Protecting and Developing Your Business Ideas

If you are going to devote your creative and financial resources to developing a business idea or other property, you will of course want to make sure that such properties are legally protected. The New York firm of Jacobs & Burleigh LLP has long provided its clients with dedicated services to protect those properties.

Jacobs & Burleigh provides experienced, careful and skillful lawyering by attorneys who offer the experience of a large firm together with the energy and individualized attention of a small firm, and we do so at a reasonable cost. We represent a broad array of creative individuals and entrepreneurs from throughout the United States and abroad, in such matters as:

  • Book and magazine publishing
  • Television documentaries
  • Entertainment law, including licensing, production and distribution agreements for Animation properties
  • Video game development and licensing
  • General commercial litigation

We Offer Experience, Service and Longevity

Our organizing principle is that each client has the right to expect careful judgment, strong advocacy, consistent creativity, responsiveness and efficiency. Our work reflects the vision of our senior partner Arthur J. Jacobs, who founded the firm in 1995, and in more than 40 years of experience as a litigator and counselor has acquired a reputation for a determined dedication to the needs of the firm's clients. Most of our attorneys have been with our firm for more than 10 years, and all have worked at large firms before coming to Jacobs & Burleigh. We have the experience, knowledge and skill required to give our clients strong counseling and representation, but we never sacrifice personal service to do so.

Our clients do not get lost in the shuffle of unnecessary personnel and staff members. We are committed to understanding our clients' needs and helping them achieve their legal goals.

We Grow With Our Clients

Many of the clients we work with come to us early in the development of their business. When we begin working with clients, we help them obtain the initial trademark, copyright or other intellectual property protection they need. As their business develops, our representation will often grow as well, to develop, enforce and leverage their brands and IP portfolios. We work with individuals, small privately held businesses, as well as large multinational corporations, offering them counsel in all aspects of intellectual property matters. Furthermore, because we are a small firm, we are able to help our clients, who have just begun to develop their businesses by giving them guidance concerning the legal and business practices of their industries.
