How to Protect Intellectual Property
Let Our Orange County Intellectual Property Law Firm Satisfy All of Your IP Needs
Innovation is the basis of economic growth, for both individual companies and the United States economy as a whole. United States intellectual property is estimated to be worth more than $5.0 trillion dollars. At the Orange County intellectual property law firm of Crockett & Crockett, we provide full-service intellectual property management. We understand the importance of safeguarding your intellectual property, so that you can appropriately profit from your research and development investment.
Our skilled team of intellectual property lawyers serves a diverse clientele with a variety of intellectual property representation needs, such as:
- Refining ideas
- Filing for and obtaining legal protection
- Maximizing portfolio profitability
- Minimizing risk
- If needed, enforcing rights through intellectual property litigation
We will pursue the most effective protection possible for your intellectual property. Often, that means filing for a patent or trademark, but some types of intellectual property may be more properly safeguarded as trade secrets through non-disclosure agreements. We can help you find the best intellectual property strategy to meet your needs or the needs of your business.
Intellectual Property Law Firm in Orange County for Patent Prosecution, Dispute and Litigation
If obtaining a patent is the right strategy, an Orange County patent attorney on our team will pursue and secure the broadest coverage possible. We can obtain protection for you through the World Intellectual Property Organization’s Patent Cooperation treaty, which allows our patent attorney to seek international patent protection simultaneously in all of its member states.
As an experienced intellectual property law firm, we have patented an extensive and diverse array of technologies. Our successful patent rate is unmatched by any other Orange County patent law firm. This is important as the United States Patent and Trademark Office typically grants less than half of the more than 500,000 patent applications applied for each year.
Our services do not end at securing international patent protection. After obtaining the appropriate patent protection, we can help you profit from your intellectual property’s value through portfolio management, including navigating you through licensing agreements.
Need an Intellectual Property Due Diligence Opinion Letter?
Our intellectual property law firm offers advice to both individuals and venture capital investment firms through opinion letters. We can answer questions on a range of IP due diligence topics, such as:
- The validity of the patent
- Value or possible infringement of existing or proposed patents
An Orange County patent lawyer at our law office can also give advice on investing in companies holding intellectual property as their major asset.
Attorney for International Trademark Protection, Maintaining Rights and Infringement Monitoring
We can protect and promote your company’s image and goodwill by registering your trademarks and upholding your unique cyber presence. When we file for trademark protection, we make sure to perform a risk assessment on any marks you are interested in adopting. Once you have adopted them, we monitor federal applications for similar marks to prevent dilution of your branding.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued about 200,000 trademark certificates of registration for the last year on record in the United States, with the number of trademark registrations growing annually. This makes trademark management, enforcement and monitoring incredibly important, as is contestation when someone else tries to register a mark too similar to your own.
Our Orange County intellectual property law firm can also protect your company’s cyber presence by enforcing its domain name against infringers in cybersquatting and domain name disputes.
Protect IP Rights with Our Orange County Intellectual Law Firm

Our principals, David Crockett and Susan Crockett, have extensive experience bringing large-scale intellectual property litigation to successful outcomes before the Federal Circuit. We will give you candid advice and pursue the course of action most appropriate to your situation, whether it is settlement, mediation, licensing or suit.
