Ones to Watch in IP, 2016
Maxey Law Offices, PLLC is a boutique law firm that limits its practice exclusively to intellectual property law. The firm was founded in 2008 and since then we have become known as the “turn-to firm for intellectual property.” We continue to build our reputation by providing world-class service and representation in both contested and transactional IP matters.
It is our belief that protecting intangible assets such as brands, know-how, and reputation is instrumental for businesses operating in today’s ever becoming “flat world.” With thousands of almost seamless and borderless transactions occurring throughout the world each day, a business’s ability to stop another from treading upon its brands, know-how, and reputation is critical for survivability and successful growth.
Maximising the value of IP assets and protecting them
With increasing pressure being placed upon organisations to maintain profitability while staying competitive within the global market, it is critical for organisations to ensure that they are maximising the value of their IP assets. Maximising the value of IP assets can only be done when those assets are properly protected. Failing to properly protect an IP asset opens paths through which competitors can navigate to exploit that asset. This ability causes the asset to be devalued, a result that likely would not have otherwise occurred if the asset was properly protected. In sum, proper protection leads to maximised value.
Developing, exploiting, and safeguarding IP assets
Astute business leaders are acutely tuned to the importance of identifying and protecting IP assets that bring value to their businesses. These leaders understand that intellectual property law is a complex body of law filled with traps hidden within countless nuances, and they appreciate the value and importance of consulting with proper legal counsel in order to identify and protect their valuable IP assets.

Challenges in 2016 and beyond
Intellectual property has become a forefront issue in a new global economy realised by quickly developing technology. Intellectual property law, both from a national and international perspective, is currently in great flux as the law tries to catch up with legal issues created by technology growth. New international treaties are being implemented and national laws seem to change almost daily. As an IP boutique law firm, clients expect you to have a great command of the law. Staying current with the law and understanding how the changes will affect your clients today and in the future is likely the biggest challenge facing our industry. But, it’s also an opportunity to demonstrate your ability and standout from the pack.
