At Symbus, intellectual property is at our core. A business typically focuses on this area of the law at the beginning, creating a brand identity through trademarks and copyrights, and protecting its unique advances by seeking to secure patents. Now Symbus is expanding into additional areas of the law, offering seasoned professionals to our clients as their businesses mature and new requirements emerge.
