Get Informed with Informed IP

by Sean McCarthy

As a business person, you no doubt are aware that bankruptcy effects the state of trade. In day to day operations, when providing goods or services to a struggling entity or individual you know, getting money due from your customers can prove to be difficult.

Think you have an idea? Like a really good idea? Well, it may be worth nothing if you don't get the proper protection in place. But how do you know if you need protection? And another question: how do you know what kind of protection you need? A patent? Trademark?

Gutwein Law is five! But what's next?

by Stuart Gutwein

Today marks Gutwein Law's fifth birthday, and we couldn't be more excited! It's been an unbelievable five years and we're incredibly happy to reflect on the ways we've grown. To help us celebrate this milestone, we wanted to take a look back at where we've been in the past five years, and where we heading in the next five.

So, why'd we start Gutwein Law? Well, as we always say, our firm exists for one reason – to help the best, most forward-thinking businesses in the world grow through high-level legal counsel. When we founded our firm, we knew right away we had a different perspective. As you may already know, we not only practice law on a daily basis, but business, too. A number of firm's team members own businesses themselves, so we know first-hand what our clients are after (sometimes before they do). We believe this approach, along with our other ideals, has strongly contributed to our success over the past five years.

My Summer of Experience and Involvement

by Sierra Murray

Think of a lawyer. What comes to mind? If you’re like some of America, you may not necessarily be thrilled with the image. But throw that idea out the window because I want to tell you about my experience working as a summer associate at Gutwein Law.                   

While wrapping up my last days here at the firm, I was asked to write a blog post about my experiences. The truth is, I could probably fill much more than a 500-word blog post about what I learned this summer, but I’ve done my best to keep it short. Here it goes:
