Seattle Patent, Trademark, and IP Lawyer with Nationwide Reach

Tim Billick Intellectual Property Attorney

Intellectual Property and Commercial Litigation

Many litigators will bill you in order to cover their overhead costs without actually solving your problem. My approach is different. Without huge overhead to support, I can customize a dispute resolution strategy that drives your business forward and protects your rights.

At TBillick Law, we use sophisticated tools that large firms seldom use. (Most software companies charge by the number of licenses, and bigger firms rarely want to make that level of investment on top of training staff.) As a smaller firm, we can adapt quickly to new tech and pass those savings to our clients. 

I have helped resolve IP disputes and commercial matters in both state and federal courts across the U.S. With countless of court appearances and trials under my belt, my partners and I understand the risks of this path and we can guide you through it. 

Utility and Design Patent Protection

Your ideas are the backbone of your business. I’ve prosecuted patents covering consumer products, outdoor recreation equipment, construction tools, and medical devices. I love learning about new technologies, and I’m looking forward to hearing about yours.

Your brand includes your name, logo, slogans, and “look and feel” of whatever customers see. If you don’t protect your brand through careful preparation and enforcement, you could lose valuable rights. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen. I’ve prosecuted trademarks in the consumer products, medical technology, manufacturing, and fitness industries; and I’m happy to help in yours too.

Entertainment Contracts

As a former venue owner and gigging musician, I am familiar with various sides of the music industry. I have negotiated and drafted employment contracts, settlements, non-disclosure agreements, and other commercial contracts for artists, game developers, and inventors. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that I will help you avoid any pitfalls that may surface along the way.

Technology/IP Licensing

You have a great idea, and you figured out how to secure your intellectual property rights. Now you may want to license it to others and enjoy the fruits of your labor. If you need help in developing, licensing, selling, and maintaining ownership over your creations throughout our career, I can help. I have years of experience working with entrepreneurs, game developers, inventors, engineers, and other professions.
