Attorneys Mark Warzecha and Mark Malek of Widerman Malek, P.L., recently participated on a panel discussing intellectual property considerations for a global product launch.  The speech was held at the Primerus Business and International Convocation in Miami.   The panel covered which intellectual property issues are essential in an international product launch to protect the intellectual property associated with the goods/services.

Warzecha discussed how to avoid the top mistakes encountered by companies involved with a global product launch including key points such as in which countries should a trademark be filed in, whether the mark is registerable/what makes a product name a good one, how to navigate potential problems with foreign translation, and whether the mark should be owned by the parent or foreign subsidiary.

Malek discussed international patent issues and how a firm like Widerman Malek guides companies through the process of obtaining patents in the U.S. and foreign markets and how to best protect the product’s intellectual property components.

Overall, the panel was an incredible resource explaining intellectual property protection in both domestic and foreign markets.

Widerman Malek attorney Ed Kinberg, the head of the Government Contracts Division for the firm taught a class at the Space Coast Community Law School on “Business Entities: How to Start a Small Business.”  The Space Coast Community Law School offers free legal seminars to the public on a variety of topics. Their goal is to offer a valuable educational community service to people who may have a need, interest, or just want to learn more about the law. The seminars are presented by local judges and attorneys and address general legal concepts.

The holidays have all but wrapped up, but not before Widerman Malek had a chance to hold its annual Christmas Party (this time for the adults). The photos of the event below are courtesy of Danielle Giles Photography.
