Breadth and depth of intellectual property services.

At McInnes & McLane, we operate on a 360-degree service model. This means our IP specialists are not limited to writing contracts or securing patents and trademarks. They’re also skilled in dispute resolution and litigation, should such recourse become necessary for an optimum business outcome. We protect what you have created and are as comfortable doing so offensively as we are defensively. If the best offense is a good defense, then you can be confident you have both with McInnes & McLane.
