Intellectual Property Law
In today’s ultra competitive business world, the valuation of a company is much more than the physical and tangible assets present on hand. Business value is also built from corporate branding, marketing, art and logos, trade names, processes, patents, ideas, and other intangible assets. Today’s savvy business owner recognizes the importance of promptly and properly securing the rights in their Intellectual Property in today’s modern economy.
Copyright, trademark, and patent registration can protect a business owner from others illegally using your business name, likeness, creations, or ideas in the course of business. Copyright protection will grant you exclusive rights in your original works of authorship, which broadly includes written materials, music, images, graphics, film, video, webpages, and architectural works. Trademark rights enable the protection of a word, phrase, symbol, logo, or design that you currently use, or intend to use in the future, which distinguishes the source of your goods to the public consumer. Patent Law will protect novel and non-obvious ideas, processes, and methods that you have invented from others seeking to use your new technology or invention in any way, shape, or form.
Protecting your Intellectual Property rights ensures that your hard work and capital investments into your business remain your property and are not taken advantage of and deteriorated by third parties. The attorneys at the Bradley Legal Group, P.A. have significant experience with both the United States Copyright Office and the United States Patent and Trademark. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or need assistance in protecting your rights.

Mediation / ADR
Alternative Dispute Resolution is a growing trend among litigants. Sometimes, it’s just not the right decision to go to court. Litigation can be expensive, uncertain, and can take years to complete due to the heavy workload and complexity of the court system. That’s where Mediation offers another alternative.
Mediation is a process where parties to a lawsuit come together in an attempt to create their own solution to a dispute. The idea is to discuss your concerns with the other party in a less formal and adversarial setting in hopes of reaching a resolution. A mediator does not listen and record testimony, does not hear legal arguments, and does not issue a binding ruling on the parties. The mediator works with both parties, hears their concerns, and aids the parties in reaching a mutually agreed on settlement. The process is completely confidential allowing all parties to share positions and information that does not flow in the restricted confines of the litigation process.
Here at the Bradley Legal Group, P.A., we offer mediation services for those times it’s just not right to go to court or when the court orders the parties to do so. We have comfortably facilities to accommodate two large parties so each side has space to operate. Let us know if we can help you reach an amicable decision to your dispute.
