Law Firm Overview FREE CONSULTATIONAt Sheldon Mak & Anderson, we offer powerful protection for your unique ideas. As intellectual property attorneys, we recognize that innovation is your competitive edge - and it needs protection. For decades, clients have entrusted their valuable intellectual property matters to us. We have rewarded that trust with an unparalleled track record of success.
As intellectual property law attorneys, we can accomplish what most attorneys cannot: we can help create wealth for you. Patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets are assets that can be worth much more than their cost. By using our skills and experience to protect your innovations, we help optimize your returns.
Intellectual property is not a "one-lawyer-fits-all" specialty. The tough-as-nails litigator may not be the first choice to handle a sensitive business negotiation or settlement. We provide experienced attorneys with expertise in a variety of areas who can meet the special requirements of any situation. Whatever or wherever your intellectual property needs, we have the right attorney for you.
At Sheldon Mak & Anderson, our job is to help our clients avoid unnecessary litigation. But when it cannot be avoided, our job is to win. With our combination of litigation skills and scientific expertise, we are able to offer you the strongest representation possible.

Areas of Law Description
Sheldon Mak & Anderson offers legal representation on the following areas of intellectual property:
Your patent entitles you to a solid fortification around your asset. But it's the builder who determines the strength of that structure. Because we have worked as chemists, biologists, engineers, doctors and physicists, we're better able to anticipate potential weaknesses. We work with clients in all phases of patent procurement, including application preparation, prosecution, and appellate proceedings in the U.S. and abroad, through filings under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), in the European Patent Office (EPO) and in individual foreign countries.
Developing a trademark can be filled with peril. Businesses can select descriptive words, symbols or expressions which are, in reality, in the public domain. A mark available in one country may be unavailable or even offensive in others. Or, faulty due diligence can fail to uncover a mark's current use by others. The result: a patent infringement suit. To avoid infringement suits, we can screen your proposed trademarks nationally and internationally within hours.
Protecting a copyright can be the difference between profiting from your work and watching someone else profit. Profits from licensing and enforcement of copyrights have grown tremendously in recent years. In addition, this country's adoption of the Berne Convention makes your U.S. copyright enforceable in many foreign countries. We can assist you with understanding, obtaining, licensing and protecting copyrights-in short, maximizing the advantages the law affords you.
Our litigation teams have a well-deserved reputation for quality. With our advanced understanding of intellectual property law and our litigation experience, we‘¦re better able to seize and hold the initiative. This allows us to control the course of the litigation better... and to procure meaningful settlement negotiations, if at all possible. We are highly experienced in all aspects of complex intellectual property litigation procedures including:
Temporary restraining orders
Expert witness testimony
Product surveys and
- Trade Secrets
Sheldon Mak & Anderson can help you identify your important trade secrets and can ensure that your protection program meets the requirements of trade secret law. That usually includes establishing in-house procedures for handling trade secrets and preparing appropriate employment and confidentiality agreements. If you‘¦d like to enhance the return on your trade secrets, we can also help you negotiate the sale of your commercially marketable trade secrets under favorable terms.
As the world continues to shrink, we recognize the need for protecting our clients' intellectual property in foreign countries. Our practice extends to nearly every country worldwide. We assist our U.S.-based clients with their foreign intellectual property concerns. We have developed long-standing, close relationships with firms and experts worldwide to enable us to offer our clients in-depth experience in foreign law. Our international practice goes two ways as we serve individual and corporate clients in foreign countries seeking protection of their intellectual property in the United States.
- Alternative Dispute Resolution
Sheldon Mak & Anderson offers ADR providers, litigants and their counsel with cost efficient and prompt resolution to intellectual property conflicts through our specialized IP alternative dispute resolution services (ADR). Neutrals in our ADR group combine the best of both worlds; facilitative negotiating skill and IP evaluative expertise.
