Intellectual Property

Copyright, Trade Dress and Trademark Registration

We assist clients with the identification, registration and protection of various forms of intellectual property.

Trademarks

A trademark is a designation used to identify and distinguish the goods of a person. Similarly, a service mark is any word or symbol used to identify services of a person and distinguish them from the services of others.

We work collaboratively with our clients in the mark selection process. Once marks have been identified for protection, we assist clients in the clearance, use, registration, and enforcement of trademarks, service marks, business names, domain names, trade dress, and packaging design in the United States.

Trademark laws worldwide are ever changing. We monitor the global trends in trademark law and keep our clients informed of developments that may affect their businesses. We also maintain a global network of foreign law firms for counseling, registrations and litigation.

Copyrights

Copyright is secured automatically when an “original work of authorship” is created. Although registration is not a condition of copyright protection, the copyright law provides several advantages to encourage copyright owners to make registration.

We assist clients in the identification and registration of their original works.
