The Importance of Trademark Branding and Selection

We possess a profound understanding of branding and recognizes the crucial significance of strong and cohesive brand messaging. We believe that branding encompasses more than just trademarks and service marks; it extends to trade dress, product packaging, and product design. With this comprehensive approach, we collaborate closely with our clients to offer invaluable advice and assistance in building and protecting their brands.

Regardless of the size or industry, our commitment remains unwavering: to help our clients develop robust and distinctive brands that resonate with their target audiences.

The process of adopting a mark to identify a product, service, or even an entire business often involves considering numerous potential marks. At this crucial brainstorming stage, we work closely with clients to streamline the selection process. By offering economical and efficient preliminary trademark searches, we assist in identifying marks that may pose significant problems.

Moreover, we collaborate with clients to conduct thorough availability searches, delving into a broader array of potential issues. Through our analysis, we quantify the risks associated with each mark, enabling our clients to make well-informed decisions before using a mark or launching their product or service.

Our proactive approach during the trademark selection phase helps clients avoid or mitigate potential trademark conflicts and lays a strong foundation for their brand’s success.

Trademark Prosecution and Maintenance

We work with clients to develop domestic and international trademark filing strategies that make sense from the business and economic standpoint.

We have extensive experience in the United States Patent & Trademark Office (“USPTO”) and help clients navigate through the routine and substantive issues that come up while a trademark application is pending and ensure deadlines are met.
