TRADEMARK LAW

Trademark LawTrademarks help to distinguish a company’s goods and services from those of other companies. They can take many forms, but most commonly consist of words, designs, and combinations of words and designs. Registering your trademark will provide increased protection and rights to prevent others from infringing or misusing the trademark.

Our trademarks team is experienced with preparing, filing, and prosecuting trademark applications for registration. We have managed worldwide trademark portfolios for a number of clients in the technology, cannabis, alcohol, gaming, fashion, and media/entertainment industries.

As well, it is becoming increasingly necessary for businesses to acquire insurance coverage for trademark and copyright infringement. Our insurance team can assist in reviewing and drafting your coverage to ensure the wording is clear and fulfills what the parties intended and that any exclusions are specific and effective and represents the commercial understanding of the insured and insurer. Our insurance litigators can represent you in court to protect your legal rights.  

We also offer a number of other services including preparing infringement opinions, initiating cancellation proceedings to expunge other trademark registrations, drafting trademark assignments and licensing agreements, and providing strategic advice with respect to managing trademark portfolios.
