We are a team of intellectual property law specialists
IP Works was founded in January 2012 by Catherine A. Cavella, Esq., a seasoned intellectual property and business attorney who believed there must be a better way for innovative startups and early stage companies to get the legal advice they need to compete against the big guys.
Intellectual property protection is not one size fits all. You may not have the intellectual property rights you need if your patents, trademarks and copyrights are not crafted properly. Our attorneys tailor protection strategies to fit your needs and ensure that you receive the maximum return on your investment.
Some intellectual property is not easily identifiable. Intellectual property comes in all shapes and sizes, many of which are not obvious to the untrained eye. Our attorneys come to your facility and perform an assessment to identify all of your intellectual property, including those you may not realize can be protected. This ensures none of your ideas are overlooked.
All intellectual property is not equal in value. Some of your creations are worth more than others and should be protected accordingly. Our attorneys provide guidance in determining the value of each of your ideas. Based on the valuation, we develop a comprehensive protection strategy to ensure your most valuable intellectual property is protected in every way possible.
Catherine and her team have been an essential part of my company since day 1. I know that I can call Catherine at any time with questions or for help. IP WORKS is fantastic at communication & attentiveness. Catherine always breaks things down so that I can better understand and is very thorough. As an entrepreneur with a start up - I can sleep easy at night knowing I have IP WORKS on my side.
