We provide sound legal advice and creative options in our core practice areas including general business law, intellectual property, real estate, and estate planning. We are proud of our successful track record with our long-standing corporate and individual clients and strive to obtain timely resolutions to even the most complex of matters. Our emphasis on regular communication with our clients is one of the hallmarks of our success. We provide our local, regional and national corporate clients with the prompt personal attention and individualized service of in-house counsel.

Wills, Trusts and Estates. Proper estate planning is necessary to provide peace of mind and security for yourself and your loved ones. Proper planning can (i) reduce the taxes and expenses that will arise at death, (ii) protect your minor children and/or pets by providing for a guardian of your choice, and (iii) provide that your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes. We assist clients with their estate plans, and executors, trustees and other fiduciaries with probate, trust and estate administration. Our practice also includes guardianship proceedings and special needs trusts. As part of our services we prepare Powers of Attorneys, Healthcare Proxies and Advance Directives/Living Wills. We are one of the few firms in the area who can help you provide for your pets if you die or are disabled.

Intellectual Property.  Bowers & del Peral provides intellectual property counsel all stages of registration, licensing, mediation and litigation to develop, protect and increase the value of our clients' intellectual property portfolios. Our intellectual property practice focuses on trademark, copyright, trade secrets, and unfair competition matters, as well as publicity rights, to the private, business, and entertainment communities, both locally and worldwide. We work closely with our clients from the beginning of their endeavors, to identify existing intellectual property rights, as well as at advanced stages of business operation, to effectively open new revenue streams. We routinely advise individuals, sole proprietors, start-ups, and mid-size businesses of all kinds on protecting, branding, marketing and monetizing their intellectual property rights in their products and services.
