What We Do

The firm represents a broad spectrum of clients ranging from individual artists and inventors, to medium-sized companies, to large publicly-held corporations.


Obtaining a patent is a complex process that is greatly simplified with the assistance of an experienced professional. Our lawyers have prepared hundreds of patent applications on all kinds of inventions ranging from toys to aircraft engines.


Trademarks are the brands that one entity uses to distinguish its goods and services from the goods and services of others. We routinely prosecute trademark applications in the United States Patent and trademark Office.

IP Litigation

Our attorneys represent litigants in federal court, both plaintiffs and defendants, who are involved in intellectual property litigation. We also represent parties in ex parte appeals and in inter partes disputes before the United States Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

IP Mediation

If your only tool is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail. At THL we offer alternative dispute resolution services. Matthew J. Ladenheim is an NCDRC Certified Superior Court Mediator
