Protect what is yours. That’s the motto of the lawyers at Wasch Raines.
Intellectual property rights are an essential part of business value, especially where a name, brand or logo is closely associated with your services or products. Any unauthorized use of your intellectual property carries very real economic losses, and it is important to act quickly in the process of registering and protecting your valuable property.
We assist clients regularly in registering trademarks with the USPTO, as well as handling copyright registrations. Copyrighted material needs the same protections as trademarks to prevent sale and use of materials without your permission. These types of materials may include written works, music, digital reproductions and other artistic expressions.
Trademark infringement is an ongoing issue for many businesses, as new enterprises may attempt to duplicate your business identity, or may contend that you are using their trademark. In the event that there are similar trademarks in use, we will handle challenges to your filing and office actions. Have you noticed someone is infringing on your trademark, trade name or logo? Let our attorneys handle the dispute, and we will handle it with precision to get the best result.
Here are some of the intellectual property services we offer:
- Trademark Applications
- IP Assignment Agreements
- Copyright Registrations
- Nondisclosure Agreements
- Licensing Agreements
- Trademark Infringement
- Oppositions to Trademark Applications
- Domain Registrations
All of these services correspond to the protection, registration and use of trademarks and copyrights, which for some businesses may be one of their most valuable assets.
Wasch Raines: Experienced Intellectual Property Lawyers
The process of registering and protecting intellectual property involves federal laws and regulations that must be closely followed. We use our experience with the trademark and copyright registration offices to file your application and secure the protection that you need. Once the registration is complete, you also have the opportunity to license, assign or sell your copyrighted material or brand name, and we can assist you with those transactions.
Not everyone respects intellectual property registration, and if your trademark is being used by another business we can bring an action for infringement. Your business name and logo are an important investment and you cannot afford to allow unauthorized use in commerce for any period of time. Please contact us for a free consultation to discuss your intellectual property concerns.
