Trademark Law
Trademark Law

Trademarks are source identifiers.  A trademark can be a word, phrase, symbol, design, or some combination thereof that identifies the source of goods and services, distinguishing that source from others in the marketplace.

Building, maintaining, and protecting a strong brand identity is extremely important for business success.  Proper use and enforcement of trademarks is key to establishing a strong brand, and a company’s name and/or logo provides a first impression to consumers.  Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of the trademark laws and trademark examining procedures, making us well-qualified to advise clients regarding the use and protection of trademarks.

We are experienced in preparing applications for federal, state, and/or foreign trademark registration.  Once on file, we use our expertise to negotiate with trademark examiners in support of trademark registration to achieve the best results for our clients.

Our attorneys also provide thorough trademark availability searches and opinions.  We routinely represent our clients’ interests in opposition and cancellation proceedings in the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB).  Additionally, we prepare trademark-related agreements, including licensing agreements, assignments, and coexistence agreements.
