Home » Practice areas » Trademark and Trade Dress Law


Your trademarks carry your promises to consumers of the quality and consistency of your good or service. Creating a trademark that is inherently strong takes creativity and solid legal advice. Building a brand that has significant commercial strength is even harder, but can be done through impactful marketing and sales success. SNEED PLLCworks with our clients to investigate, clear and adopt trademarks that carry inherent strength and minimize risk of infringing others’ rights. We manage companies’ trademark portfolios in the U.S. and worldwide through the life-cycle of the brand.

At SNEED PLLC, we are a premier intellectual property (IP) firm in North Carolina. From our office in Davidson, we represent clients throughout the state and across the United States. If your company plans to expand internationally, we work with a network of firms outside of the United States to protect your rights abroad. We regularly represent clients in trademark disputes at the USPTO, and before the USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.


Based in Davidson, North Carolina, we serve a global clientele with trademark issues. Our firm represents clients in United States federal courts, as well as the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and other administrative agencies. Here are a few of the clients we have represented in the nine years since our firm’s founding:

  • A U.S.-based international footwear and apparel company before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office seeking to register as a trade dress an iconic footwear design

  • A North Carolina manufacturer of non-woven fabrics with product applications in the home cleaning industry, including by bringing and successfully resolving multiple trademark infringement lawsuits in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina to enforce a design mark critical to a key customer relationship

Our legal team can help you defend your trademarks in the courtroom or help you resolve your intellectual property dispute without resorting to litigation.

We are experienced trial attorneys with a wealth of experience in both federal and appellate courts.
