Members of our Intellectual Property practice provide clients with cost-effective and efficient representation to acquire and protect the valuable and intangible assets related to their brands, including trademarks, service marks and domain names.  We register, maintain, and secure rights to these assets for businesses throughout the United States as well as counsel clients on the ongoing -- and often complex -- process of safeguarding their use.

Our attorneys are knowledgeable on the full scope of issues related to brand protection and stay up-to-date on relevant legal and technological developments. Prior to registering a mark, we can advise clients on trademark clearance, non-infringement and availability issues.

Clients regularly seek counsel from our attorneys when competition increases in a way that requires legal advice relating to advertising and unfair competition disputes, or when enforcement, cease and desist or defensive actions may be required.  We have extensive experience resolving a wide range of disputes involving trademarks, service marks and domain names, including claims of counterfeiting and infringement.
