Intellectual Property
Concepts, strategies, ideas, know-how, inventions – your business success is often based upon and tied to your intellectual capital.

We want to help you protect, commercialize and maximize your IP.

Complex Litigation and Dispute Resolution
Blackstone Counsel has served as lead counsel in numerous complex litigation matters, including those related to systems, intellectual property, domain names, employment, and commercial and contract disputes.

Blackstone Counsel assists you in developing effective human resource policies, in order to avoid disputes and litigation, minimize employee turnover and improve employee morale.
