We provide our clients with a full range of intellectual property services relating to trademarks and brands. These services include, but are not limited to, analysis, licensing, litigation, monitoring, and prosecution.
Trademark Analysis and Opinions We meet with our clients to review all material for which trademark protection is sought. We then provide our clients with an in-depth analysis on the trademark protections available for the particular materials. This may include common law trademark protection already existing or registration with appropriate state trademark offices or the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("PTO"). Where trademark protection might not be available for certain materials, we explain to our clients the reasons as well as the likelihood of success in obtaining registered or protectable trademarks. In addition, we provide our clients with recommendations and methods to increase the protectability of the particular marks.
Trademark Licensing - We provide our clients with complete trademark licensing services. Where our clients seek to use a particular work subject to another's trademark, we gladly facilitate, where possible, the license to enable such use and negotiate the relevant terms relating to such a license. Similarly, where others seek to use the works of our clients, we facilitate and negotiate the profitable license of our clients' works to others. Where our clients wish to sell or purchase intellectual property assets, we negotiate these transactions on behalf of our clients.
Trademark Monitoring We monitor our clients' trademarks to protect against infringement. Where such infringement does occur, we actively and aggressively pursue those responsible (see IP Litigation).
Trademark Prosecution When trademark registration is sought at either or both the state and federal levels for particular materials, our experienced attorneys prepare and submit the appropriate applications working with the clients to ensure all requisite information and exhibits will be properly submitted.
