    Patents can provide powerful leverage for your business. Whether they cover the products, the machines or materials that make your products, or the processes you use, they are a valuable part of your start-up and business. They can stop other companies from using your technology to develop a rival, can generate revenue and also create strong relationships with companies that need your product or technology.

    Your first step towards protecting your invention is to consider patents for intellectual property protection. While there are also other IP rights you should consider, like trade secrets, designs, and even copyrights, each with their own requirements and benefits, we help you to decide which is the best and most appropriate course of action to protect your IP.

    Adding Value

    Should patenting your invention be the right IP move, our IP experts are well equipped to make sure your invention is covered from every possible angle to maximize your company’s market opportunity. Once protected, we help you to build IP portfolios, where necessary, and tailor a strategy to your particular needs, covering every aspect of protecting computer-based and other inventions, including patent prosecution worldwide, patent enforcement and litigation, monetization and transactions of technology, and regulatory matters.

    Designs – sometimes called industrial designs or a design patent – is an intellectual property right aimed at protecting the aesthetics of an industrial product. In fact, in many cases, a client will need to file both a utility patent to protect the functionality of its invention and a design patent to protect its aesthetics.

    Protecting the way your product looks can often be integral to its value. A design patent allows you to protect this value. Our IP experts are well equipped to handle all aspects of protecting clients’ designs, tapping into our specialized knowledge and practical experience in the design registration process and an in-depth understanding of the broadest range of industries.

    Adding Value

    Having prepared and filed design registration applications in Israel, US and around the world, clients have at their disposal a multidisciplinary team of IP experts who will work with you to create the most comprehensive plan, tailoring advice to meet your product design requirements and your company’s specific commercial needs.

    A trademark identifies products or services. It can consist of letters, illustrations, or other graphic symbols such as the product name. Whatever the industry, when you think of some of the world’s most recognizable trademarks, they have a robust trademark strategy in place that distinguishes their brand, product, or service from others.

    Registering a trademark is important because it ensures that no one else uses a trademark that is too similar to yours, but it isn’t enough to just register your trademark. It’s important to ensure that the underlying trademark strategy is sound.

    Adding Value

    With an extensive roster of global corporates and multinationals across all industries, the Ehrlich Group creates the comprehensive trademark strategy for you, tackling all aspects of trademark prosecution and enforcement, helping you to identify strong and valid trademarks, slogans and domain names, securing their clearance, completing the registration processes in Israel and abroad, and overcoming any potential opposition or cancellation proceedings.

    Should you face challenging situations of trademark infringement, passing off, unjust enrichment, or unfair competition cases, you draw on the vast experience of the Group’s litigators who have represented clients at all levels of the Court system and before the Israel Trademarks Office, and successfully resolved these disputes. We also lead the fight against counterfeit goods using your trademark, handle any competition procedures between trademark applications pending at the Israeli Trademarks Office, and support clients who are looking to license out or transfer their trademark.

    A trade secret will naturally vary from sector to sector and can include formulas, databases, methods, processes, business plans and much more. Trade secrets are the only type of IP – a “secret sauce” that must not be disclosed and are often considered to be a company’s most precious assets and key to the company’s success. Your start-up’s trade secrets are meant for you and a failure to protect them could have massive financial and legal consequences.

    Adding Value

    Working with the Ehrlich Group gives you both complete confidence and immediate access to experts who are highly skilled in identifying and distinguishing what needs to be protected as a trade secret, as a patent, or as a combination of both, in any industry.

In this regard, our lawyers of Ehrlich, Neubauer & Melzer (EN&M) are solely focused on ensuring that any trade secrets violations will be swiftly and effectively managed.

    Many registered inventions will ultimately fade into obscurity, their value left unexploited due to meager financial resources, limited entrepreneurial skills, inconvenient market conditions and other factors.

    Often, the best way to maximize the value of patents whose commercial realization remains undeveloped is to simply sell them to a third party for whom they have strategic importance. Once the sold patents become part of a wider IP portfolio, owned by an established hi-tech corporation, they transform into powerful assets, which can often improve the competitive standing of that company in its respective market.

    But what chance does a small or medium sized start-up have, to successfully and profitably sell its patent to the highest bidder?

    With IPTrade as your partner we can make that happen. On behalf of our talented inventor clients, IPTrade is committed to exposing Israel’s vast reservoir of technology-based intellectual property to the world.
