Trademark Prosecution

YOUR SOLUTION FOR BRAND MANAGEMENT AND PROTECTION

Trademark protection is the best way to protect the goodwill associated with your products or services that define your brand.  A federally registered trademark captures the association in a consumer’s mind between a product or service and the source of those goods or services.  Proper registration, usage, and enforcement of trademarks are critical to their value.  Our knowledgeable attorneys will assist you in securing protectable marks that both establish a legal avenue for enforcement and complement your brand.  Please contact us  for a consultation on brand protection, or to discuss enforcement of your existing trademarks.
