Help When Your Trademark Rights Are Violated
If you believe another company is infringing your trademark rights, we can help you devise a strategy to stop the harm to your brand. If litigation ensues, courts will consider a number of factors, including:
- How similar is the infringing mark?
- How similar are the companies’ respective goods or services?
- Do the companies offer their goods or services to their respective customers in the same manner, or through similar channels of trade?
Have there been instances of actual confusion? If your company is charged with infringing another company’s trademark, whether in a cease-and-desist letter or in a lawsuit, we can defend your rights and help you resolve the dispute.
In addition to our trademark litigation work, our lawyers can represent you in copyright infringement cases, trade dress conflicts, unfair or deceptive trade practices, theft of trade secrets/proprietary knowledge, unfair competition claims and other intellectual property matters.
