Trademark and Trade Dress
The trademark attorneys of Edell, Shapiro & Finnan assist companies in managing national and international trademark portfolios. A significant portion of our trademark practice is devoted to securing and enforcing registrations for marks in the United States and abroad.
Our trademark attorneys counsel clients during mark development, assisting clients in the selection of a mark or logo. We advise clients on how to select protectable marks, and conduct clearance searches to determine the potential availability of marks for use and registration. Our goal is to help clients avoid potentially costly conflicts or enforcement issues that might arise with a selected mark.
Our trademark attorneys further assist clients in other trademark matters, such as preparing and negotiating trademark licenses, resolving registration disputes, resolving internet domain name disputes, participating in trademark opposition and cancellation actions before the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, enforcing and defending trademark rights; and addressing trade dress protection issues.
In addition, we have established relationships with trademark counsel and agents outside the United States who are ready to assist us with securing and enforcing trademark rights abroad. We work with a network of associates who share our vision of providing high quality legal services at a competitive price.
