Transactions & Litigation
Barokas, Martin & Tomlinson is located in the heart of Seattle, Washington, a center of the information economy. As vibrant companies have started successful businesses around us, we have served them, protecting their most valuable brands, franchises, technologies and licenses.
Even the smallest start up needs to protect their intellectual property. We also assist clients with registration of their work and franchise with various federal and state government entities. We advise clients to ensure that they do not enter into improvident transactions that endanger what they have worked so hard on developing and marketing. As well, we advise clients to make certain they understand the true value of what they purchase and the restrictions to which they agree. Finally, if, and when, the need arises, we have the expertise to enforce our clients' interests through litigation.
