IP Services

Crawford Maunu is a full-service intellectual property (IP) law firm. Our firm’s IP practice areas are diverse and include, for example, strategic counseling, planning and asset management, patent and trademark portfolio development, and intellectual property litigation. Our attorneys specialize in a wide range of technologies, based not only on our technical degrees but also on real-world corporate and business experience. Using this complement of IP expertise in planning, management, and litigation, we offer cost-effective counseling from a unique perspective.
