Intellectual Property

The firm practices to protect creative works and trademarks in the apparel and entertainment industries.  Mr. Lowe has authored multiple articles about entertainment/copyright law, has spoken extensively at legal education presentations, and co-founded and chairs the California Society of Entertainment Lawyers.  Although the firm does not do patent law, the need for protecting your creative works, proprietary information, and brand is always of prime importance as intellectual property is often more valuable than tangible property.
