Origin: Latin | Meaning: New Thing
At Res Nova Law, we aim to be as innovative and entrepreneurial as our clients are, and that's why we call ourselves the "new thing." We’re a modern and tech-savvy intellectual property and business law firm based in beautiful Portland, Oregon, with over 60 years of combined experience serving innovative companies and entrepreneurs in the Pacific Northwest. We represent businesses of all types and sizes, including creatives, startups, midsize and quickly growing companies.

Patents • Trademarks • Copyrights • Trade Secrets
Just like real property and personal property, the legal system protects “intellectual” property. This includes inventions; business names and branding; secret formulas, processes, and methods used in production; and creative works such as illustrations, songs, photographs, poems, and sculptures. Our experienced intellectual property attorneys can help identify, manage, and protect your business's intellectual property assets; and enforce your intellectual property rights against infringers.
Startups • Contracts • Financing • Licensing • & More
Our extensive experience includes drafting and negotiating contracts for businesses of all types and sizes, including intellectual property assignment and licensing agreements, independent contractor agreements, supplier agreements, and much more. Very often, the best strategy is simply to prevent litigation. Having experienced business lawyers advise you can help preserve your business’s legal rights, help your business run more smoothly and efficiently, and avoid potential litigation.
