We understand the value of your brand identity and strategy. Whether it’s your company’s name, a product line, a house mark, logo, service mark, or any other trademark-related matter, we can provide you with invaluable advice at all stages of the brand-building and brand maintenance process.
We assist our clients in their selection of trademarks that are legally protectable and marketable. Our attorneys analyze trademark searches to help clear marks for use and registration, prepare applications for registration (domestically and internationally), and prosecute the applications both in the U.S. and foreign jurisdictions. We help new and expanding companies to develop “budget-feasible” brand protection strategies.
Our clients value our experience at maximizing the value of their trademarks in commercial transactions. Our attorneys have extensive experience in structuring and negotiating trademark licenses, product distribution agreements, co-branding relationships, sponsorship, and other trademark sensitive arrangements in numerous industries, including toys, apparel, software, hardware, publishing, music, television, food, sporting goods, advertising, restaurants, college programs, film, and cooperative nonprofit ventures.
We advise our clients regarding sound strategies when faced with infringements of their trademarks, as well as accusations of infringement. When disputes cannot be resolved, we are experienced at bringing and defending lawsuits under trademark infringement, unfair competition, false advertising and other related theories.
Our professionals always strive to offer creative business and legal solutions for fair, fast and cost-conscious dispute resolution, with to the goal of avoiding the expense and adverse publicity of litigation when clients so desire.
