Newburgh Intellectual Property Lawyers

Orange County, New York Licensing/IP Attorneys

The lawyers at Catania, Mahon & Rider, PLLC, handle a wide range of intellectual property matters for business clients. Many business organizations depend on their intellectual property for success. We help clients protect the trademarks, licenses, publications and trade secrets that are an integral part of their businesses - they are business assets.

Protect Your Creations

Our attorneys also assist clients with a wide range of creations such as writing, artwork, symbols, names, images and Internet content. We help them protect names, designs, icons, or other unique ways of identifying an organization's products or services in the marketplace. Finally, we help clients who own multiple establishments protect their brands through the provisions of franchising law.


One way to help clients protect their intellectual property is to register items with the proper organization. In the case of copyright of written or visual materials, we help the creators register with the Copyright Office at the Library of Congress. In the case of inventions, we help clients apply for patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.


Registration is not the only way to protect intellectual property. Licensing a process or product is another common way to make sure that selling or using the product does not steal the creator's rights in that product. Our law firm handles a wide range of licensing issues, from software to games to individual applications to website content.

Confidentiality Agreements

Another intellectual property protection strategy is to require employees to abide by confidentiality agreements. Our attorneys draft sophisticated agreements that help businesses protect themselves from theft by employees who may be in possession of the organization's assets.
