IP Counseling
In our global world, no innovation is safe without protection. Finding an attorney who can develop the right level of protection for the unique nuances of your work and the market can be a challenge.


At Workman Nydegger, we strive to help each client understand how to create asset value by strategically developing their IP portfolio. We work with key innovators and business managers to not only understand the technical details of your innovations, but also how those details are expected to yield a sales advantage. In other words, we want to make your property the most marketable product possible. We work with our clients to ensure stronger, more enforceable trademarks and patents and help them avoid costly disputes with others — all while working within the client’s budget.

Our attorneys are masters of their craft, allowing them to strategically protect your innovative technologies because they also understand them.

Workman Nydegger has protected some of the world’s largest and most sophisticated innovations, and our close working relationship with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office allows us to resolve issues and reach resolutions quickly. We also work with an extensive network of IP law firms in virtually all countries. Our IP counseling and prosecution work has resulted in the following:

  • 5,000 pending U.S. patents 
  • 4,000 foreign patents in over 70 foreign countries
  • Over 1,000 trademark applications in 85 countries worldwide.

Many of our attorneys have lived overseas and are fluent in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, Russian, and Japanese. In addition, our attorneys have overseen and managed IP litigation in established and emerging markets in Europe, China, Japan, Korea, Canada, Australia, Latin America, and other areas of the world.

Let us craft the right protection for your innovation.
