Our Philosophy

Harvey & Company offers clients the advantages of dealing with lawyers and professional staff who are highly experienced in counseling and litigation in intellectual property matters. At the same time, clients enjoy the personal attention and focused quality of a smaller boutique practice. The firm’s professionals are trained to provide the highest standard of service while making judicious use of legal resources.

The object is to practice law in a way that offers clients practical solutions and adds significant value to their businesses. We achieve this through careful selection and hands-on training of our young lawyers, thoughtful, business-goal driven strategic planning in partnership with our clients, and cost-effective, well-considered use of firm and client resources.

Intellectual Property Law

Intellectual property includes an individual’s or business’s intangible assets, such as trademarks, trade dress, rights of publicity and privacy, copyrights, trade secrets and patents. Such assets are protectable under a variety of federal and state laws covering distinctive, source-identifying symbols and marks, copyrightable works, original ideas, discoveries, and inventions.
