Intellectual Property Law

Intellectual Property law covers the protection of ideas. In addition to patents and trademarks for businesses, this area of law provides attorneys who can represent individuals and businesses with copyright matters, computer law, and other aspects of technology.

The following list represents the subject matter panels established by the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) for Intellectual Property Law. Some subject matter panels may not have lawyers participating under them. In this case, LRS has not found successful attorney applicants who qualify for a particular subject matter. LRS is not permitted to add attorneys who do not meet LRS standards. LRS will still maintain these panels in the event attorneys who do qualify for the subject matter will be available to represent members of the public in the future.

All of the subject matter panels listed in the area of Intellectual Property Law are preceded by the designation IP. The areas are listed below and are located in a drop down box on the “Get a Referral” form.

  • IP: Computer Law
  • IP: Copyrights
  • IP: Litigation
  • IP: Patents
  • IP: Trade Secrets
  • IP: Trademarks/Trade Dress
