Intellectual Property Job Description

For individuals and corporations alike, intellectual property is one of the most valuable commodities. And like all valuable commodities, intellectual property must be protected.

That's where experienced intellectual property legal professionals play an essential role. They provide counsel to clients to establish and protect intellectual property, issue licensure agreements, negotiate settlements and consult with clients regarding changes and opportunities related to existing IP.

There are six distinct areas of intellectual property law, and professionals in the field typically have expertise in all six. They are:

  • Copyright Law
  • Patent Law
  • Trademark Law
  • Licensing
  • Unfair Competition
  • Trade Secret Law
