Gesmer Updegrove’s attorneys represent clients in an extensive range of trademark, patent infringement, and copyright disputes. Our intellectual property and technology practice includes prosecution and defense of suits alleging trade secret misappropriation, equivalency, infringement, confidentiality and false advertising.
We initiate claims in both the federal and state courts to protect and enforce your ownership rights and to prevent trade name misuse. Conversely, we are prepared to aggressively defend against false allegations of infringement.
As part of protecting your ownership interests, our attorneys provide insight and guidance on protecting the security and privacy of your data. Our attorneys are familiar with the state and federal laws touching on privacy, such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Graham-Leach-Bliley, and “Red Flag” requirements, and Massachusetts’ regulatory scheme mandating comprehensive written information security plans. We strive to guide our clients through the statutory and regulatory jungle that governs business and personal data in a concise and efficient manner.
