Securing And Enforcing Trademark Rights
Trademarks serve to identify and distinguish products from each other. In a crowded marketplace, they are critical to establishing and protecting your brand.
The intellectual property attorneys of Dawes Patent Law Group assist businesses with trademark prosecution, enforcement and portfolio management. Based in Southern California, we counsel clients statewide, nationwide and internationally.
Trademark Search And Prosecution
A trademark is anything that sets your product or services apart from the competition – a brand name, product line, catchphrase or logo. It can also apply to sounds (such as a jingle) or a distinctive product shape or packaging.
We conduct a search for registered trademarks – as well as unregistered products – that are substantially similar. The operating term of art is “likelihood of confusion.” If your trademark is deemed too close to a competitor’s branding, your application may be rejected by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) or challenged for infringement.
Our lawyers are well-versed in USPTO trademark prosecution protocols, from preparing the application through responding to objections raised by the trademark examiner.
