Companies engaging in electronic funds transfer, online marketing, online transaction processing and other electronic commerce face an ever–changing legal environment. They need attorneys who not only understand their business, but also marketplace trends, the evolving legal landscape and their interplay with information technology.
At Mitts Law, our attorneys have the combination of business and legal experience needed in order to best assist companies to succeed and conquer the unique challenges posed by the internet age.
One of those challenges stems from online anonymity and the resulting proliferation of false and defamatory statements on the internet and on social media in particular. Mitts Law possesses the experience and expertise to utilize the legal process to uncover the identity of individuals who make defamatory statements online and hold them accountable for the harm their false words inflict, while "setting the record straight" for the victims of online libel and defamation.
We counsel clients of all sizes who come to us with a wide variety of needs including software licensing, website development, domain name disputes, “cybersmears” and “blogswarms,” online advertising, vendor agreements and the protection of trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights and technology rights. Depending upon the circumstances, our experienced attorneys assist clients with development, drafting agreements, evaluating disputes, conducting negotiations and, if necessary, pursuing litigation.
As laws, regulations, and workplace expectations continuously change and evolve, employers must be nimble, adjusting their policies and procedures when appropriate and being prepared to handle disputes efficiently and effectively. The talented legal team at Mitts Law can make a significant positive impact on the way in which a company anticipates and manages its employment challenges. We listen to our clients, understand their needs and develop innovative strategies to help them achieve their goals as effectively and efficiently as possible.
Our expertise in this area includes litigation in federal and state courts and before administrative agencies, as well as mediation and arbitration, and involves statutes such as Title VII, FLSA, FMLA, ADEA, ADA, OSHA and the WARN Act.
We also counsel clients in various aspects of the employer–employee relationship including personnel policies, employment contracts, severance agreements, noncompetition, nonsolicitation, and nondisclosure agreements, workplace training and investigations and compliance with all employment–related statutes. Mitts Law also advises clients regarding regulatory compliance, employment handbooks, and the hiring, firing and disciplining of employees. Our practical solutions are designed to successfully address our clients’ current workplace issues and position them to prevent or minimize disputes in the future.
Our attorneys have a wealth of litigation experience and appreciate that litigation can significantly affect a company’s ability to achieve its business objectives. Beyond any potential financial impact, litigation can also negatively impact productivity, morale and peace of mind.
At Mitts Law, we help clients assess their options, make decisions consistent with their goals and facilitate the best possible resolution under the unique circumstances of each case. Our attorneys work closely with clients to ensure that cases are managed efficiently and resolved as expeditiously as possible.
Can you get trademark protection for your mark and, if so, how strong will it be? Are there any other similar marks out there? What does that mean for you? How might the United States Patent and Trademark Office handle the registration of your mark, or decide if there were a dispute? Do you need to make changes to your mark to provide stronger protection and guard against potential infringement of other marks?
Mitts Law helps clients who need trademark protection answer those questions and more so that they can make the most efficient use of their resources and obtain as much protection as possible for their marks. Our attorneys will evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your mark and provide you with a clear assessment of its viability.
Our skilled attorneys can also guide you through the trademark registration process. Every day your trademark remains unregistered, it is further exposed to potential infringement. This can result in the loss of the hard work and the investment of resources you devoted to building your trademark to the benefit of one of your competitors. Mitts Law helps clients avoid such an outcome by carefully and expeditiously managing their trademark registrations with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, helping ensure that they obtain the protection they, and their brand, design, logo or slogan, deserves.
