Trademarks distinguish a company’s goods and services from those of its competitors, and allow business owners to develop goodwill in a brand and build customer loyalty. As a business grows, its brand becomes more valuable. Investing in and protecting a trademark at an early stage can provide a solid foundation for building the value of your brand. Whether you are considering a new trademark or have been using your trademark for twenty years, it is important to work with a lawyer who understands your business objectives and marketing plans.

Our clients span a wide range of industries, including craft beer, sporting goods, clothing, footwear, consumer products, mobile apps, medical devices, financial services, entertainment, construction services, professional services, education, and more.
