Trademark & Copyrights

We assist companies with trademark filing, prosecution, and protection to aid our clients in building value through the development and protection of brand identity. SLG has counseled clients in the successful registration of numerous trademarks. Our attorneys communicate with clients frequently throughout the registration process so that they know what to expect and when.

We are experienced in all stages of this process, including: performing preliminary and comprehensive searches of proposed trademarks, preparing and prosecuting applications to register trademarks, counseling on the proper use of trademarks, and developing and implementing trademark enforcement strategies, including through use of trademark watch services, opposition and cancellation proceedings, cease and desist letters.

Our lawyers have also advised clients on a number of copyright issues relating to registration and ownership, fair use, infringement and protection. We frequently counsel clients on when copyright protection is available, the type of protection afforded, and whether or not a registration is desirable.  If a registration is desirable, we can also assist clients in the registration process.

At SLG, we understand that predictability is important to our clients, both in regard to cost and timing. At the beginning stages of your trademark or copyright matter, we are able to provide an accurate cost estimate –  many times in the form of a flat-fee arrangement – and a timeline, so you are able to focus your time and energy on the business of running your business.
