Trademark

We offer clients creative strategies for defending against and prosecuting trademark and trade dress infringement actions. We regularly draw upon our extensive knowledge of both federal and state laws governing this field to provide comprehensive advice and litigation assistance to clients. We regularly counsel our clients on Lanham Act and branding issues, and also have extensive experience with trademark problems relating to the use and/or registration of domain names on the Internet and the federal Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act. 

We also counsel clients on the selection of brands and protection and registration of corresponding trademarks, whether at the state, federal or international level. We also represent clients in connection with contested registrations in the United States Patent and Trademark Office (PTO). Our clients range from smaller, dynamic players in the emerging growth, entertainment and wine industries to publicly traded, well-known major corporate names in the high-tech community, wineries and beverage companies and professional sports franchises.
