Defining the “IT” when it comes to Trademarks means understanding the value of our client’s brand and where it fits in the overall competitive landscape, while identifying creative ways to protect or distinguish it. Our trademark attorneys have decades of experience advising clients ranging from multinational corporations to mid-market companies, universities, medical centers and innovative start-ups. We also understand that good value and cost predictability are an important part of any trademark strategy, be it drafting a single trademark application or managing large national and international trademark portfolios. We are adept at delivering innovative trademark services using billing models geared toward each client’s specific needs, including flat fee and portfolio pricing.
Our domestic trademark practice involves helping our clients to develop comprehensive yet cost effective strategies for protecting the goods and services under their marks. We also have extensive experience in helping clients develop a corporate identity, evaluate the strength and weaknesses of potential marks and weigh the potential risks and benefits of proceeding with a particular mark or family of marks. Identifying appropriate lists of goods and services also is an important part of our trademark practice helping clients to craft an overall protection strategy that accomplishes their business objectives without breaking the bank.
