One of the main areas that our Board Certified Intellectual Property Lawyers practice is in the use and application of trademark law. Generally speaking, a trademark is used in order to protect a business’s brand. It can consist of a phrase, word, design, logo, or any combination of the aforementioned. Think about some of the most common Trademarks out there. If I said, “Just Do It.” Would you know that was the slogan for Nike for many years? Without the protection of a trademark, others have the ability to use and capitalize on the hard work and goodwill that your brand has developed.
There are several options on filing for the use of a trademark. It is vital that you meet with an experienced and qualified Miami trademark lawyer to determine which avenue is the best option for your ultimate goals. It is possible that a business or individual can file with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for an intent-to-use application. If your trademark is not properly registered or applied for using the best means there is a chance that the mark may be cancelled during litigation.
Prior to any type of trademark or service mark being registered, it must be in use. In other words you are not able to file for a registered mark on an idea alone. Our Miami, Florida Trademark Attorneys are here to help you and your business protect the brand and goodwill that you have worked tirelessly to build.
