Types of trademark cases we handle
Garcia & Gurney, ALC has built a reputation for providing clients with knowledgeable and dependable legal advice for a broad range of intellectual property issues. Our lawyers frequently help clients with the following types of trademark matters:
- Clearances: Before creating and establishing a trademark, it is essential that you conduct a clearance search. A properly conducted clearance search can ensure that the mark you want to use has not already been chosen by another person or party.
- Opinion letters: After our lawyers perform a clearance search of the mark you are considering, we can provide you with an opinion letter detailing what we have uncovered. Within this letter, we can include a full analysis on the mark, the legal risks you may face by using the mark, and the likelihood that your application to register the mark will be successful.
- Registration: Our firm has experience assisting clients in registering trademarks under state and federal law. Registering your trademark provides you protection and deters other parties from using your mark.
- Licensing infringement: At Garcia & Gurney, ALC, we realize that a trademark dispute can put your business at risk. If your trademark is infringed upon, our attorneys can review your case and help you send an infringement threat letter.
