Experience matters. With over 5,000 Trademark applications filed, our attorneys make sure the trademark application is submitted properly from the outset, thereby reducing the number of actions issued by the USPTO and expediting the application's time to allowance
With years of experience, we simulate the trademark Examining Attorney's thought process in brainstorming several variations for each mark, running several searches at no additional cost as Examiners will first consider existing marks that are identical. From there, searches are performed for trademarks that are similar in appearance, sound and commercial connotation, including our expert legal analysis and client consultation with every search. This often includes strategic business advice and recommendations prior to filing the trademark application.
Our firm's vast experience in trademark filing goes beyond words - William Goldman has been recognized as a "Top-10" USPTO filer, representing clients in all 50 states and internationally. During his career, Mr. Goldman has filed over 5,000 trademark applications, including those currently pending and registered for clients.
Trademark Litigation and Amazon take-down Letters
Once the mark has been approved for registration, we handle maintenance filings and renewals upon request. Ultimately, policing of trademark infringement and enforcement of rights is the trademark owner's responsibility. Upon detection of a target, we'll write powerful cease and desist letters on the owner's behalf, following up with legal action if necessary or negotiating favorable settlement, including potentially-lucrative licensing deals. We'll also file and defend inter partes TTAB disputes, namely, Opposition and Cancellation proceedings. Finally, we'll file and defend against Amazon seller claims as an area of TM practice that has been steadily increasing in importance.
