Our experienced IP attorneys conduct trademark searches and give opinions on whether a trademark can be registered. They advise about and prepare applications for the registration of trademarks with the United States Patent & Trademark Office. They also handle cancellation and opposition proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. If you are considering permitting another company or individual to use your trademark, they can assist with licensing and merchandising agreements. If a trademark has been infringed, our experienced lawyers will work to safeguard the trademark through cease-and-desist letters and, if needed, litigation.
