Clients trust us with their U.S. and global trademark portfolios, which often contain thousands of marks, as we are known for devising strong, enforceable brands. When our clients’ brands are threatened we handle infringement, dilution, unfair competition, and other trademark disputes in all legal forums. We also see to the removal of infringements on social media, websites, and online retailers such as Amazon.
Trademark registrations are now more important than ever given that trademark registration rights are required to remove infringements on social media, online retail sites, and domains, and scam sites. We understand how new technologies affect brand strategies, including social media, contextual advertising, and affiliate network advertising.
Our team works with iconic brands such as ADWEEK®, WIFFLE®, ROCKPORT®, DUNHAM®, and the ABBEY THEATRE®, along with numerous well-known brands including THE BLOOD TYPE DIET®, SELECTIVE INSURANCE®, LYMAN®, BUDDERFLY®, TANGOE® and PERRICONE MD®. Other clients have included VERSACE®, BILLBOARD®, BETRAM®, and SANI-HANDS®. We have also helped companies such as The Lifetime Value Co.® (previously BEEN VERIFIED®) and TOMMIE COPPER® to grow from startups to established market players.
