TRADEMARKS

Strategic Counseling

We work closely with our clients to ensure that their trademark rights are protected, including reviewing prospective trademarks for clearance and availability for use, and for registration in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Trademark Preparation And Prosecution

We file and prosecute trademark applications before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and participate in opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

Trademark Infringement And Validity Studies/Opinions

We study trademarks of others in view of our client’s rights and our client’s trademarks in view of the goods and services of others and, when necessary, provide opinions addressing infringement, validity and other relevant issues.  We also work with our clients to assist in policing the market for potential trademark infringement by others.

Licensing

We negotiate and prepare license agreements related to our client’s trademarks.

Litigation

We represent trademark owners or accused infringers in infringement litigation, including representation in view of ex parte seizure orders, preliminary injunctions, temporary restraining orders, and civil contempt proceedings before the Federal District Courts or state courts. We also work with our clients to settle disputes using various forms of alternative dispute resolution, such as arbitration and mediation.
