Acquiring, Protecting & Enforcing Your Trademarks
Trademark acquisition, protection and enforcement are all areas which can make or break your company. When you are pursuing the expansion and profits for which you have worked so hard, it is vital that you have the help of an intellectual property attorney in order to secure the rewards of your investment. A skilled intellectual property attorney can provide strategic advice regarding your trademarks and service marks, including logos, word marks, certification marks and trade dress.
When pursuing trademark rights, an important first step is an effective search and availability analysis. If obstacles are identified, competent intellectual property legal counsel can assist you to arrive at alternatives or negotiate licenses or other agreements that allow you use of certain marks.
Once established, trademarks demand stringent monitoring and defense against infringement. When needed, your legal representative can issue cease and desist letters, pursue legal action or negotiate license agreements. Alternately, if you are accused of infringing on another's trademark rights, your attorney can evaluate your options, such as a co-existence agreement, settlement agreement, or litigation, and help you pursue the best resolution.
