Trademark Protection and Counseling

Secure Your Brand With Strong Trademark Protection

A trademark or “brand name” identifies and distinguishes the source of a product or service of one party from those of others. Trademarks are typically words (Google or Apple), letters (IBM or HBO), or designs (the golden arches). However, the shape or configuration of products or packaging may be trademarks if they are used to signify the source of a product or service. For example, the shape of a Coke bottle, the color pink for insulation, and even the sound of the NBC chime are protected as trademarks.

A trademark can become a very valuable asset of your business because it helps to identify you and separate you from your competitors, and your customers may continue to buy from you and buy new products from you based purely on the strength of your mark. Our attorneys can assist you in securing trademark protection for your brand.
