Trademarks

Trademarks are essential to establishing and maintaining a company’s brand in the marketplace. We know our clients make significant investments in their trademarks and we work to ensure they are protected. This includes providing advice before clients launch new products and services to ensure trademarks are available for use.

We will conduct preliminary searches to obtain clearance and registration, and manage the entire process from filing onwards. We also provide guidance on filing for international trademark protection, which is becoming more and more crucial in our global economy. Clients also look to us for advice regarding the validity of their trademarks and possible infringement issues.

Have a question for one of our trademark professionals? Check out our list below to see which members of our team can help you get started.
