Silvershift® provides legal services representing clients in both transactions and litigation. For more than a quarter century our practice has intertwined with law firms, corporations and individuals, from the famous and prestigious to the anonymous and downtrodden. As a result, we combine “BigLaw” and Fortune 100 experience and quality with small firm and entrepreneurial flexibility and responsiveness. We are particularly adept at devising creative solutions to the difficult legal issues that often confront our clients.
The legal services Silvershift® offers comprise transactions and litigation related to many disciplines, though primarily intellectual property, corporate, information technology and entertainment and media.
Silvershift® offers the services of Joe Bogdan, an experienced executive and lawyer licensed to practice in California, Connecticut and Illinois, and who for over 25 years has been at the forefront of developments in intellectual property and the businesses that rely upon it. For larger engagements, we have access to a network of additional skilled lawyers, ready to provide both subject matter expertise and heavy-lifting personpower, to ensure that our clients’ matters always receive the effective representation they need and deserve.
At Silvershift®, we strive to address the legal needs of entrepreneurial clients, both individual and corporate, and both large and small, by providing the maximum value for the fewest dollars. We are committed to providing legal services and achieving results that are both fairly priced and exceed our clients’ expectations.
Intellectual Property: Silvershift® provides comprehensive intellectual property law services to our clients, including trademark and copyright prosecution; trade secret protection; patent, trademark and copyright licensing; intellectual property counseling; internal intellectual property audits; and external intellectual property due diligence.
Entertainment and Media: With extensive experience in the live events, music, motion picture/television, publishing, consumer products and video game industries, Silvershift® provides a unique depth of insight into legal matters relating to entertainment and media.
