Trademark Services

Branding is the public face of every business. As such establishing and maintaining a strong brand is crucial to a business’s success. Choosing, and securing rights in, a trademark(s) is essential to successful branding. Securing the rights in a trademark(s) is one of the best preventative and proactive actions you can take to protect your brand in the long run, rather than taking a reactionary approach and waiting for issues to arise. It is extremely important to conduct your due diligence and check the availability of a mark before you commit your resources to adopt the mark and building your brand around the potential mark. Retaining an experienced trademark lawyer will help ensure that these steps are competently and quickly undertaken.

Trademark Services are broad and may include any or all of the following: 

  •     Search and Clearance, with an attorney-drafted memo of the results of the search.
  •     Trademark Registration Services
  •     Responses to office actions
  •     Trademark Assignment Recordation & Drafting
  •     Trademark Renewal Filing Services
  •     Monitoring & Enforcement

Protecting your brand is more than just filing for a trademark. One must be vigilant in protecting their mark in order to maintain their rights. This includes monitoring for improper use of the trademark to initiating campaigns challenging pending trademark applications through opposition proceedings. Opposition proceedings are adversarial proceedings that take place before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (a department of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, a federal government administrative agency). Protecting your brand while navigating opposition campaigns requires customized strategies to preserve the applicant’s rights while also avoiding lengthy litigation and fees.

A work of art, your personal expression, your literary masterpiece, or even a fully compiled code, any “original work of authorship,” so long as the work possesses even a minimal degree of creativity, it is deserving of copyright protection once in a tangible medium. At the completion of any such work, its author already enjoys copyright protection. That protection, however, is going to leave the author open to liability as it does not hold the same value that it could without a copyright registration obtained from the Copyright Office. A formal registration allows the copyright holder to enforce the copyright in court. Without that threat of potential enforcement, the copyright holder risks having their copyright infringed upon.

Fortunately, the copyright registration process is simple, inexpensive, and relatively quick. Likely, a copyright registration certificate will arrive within a few months of submitting the application, sooner if you choose to pay an additional fee for expedited processing. While note necessary, making use of an experienced copyright lawyer to handle this process for you will guarantee the process is being undertaken properly.
