Nate Garhart’s practice centers on protecting and maximizing the value of intellectual property, namely trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, which often represent important assets and major revenue sources for organizations ranging from startups to public companies and nonprofits.
IP law is constantly evolving, whether from new advancements such as open-source software and AI, or new legislation such as the Trademark Modernization Act (TMA), and Nate makes sure he is on top of the latest developments, frequently writing and speaking on current issues.
Clients retain Nate because while he specializes in the protection of intellectual property, he counsels with an eye on the business as a whole. The best strategy for—and results from—pursuing a trademark registration, drafting a demand letter, or negotiating a licensing agreement cannot be achieved without an understanding of the business and goals associated with the given task. After making sure he has this essential knowledge, Nate is able to identify the right legal strategy for the situation and manage deals and disputes in the most efficient and advantageous manner.
In short, Nate delivers value to clients by making sure he is working to use legal strategy as a tool to achieve the client’s business goals.
