Dilendorf Law Firm assists digital technology companies with trademark registration, clearance, maintenance and protection. To claim a trademark, the company must use it in commerce and does not have to register it, but federal (and international) registration provides significant advantages to trademark owners, including a legal presumption of ownership and the accompanying federal registration symbol ®.
Our IP attorneys cherish our clients’ goodwill, which often depends on well-chosen and protected trademarks. Trademarks are key to companies’ commercialization, as they link a company to its unique products or services in the marketplace. The more distinctive a trademark is inherently and among consumers, the stronger it is and the broader scope of protection it gets.
We offer a comprehensive analysis of trademarks’ validity and registrability; then our IP lawyers apply for and facilitate registration of the trademarks in International Classes of goods/services pertinent to the specific technology and allowing the broadest scope of protection.
While prior use of your trademark in commerce should do the magic, an application for U.S. trademark registration may be based on a good faith intention to use the mark in the future or a prior foreign registration.
