Trademarks

For any company, brand protection is an important facet of everyday business. While your support and service staff is responsible for creating a good image, trademark attorneys work to protect your company from entities that seek to misuse your brand. Trademark infringement lawyers act in matters concerning various aspects of trademark law, providing advice on design matters when required. During trademark registration, lawyers can help to ensure your designs do not infringe on existing marks. We represent clients from the administrative process of trademark filings from registration through completion including any office action or objections from third parties. We represent corporations and individuals in the intellectual property arena in all phases of the proceeding from registration to administrative proceedings to litigation, from obtaining and defeating initial restraining orders or TROs and preliminary injunctions through final appeals.
