Having a business formation is the foundation of every company. A properly formed business entity is crucial as it can shield the owners from personal liability, as well as provide a framework for the owners to operate and hopefully minimize internal disputes.
There are various possible business formations, such as limited liability companies (LLCs), C and S corporations, professional corporations, series LLCs, non-profit corporations, B corporations, etc. Let Kramer Law Firm, P.C. work with you to determine which entity will work best for your needs.
Intellectual property, or IP, is property that essentially comes from the mind. It is a catch-all phrase that encompasses patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets.
For each of the IP types, with the exception of trade secrets, you are given a bundle of rights in exchange for registering your IP with the government. Thus, you essentially have a monopoly and can prevent others from using your mark if it’s a trademark; using, selling, making, or distributing your patented invention; or using your copyrighted material. Kramer Law Firm, P.C. can assess your IP needs and implement intellectual property to best-benefit your business. In addition, Kameron W. Kramer is a registered patent attorney.
