    Infringement litigation to prosecute or defend a claim that a protected intellectual property right has been violated

While we are well-versed in intellectual property matters, we are not registered patent attorneys. However, we work with outside counsel composed of registered patent attorneys to meet copyright needs. With more than 30 years in intellectual property registration and enforcement, Bruno has built a network of skilled intellectual property lawyers who can handle any intellectual property matter. Because we consider ourselves as part of your team, we will always attempt to get you to your goal as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible while protecting your legal rights and ideas.

As Aggressive In Court As We Are Knowledgeable About Intellectual Property

While we have helped countless individuals and businesses obtain copyrights and trademarks, Bam of New York, Inc. is an aggressive litigation law firm. Our attorneys are as comfortable and skilled in the courtroom as they are at the negotiating table and in drafting and review services.

What that means for our clients is that we can help them throughout their intellectual property matters. We can ensure your copyright or trademark is registered correctly. We can license intellectual property and exploit its full potential and value. If a third party does use your copyrighted or trademarked material without permission, we have the resources and experience to file a lawsuit on your behalf and obtain a fair result, whether by settlement or judgment and its enforcement.
