Brand Protection 101
Brand Protection includes four steps: Searching, Authentication, Policing and Enforcement.
U.S. Registration Process
One of the most common ways to authenticate your brand is to register it with the USPTO.
Buying Or Selling A Business
Whether you are buying or selling a business, you need to consider the role intellectual property plays in the transaction.
You Received An Office Action/Initial Refusal
The USPTO thoroughly reviews 100% of the applications filed; estimates show that as many as 85% of the applications receive an initial refusal.
You Received A Demand Letter
Someone Else Is Using My Brand
You can’t believe your eyes! You typed your company name in a search engine and a link for another company came up first. What do you do?
We live in a small world. Your US rights in a brand have almost no bearing on your rights in Canada, the European Union, or other parts of the world. We can help you obtain rights in any country.
There are so many layers to Brand Protection.
Educating Our Community
Brand protection is so important, but unfamiliar to most people. We love discussing this area of the law with anyone to help them understand the significance of this topic.
Brand Health Check
What rights do you have in your brand?
- Do you know how to react if another company told you to stop using your company’s name or logo?
- Do you know what to do if a competitor began using a name similar to your company’s name?
You should be in control of your brand.

Helping Good People Do Good Things
“It is not logical to build a house on land you don’t own. Why would you build a business on a brand you don’t own?”
How Will We Help You?
We focus exclusively on brand protection law. Whether they realize it or not, every company faces risks with their brands. After years of representing large corporations, we have the expertise to guide smaller companies efficiently through these risks and turn their brands into assets.
Thank you, Kathy. Richard was super helpful and of great value to both me and Ralph in his review and notes on our contract. We appreciate you both.
Our experience has been great!
