Our knowledge
Brown and Michaels focuses on intellectual property law — patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. Since our founding in 1980, in Ithaca, in the Finger Lakes region of central New York State, we have enjoyed representing a wide range of clients both locally and world-wide, including individual inventors, research institutions, high tech start-ups, established companies, and fortune 500 companies. We appreciate the different needs of each type of client, have the technical expertise to handle any technical subject matter, and find great satisfaction in helping each client achieve its goals. We are highly responsive to clients and deliver high quality work at very reasonable rates.

Some recent product of our work...

The above lists represent the culmination of some of our work with clients to secure legal devices by which they can protect their rights (e.g., patents and trademark registrations). While this patent and trademark preparation and prosecution comprises an important aspect of our services and our clients’ needs, our work does not stop there. We offer clients a robust list of services to protect their rights and further their business interests. Please see below for a fuller list of services we regularly provide for clients.
