As an attorney, clients probably ask you questions about intellectual property matters. They may ask you for a referral. They may ask you for basic information about intellectual property registration. You may be unsure of what to tell them or to whom to direct them. Often, these clients are unsure themselves what they are really looking for.

Altus IP was formed to help both attorneys and their clients with these questions. We are the first line-of-defense in protecting intellectual property. We assist clients by analyzing their businesses and goals, identifying their potential intellectual property options, providing recommendations for utilizing those options and creating a strategic action plan to implement their Intellectual Property Portfolio. If this portfolio includes federal intellectual property registrations such as patents, trademarks or copyrights, we assist clients with finding appropriate counsel to draft and file registrations. Additionally, we work with counsel to ensure registrations are aligned with our clients' business and financial goals.

Altus IP's services include intellectual property management counseling, trade secret auditing, intellectual property blueprint design, employee intellectual property training, employee exit interviews and Human Resources counseling.
