Intellectual Property & Appeals - Tampa, Florida

The Florida Bar has certified Dineen as an expert in both intellectual property law and appellate practice – making Dineen the only lawyer in Florida to be certified in both of these practice areas at the same time.

Intellectual Property

Copyrights, Trademarks, and More

Do you run a small business? Own a website? Work with vendors and independent contractors as part of your business? Use computers? Then you probably have intellectual property issues and do not even realize it. Put Dineen’s extensive experience in copyright, trademark, trade secret and patent litigation and counseling to work for you, and ensure that you are getting full value out of the intellectual property you work hard to create.

Appeals

State, Federal, and Intellectual Property

The entry of final judgment may feel like the end of the road for your case, but it is only the beginning if you choose to pursue an appeal. And even if you won before the trial court, you may find yourself dragged into an appeal by the losing party. In either case, Dineen can assist you in navigating the appellate process.

Litigation

Litigation & Litigation Support

No one wants to be part of a lawsuit, but if you have a legal dispute, it is important to have experienced legal counsel to guide you through the litigation process. Indeed, often getting a lawyer involved earlier in a dispute, before suit is filed, can help avoid an actual lawsuit. Dineen can guide you through pre-suit negotiations, and, if need be, represent you in court or in an alternative dispute resolution proceeding.
