About Us

Paradies® law combines a boutique law firm experience with fair, flat fee pricing for entrepreneurs and small businesses. We are located in the Tampa/St. Petersburg region of Florida, and our team of legal professionals will help you to own, protect and grow the value of your intellectual property or "IP"! So many business owners find out too late that they don't even own the IP created for their business.  Your Paradies® law team will include a Florida bar certified intellectual property (IP) attorney and registered patent attorney and an intellectual property paralegal. Paradies® law is innovative and constantly seeks to improve responsiveness and reduce costs of legal services provided. Try chatting with us (limited hours) or contact us by email or telephone! Tell us what you would like or don't like. We're committed to providing you with the best service.

If you want to own, protect and grow the value of your IP, the first step is to have the proper agreements in place:

  • Bylaws, Shareholder Subscription Agreements and Operating Agreements are used to keep track of ownership and other rights of shareholders in your company.
  • Assignments and Work Made for Hire agreements are used to own intellectual property (IP) rights developed by your employees and outside vendors.
  • Licenses allow you (in-licensing) or others (out-licensing) to use IP as permitted by the terms and conditions of the license.
  • Releases protect against future lawsuits when using anything in which someone else might have rights, such as IP rights or right of privacy or publicity.
  • Terms of Use and Privacy Statements are agreements for your websites, subscription services and events, protecting you from liability and preventing lost value in your IP rights.

We can help you with these foundational agreements. You don't want to do anything without laying a firm foundation for your company. You need these agreement to own your IP.

The next step is to protect your trademarks, copyrights, domain names, trade secrets and patents. If done right, registering your IP rights, using these tools, will add value, build equity in your business and reduce your risk of losing your rights. This will give you peace of mind and allow you to recruit others to help you grow your business.

  • Trademarksservice marks and trade dress identify your company as the source of goods and services.
  • Copyright registration can give you important extra rights including statutory damages and attorneys' fees. 
  • Domain names are not traditional IP but can be protected as IP rights.
  • Trade secrets are defined by state and federallaw and require reasonable care in protecting your commercially valuable information from public disclosure.
  • Patent rights give the owner the right to exclude others from practicing the ideas captured in the claims of an issued patent for 20 years from the date of filing of a valid, unexpired U.S. patent.
