why work with Paradies law?

Patent & Trade Secret
Patents and trade secrets are sometimes thought of as opposite sides of a coin.
A patent gives the owner a period of exclusivity for some types of inventions, but only after a proper, formal disclosure of the invention and review of the owners claims for patentability
Trade secrets protect against misappropriation of certain types of information, but only if reasonable measures are taken to keep it secret.
Trademarks protect valuable brands and can last forever.
A company's brands accrue 'good will' over time, which can become very valuable as the number of people that recognize the brand and its ability to drive sales and profits grows.
However, every brand starts out with no value, and it can take time to grow the value. Fortunately, trademarks can help by protecting the value of your company's brands.
Copyrights are inexpensive to own, and timely registration gives owners valuable rights. Copyright is the easiest to enforce, not necessarily requiring the hiring of lawyers to take effective action to stop copyright infringement.
Copyright only protects creative expression, but it's not only for artists, photographers, authors and designers. Every company benefits by owning & registering its copyrights in the creative works that bring value to the business.
