Intellectual Property

Protecting the competitive edge in today’s technology-driven marketplace requires an active intellectual property strategy. Companies and individuals gain a competitive edge by employing a comprehensive approach to acquiring, protecting, and commercializing their intellectual property. From patent, trademark and copyright assets to trade secret, data privacy, and domain name issues, Heninger Garrison Davis focuses on protecting your valuable proprietary rights and assets from unfair competition.

We Work With Companies of All Sizes

We represent clients ranging from individual entrepreneurs and startup companies to well known and established corporations in a variety of industries including information technology, computers, consumer products, telecommunications, entertainment, publishing and manufacturing.

Protection is Proactive

In the area of intellectual property law, Heninger Garrison Davis understands the vital importance of protecting and defending proprietary rights that may include patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade dress, images, brands, and services of our clients. Commercial intellectual property environments are complicated. Challenges often arise contesting patent, trademark, or other rights. Our attorneys possess the skill and experience to evaluate and execute alternatives to best protect, enforce, and defend client intellectual property rights.

Types of Intellectual Property Disputes

Copyrights protect the original expression of ideas in a broad spectrum of media – including software, instruction manuals, novels, music, sculptures, paintings, and dramatic works. Copyright ownership vests in the “author,” or creator of the work, or in an employer if the work is created by an employee and is within the scope of his or her employment. Owners of copyrights have the exclusive rights to reproduce, adapt, publicly distribute, publicly display, and perform their works.

The intellectual property attorneys of Heninger Garrison Davis help clients safeguard their copyrights and investment in works of authorship. We have represented clients with copyrights on a wide range of works that include:

  • Computer software
  • Online and interactive video games
  • Literary works
  • Works of art
  • Compilations of data
  • Audiovisual works
  • Sound recordings
  • Websites

The vigorous enforcement and protection of patent rights in federal courts throughout the country is one of the foundations of Heninger Garrison Davis’s practice. The attorneys in our patent litigation department are experienced in every facet of patent infringement litigation, from pre-suit investigation of accused products and claims analysis to trial and appellate practice before the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

The patent litigators at Heninger Garrison Davis also have experience litigating patent-related matters before the International Trade Commission and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

We are dedicated to protecting the rights of patent holders across a wide spectrum of technological areas, from cutting edge energy and telecommunications applications to highly sophisticated industrial methods and manufactures to consumer and recreational products found on major retailer’s shelves across the country. Our attorneys have filed suits in courts all across the United States seeking monetary damages and injunctive relief for clients against infringing manufacturers.

To date, we have recovered millions of dollars in settlements and judgments on behalf of patent holders, and are fully prepared to initiate complex and very costly patent litigation on a contingency fee basis which we’ve found is of enormous benefit to many of our clients who would not be able to effectively bear the costs of legal action themselves.

We DO NOT handle Patent Prosecution for new patents, however, we can refer you to someone who does. 


Heninger Garrison Davis recognizes that a client’s trade or service mark — its brand — can be a vitally important asset. Our trademark attorneys possess extensive experience in all areas of trademark and service mark protection and practice.

Heninger Garrison Davis attorneys handle trademark and related disputes at all levels, including trademark infringement, trade dress infringement, unfair competition, false advertising, and domain name disputes. The Firm also guides clients through these matters from the client’s first awareness of a potential dispute, through initial contacts between the parties, litigation, if necessary, and settlement.
