Trademark Law

We have extensive experience in all aspects of trademark law, from trademark registration in the United States and internationally, to representing trademark owners and applicants in opposition and cancellation proceedings in the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) “Trademark Trial and Appeal Board” (TTAB), to trademark litigation in the federal courts, to drafting contracts and other transactional documents relating to trademarks.

We provide domestic trademark registration services on a fixed fee basis.

Additional Services

International trademark registration

If you want to register your trademark internationally, please consult with us. We do not charge for initial consultations. Pricing depends upon the particular jurisdictions in which you desire to register, as well as other factors, including the order of registration. Over the years, we have developed certain approaches to keep costs down.

Domestic trademark “agent” services for international law firms

By law, firms outside the United States must have a domestic “agent” in the USPTO in order to provide registration services to their clients. For more than 30 years, we have been providing “agent” services to law firms located abroad. Currently, we provide such services to firms located throughout Europe, as well as Australia, New Zealand, United Arab Emirates, Korea, China, Japan, and the Russian Federation.

Services Include:

Prosecuting, defending and/or settling opposition proceedings and cancellation actions in the TTAB. We have represented both plaintiffs and defendants in these proceedings.

Trademark infringement litigation and pre-litigation services

We have represented and defended infringement and unfair competition actions in federal courts across the United States, representing plaintiffs and defendants. Pre-litigation services involve sending or responding to cease-and-desist letters, assisting our clients in gathering and assessing evidence of infringement (or lack thereof), and attempting to settle disputes before they get to court.

Drafting and negotiation of transactional documents

Services include trademark assignments and trademark licensing agreements.
