Trademarks are a key component in brand recognition and product marketing. Disputes regarding prior use, infringement, and different markets can compromise marketing strategies and interfere with how a company positions itself in the marketplace. In order to minimize confusion and maintain trademark rights, trademarks are registered and enforced both internationally and domestically through a database. By comparing how a trademark is designed, when it was registered, and the goods it was meant to cover, it’s possible to determine if an unregistered trademark infringes upon it.

Domestic Registration of Trademarks
States have specific requirements for trademark registration. Domestic trademark infringement often occurs when an incomplete trademark review or search fails to uncover an existing trademark in another state. Litigation may be necessary when disputes arise regarding the markets involved, allegations claiming trademark abandonment, or similarity in design. Adding to these difficulties is the Lanham Act and how certain trademark rights are construed under it. Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience needed to sort through what can be complicated, technical issues and ensure your trademark rights are enforced.
