Intellectual Property is one of the most lucrative yet misunderstood assets of an individual or company. It is the byproduct of human creativity as well as the fuel that drives our economy. Yet such property can disappear in an instant with a careless e-mail or a disgruntled employee, robbing an individual or a company of its most vital assets. Large companies can hire legions of attorneys to guard these assets. You should have the same protection.
