Trademark Law

The right to use a distinctive design, logo, or name is very important to a business.  Trademarks help customers associate a company with the products it makes and the services it provides.  Our lawyers advise and assist clients in connection with the selection of new trademarks, which helps them avoid inadvertent infringement of another party's protected trademarks.  We file and prosecute applications for trademark registration with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, including handling oppositions to registration, assignments, renewals, and appeals, in order to provide our clients with the maximum protection available under the law.  We also defend our clients' trademarks vigorously against infringement by others.

Our Business and Finance lawyers provide services in the following areas, among others:
