unwary.

We know how you can get the most value from IP in public and commercial markets. And when and how to take advantage of federal funding.
