Intellectual property (IP) litigation is a branch of corporate law in which attorneys work to protect the intellectual property rights of corporations. Instances of IP infringement can be costly and damage a business's reputation or brand. IP can include patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. IP attorneys are experts in their field and try cases before regulatory bodies, judges, and juries. Businesses of all sizes and industries work with IP attorneys to register and protect their intellectual property. In cases of infringement, IP attorneys can pursue financial compensation and injunctions. IP attorneys often use intellectual property management software to track and manage clients’ intellectual property and case history, as well as for research related to IP cases.
