Trademarks identify your brand to the public and must be protected against unauthorized use or infringement. If you do not already have a federal trademark registration, we will assist you in registering the Company’s trademark on the Principal Register of the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Prior to filing an application to register any marks on the Principal Register, we strongly recommend ordering a trademark search for each mark from a third-party provider, which generally encompasses a search of the USPTO records and applicable state, business and Web site directory databases, to determine whether there are any prior registrations that may preclude the registration of the Mark, or whether any third parties have registered or are using the same or similar marks in a way that could affect your right to use the Mark.

The firm has an active trademark and copyright registration and licensing practice. We regularly search proposed business names, and register them locally and nationally.

In addition, we regularly enforce our client’s trademark and intellectual property rights through trademark opposition and cancellation proceedings at the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (“TTAB”) and through federal court infringement actions including obtaining temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctive relief.
