Whether you are a business or an individual, if you have introduced a brand, created a slogan, designed a logo or composed an artistic work, or if you have developed proprietary business knowledge, a new product, process or other innovation, you have a strong financial interest in protecting your intellectual property from unauthorized use. Trademark or copyright infringement may prevent you from obtaining all revenue your idea could generate.

At The Law Office of Geralyn F. Noonan , meeting your needs, goals and objectives is our primary consideration as we develop a strategy to protect your intellectual property. Good communication allows us to give you the best legal advice for your situation. Contact us online or call us at 239-694-7070 to schedule an appointment today.

Copyrights and Trademarks

Generally speaking, copyrights apply to songs, visual arts, literary works, performing arts and periodicals. Trademarks are symbols, pictures or words that sellers use to show the origin of the products or services. The Law Office of Geralyn F. Noonan can help you protect your intellectual property from infringement or unauthorized use by registering your copyright with the United States Copyright Office or your trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (PTO).


A United States patent protects inventions that are new and unobvious. Such inventions can include products, processes, chemical compositions and ornamental designs. Geralyn Noonan can advise you about licensing your invention and the steps you can take to prevent infringement of your patent. She also works closely with a local registered patent attorney to obtain strong patent protection for your invention.

Proprietary Business Information

Many businesses rely on information, processes and methods developed in-house for their success. Revealing certain information could have a negative impact on the success of your operation. Trade secrets including formulas, processes, business practices and pricing are legally protected. We work closely with businesses of all sizes to ensure that they are doing everything they can to preserve their proprietary knowledge and protect their market advantage against unfair competition, including registering patents, copyrights and trademarks, as well as drafting noncompete and nondisclosure agreements.

Individuals who have signed noncompete agreements as a condition of their employment often have questions regarding their obligations once they leave their employer. They want to know what limitations they face in establishing their own businesses, and the extent to which they are bound by the agreement they signed. Don't take chances with the unknown. Make informed choices and contact Attorney Geralyn Noonan to find out what you can, and cannot, do.
