Scott D. Locke, Esq.
Partner & Department Chair
By counseling clients on the protection, licensing and enforcement of patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets, Dorf & Nelson facilitates the growth of their businesses. Our goal is to enable our clients to use their intellectual property rights to add value and to give them a competitive edge in the marketplace.
Few industries exist in a vacuum, and the value of intellectual property rights will change over time and be relative to the rights of others. Accordingly, we also assist our clients in periodically reviewing the value of their intellectual property portfolios and determining when to be concerned with the intellectual property rights of others and what to do about those rights.
Our experience in counseling clients with respect to their intellectual property rights spans diverse industries, including bioinformatics, pharmaceuticals, RNA synthesis, DNA synthesis, RNA interference, SNP technologies, genetics, fuel cells, automobile catalysts, eco-friendly technologies, the coatings and pigments industry, the luxury goods industry, the cosmetics industry, the medical device industry, virtual environments, charitable institutions, body sensors, and the information technology industry, including internet-based technologies.
