Taking On The Full Range Of Trademark And Brand Protection Issues

Intellectual Property assets are vital for any business and, like other resources, these assets need to be effectively protected and efficiently managed. As such, the foremost objective of Friedman Schuman's Trademarks and Brand Protection practice is to help clients maximize and safeguard the value of their intellectual property.

The major areas of our practice include:

Trademarks & Brand Monitoring

  • Trademarks - Trademark registration and maintenance is a key element of our intellectual property practice. As part and parcel of our work, we look to successfully maximize our clients' current trademark portfolios and guide the selection and registration of new marks for products and services. We also conduct brand research and name clearance work.
  • Brand Monitoring - Effective brand management doesn't end with securing a registration. A registered trademark or logo must be maintained for potential abuse. We will watch the US Patent and Trademark Office for applications that may infringe your brand, and issue Cease & Desist letters to the responsible persons. We will monitor domain name registrations and the Internet for inappropriate use or reputational risk. We partner with our clients to build smart branding strategies in a cost-effective manner.
  • Licensing - Licensing intellectual property can be a major source of revenue for technology companies and other businesses. Our practice includes drafting and negotiating licensing agreements for our clients all with the goal of obtaining top revenues and maximum protection for them.
  • Litigation - When litigation is necessary, clients rely on our attorneys to provide the best possible representation. Our attorneys are widely respected for their legal skills, technical expertise, and trial capabilities and for their experience in successfully litigating intellectual property cases before administrative agencies, state courts, and federal courts.
