Protecting your brand identity is important, and our experienced trademark attorneys are able to guide individuals and businesses through the entire trademark process.  This includes:

  • Evaluating whether your mark may be registered as a trademark
  • Preparing the documentation necessary to apply for trademarks
  • Filing applications with the USPTO
  • Working with examiners at the USPTO to obtain approval of your application
  • Representing you in proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB)
  • Maintaining your trademark
  • Drafting agreements to license your trademark
  • Protecting your trademark from infringement and validity challenges

 We are also able to assist businesses and individuals with branding strategies by searching for registered trademarks before any application is filed.  In addition, we offer trademark watch services to monitor filings and publications of marks that may conflict with your registered trademarks.

 With their extensive federal litigation experience, the trademark and litigation attorneys at Sanders • Pianowski, LLP are also able to litigate trademark infringement claims for both trademark owners and accused infringers in state and federal court.  And, with experience in trademark proceedings before the TTAB, we are able to represent clients in appeals from denials of applications for registration by examining attorneys, as well as in inter partes opposition and cancellation proceedings.
