Trademark

A company's name, Web site domain, trademark and trade dress often comprise its most valuable assets. Obtaining a trademark registration and preventing its infringement are critical elements to the success of a business. Fowler White’s intellectual property attorneys assist clients in the strategic selection, registration, management and enforcement of these assets.

Our trademark practice offers the full spectrum of services:

  • Clearance and registration searches to determine availability
  • Preparation and filing of all registration and post-registration documents
  • Monitoring the use of trademarks by company employees, partners and vendors
  • Providing counsel on proper usage of trademarks in advertising and packaging
  • Preventing third-party misappropriation of trademarks by opposing registrations and seeking cancellations of existing registrations in the USPTO
  • Negotiating and documenting trademark licenses and assignments
  • Handling appeals from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office
  • Representing clients in litigation and other proceedings involving trademarks

With our increasingly global economy, companies often need to file trademarks in more than one country. Our attorneys bring specific knowledge of countries, legal systems and international markets to protect and further our clients’ interests. Fowler White provides cost-effective strategies for registering and enforcing trademarks worldwide. Our services also include:

  • Counsel regarding the WTO Trade Agreement on Trade-Related aspects of Intellectual Property Rights
