Intellectual Property Law
With the advent of the internet, intellectual property law has become even more complex than it was in the past. It is an area of the law that covers intangible property, such as trademarks, patents, trade secrets, and special processes. Intellectual property law includes a wide range of legal matters, such as non-compete clauses for employees who leave the company or are terminated.

Real Estate Law
When buying, leasing or selling a property for business purposes, it is important to be compliant with all laws. Also, it is important to know about land issues, easements and other potential hurdles in advance. Real estate contracts can be lengthy and confusing, and some business owners inadvertently sign unfavorable contracts without the help and guidance of a legal professional. With an attorney, a commercial client either has the assurance that the contract is favorable or understands any potential risks of less-than-favorable terms. In Washington, there are also issues to think about with new construction plans on vacant lots. For example, someone who purchases land to build a business structure may not know to inquire about the need for environmental impact statements. These may or may not be required.

Bryn Peterson has helped many business clients with the legal aspects of buying, selling, leasing and building commercial properties.
