Trademark attorneys are your first line of defense against infringement.
Most people believe they don’t need a trademark attorney until they are faced with a lawsuit. But in truth, an attorney can help with so much more than just a suit. In some cases, spending a few minutes with a trademark attorney can take you a long way. Some ways a trademark attorney can come in handy include:
One of the most common misconceptions is that consulting a trademark attorney is prohibitively expensive and you should do whatever possible to avoid contacting one. In fact, our services are quite pocket-friendly. Having one of our lawyers review all your options before signing a contract can help you make informed decisions and significantly limit your mistakes.
Trademark problem diffusion
One of the great things about having us on your side is that if you get into a tricky situation where another party refuses to comply with a contract or a person or company threatens to sue you, a quick call from our attorneys to the other party’s attorneys can sometimes iron out the issue. We can also draft a letter on your behalf to stop a problem, and that simple action alone might keep you from going to court.
Understand your rights and obligations with the help of a trademark lawyer
The law is quite intricate, and while you might have a rough idea of all your options regarding trademarks, contracts and so on, an experienced attorney will help you understand all the important issues about each of the options. Often you can use this knowledge to your advantage to help you save money and protect your business. The more legal knowledge you have, the better your position to stand for yourself.
Avoid legal errors
While there are numerous legal forms you can fill out on your own, to be on the safe side, you should have a trademark attorney review all your legal documents. A single misspelling or even the tiniest of errors can render the entire document invalid. To avoid costly mistakes and the trouble of redoing legal documents, let us help you ensure it is all done perfectly and that you get the comprehensive legal protection you need.
The bottom line
Our trademark attorneys will help you detect whether there are similar trademarks that can potentially stop yours from getting registered. We will review and keenly scrutinize the description of your logo, so it doesn’t get rejected for registration because your logo looks like a clone of one already registered.
When it’s all said and done, the final decision on whether you should proceed with the registration of your trademark does not belong to the lawyer – the choice lies with you. The right trademark attorney will be there to guide you through the process.
