Wendy B. Mills opened this firm to provide entrepreneurs, artists and small to mid-sized businesses the kind of attention and care that mostly large businesses obtain. Our experience allows us to provide strong but caring representation for our clients in the Courts and before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB).
Our primary office is located in Dallas and just prior to the COVID pandemic, we opened a satellite office in Austin, Texas.

Arbitration and Mediation
Our firm also represents clients in arbitration proceedings in the event that the parties have executed an enforceable arbitration agreement. We have also assisted clients to compel arbitration when the opposing party has executed an arbitration agreement but has refused to arbitrate the dispute. Moreover, we represent clients in mediation as part of litigation.
The firm’s philosophy toward litigation is to be tough on behalf of its clients in any particular dispute, while refusing to abandon professionalism and fairness. WB Mills, PLLC’s attorneys advise clients not only on how to protect their trademark, copyright and proprietary rights through litigation and before the USPTO and TTAB, but also suggest strategies to protect and maximize the value of their trademarks, copyrights and proprietary rights. For instance, many clients don’t realize that registration is only the first step in protecting their trademark and copyright rights. Once their mark or work is registered, they must also diligently continue to protect such rights through proper licensing and due diligence in monitoring the mark and/or copyright to ensure that if any infringement occurs, action will be taken in a timely and effective manner.
