Miller & Martin welcomes attorney Paul Weidlich to the firm’s Chattanooga office as a member of its Intellectual Property Practice Group.
With a focus on complex issues relating to intellectual property, Mr. Weidlich’s practice includes patents and trademarks portfolio development, preparation, and prosecution; trade secrets, copyrights, licensing agreements; media, advertising and promotional law and intellectual property litigation. He works with clients in several industries, such as construction equipment, plants, and control systems for asphalt road building, aggregate processing and concrete production, food manufacturing, medical devices, software development, financial services, textile manufacturing, and flooring, to name a few.
“I decided to join Miller & Martin for a number of reasons including their more robust platform with a deep bench in intellectual property, their geographical reach with offices in different cities and the breadth of practice areas," said Mr. Weidlich. "All of which allow me to better and more fully serve my clients and continue to grow my practice.”
Mr. Weidlich’s clients trust and rely on him to protect their intellectual property rights and defend against any infringement claims of others. His approach provides his clients with effective strategies for obtaining successful outcomes for their intellectual property matters, said officials. Mr. Weidlich’s clients range from large multi-national companies to individual entrepreneurs.
