Foster Growth and Minimize AI Risk with Expert IP Legal Counsel

With the emergence of generative AI tools, companies have new opportunities to drive growth and innovation. However, if they don’t put in place the proper policies, protections, and safeguards, they risk the loss of intellectual property and business harm. MBHB has the knowledge and experience to help protect innovation and avoid pitfalls.

MBHB advises clients across the high tech, manufacturing, medical devices, and life sciences industries to help them leverage AI (including generative AI tools) in a safe and compliant manner. Our experienced team of practitioners draws on more than 15 years of experience working on AI-related IP issues to help clients protect their IP assets and mitigate risks in a dynamic environment marked by rapid advancements in technology.

We have been involved in AI from the start. MBHB practitioners drafted early patent applications for machine learning technologies and assisted clients with generative AI projects well before the latest large language models took the world by storm. Today, we work with clients to secure and enforce IP rights for generative AI-related tools and systems. We also help them avoid having their confidential information leak into the training of generative AI models.


Broad Experience in AI

MBHB’s experience in the AI space spans everything from AI regulation to traditional machine learning to generative AI. Our practitioners work closely with their clients’ leadership teams to create AI usage policies that help them protect IP and safeguard valuable company data and information. We address AI as it pertains to the full breadth of IP – patents, copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks, and beyond.

MBHB practitioners are actively engaged in discussions surrounding legal issues related to AI technologies and are sought out for our expertise on AI-related law. As a result, we are well-positioned to counsel clients throughout their AI journeys, wherever their business may take them.

The firm is committed to building long-term relationships based on trust, transparency, and results. We strategically partner with clients to provide dedicated support to help them understand and respond to new developments, continually protect their IP assets, and make progress toward their business goals.
