Glen Ellyn Lawyers for Intellectual Property Rights

Comprehensive Advocacy in Patents, Trademarks and Copyright Law

At the Law Offices of Mark A. Hamill, P.C., in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, our practice focuses exclusively on the diverse issues related to intellectual property on behalf of our individual and corporate clients. With broad experience in a range of industries, we are able to provide sophisticated counsel and advocacy in this highly complex area of law.

  • Patents: A patent protects a client's novel, useful and non-obvious inventions for a commercially important period of time (14-20 years). Patents provide their owners with the exclusive right to make, use, sell, offer for sale, and import client invention. We perform patent searches, prepare and prosecute United States and foreign patent applications, resolve patent related disputes, and pursue infringement claims on behalf of our individual and corporate clients.
  • Trademarks: A trademark is a word, symbol, design combination of letters or numbers, or other device which identifies and distinguishes a client's products from those of others in the marketplace. A Service Mark provides the same function for a client's services. Both trademarks and service marks may be registered in the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and with the appropriate government entities in countries outside of the United States. Registration helps to establish a mark's owner's rights in a mark and facilitates the prevention of unauthorized use of the mark by others. We can assist you with clearance opinions, registration of your marks in the United States and in other countries, licensing of your rights in a mark, or in licensing the rights of others in their mark.
  • Copyright law: Images and written language can be protected by copyright law. Our role on behalf of writers, artists, intellectuals and musicians is to ensure our clients are not infringing on other's copyrights as well as to prosecute against those who have infringed. Our DuPage County copyright law attorneys can provide copyright clearance options, assist with registration and inform you of your rights.
  • Trade secrets: A trade secret is anything that derives value from being confidential in a business setting. The trade secret will have commercial value to a competitor. Our firm will represent clients if another source comes into possession of a trade secret. We can also help clients prevent the exposure of trade secrets.

Licensing and Contract Negotiations

Our lawyers provide assistance with licensing in all areas of Intellectual Property, including copyright, trade secrets, trademarks and patents. We negotiate and draft licensing agreements on behalf of intellectual property rights holders as well as those interested in obtaining a license from others.

Our Practice and Philosophy

In order to execute our "less is more philosophy" — more personal attention for hand-selected clients — our primary attorney Mark Hamill left a large Chicago firm to open a private suburban office. With this philosophy, our clients receive more personal attention from experienced attorneys at cost effective rates. Our firm can do this since we are not burdened with the high "downtown" legal overhead which afflicts many big-city firms.

Dedication and Client Commitment

We understand that being available, responsive and effective are critical to our clients' interests. You can trust that we will provide the personalized attention you need and work to achieve positive results with minimal cost and impact. Please contact us by calling 630-984-5339 or contact us by e-mail to arrange a consultation with our Glen Ellyn attorneys for intellectual property rights.
