Trademark Law

  • Application, Trade Dress, Trade Secrets, Infringement, USPTO

WB Mills’ attorneys work closely with clients to develop strategies that protect and maximize the value of their brand or trademark including registration, litigation, licensing and representation before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. Trademarks include words, logos and slogans. We help clients file trademark applications and work with the USPTO to register their mark. Once businesses invest time and money into developing a trademark, businesses must protect that trademark through litigation or other proceeding to avoid the likelihood of confusion and loss of good will.

WB Mills' attorneys also defend clients against trademark infringement allegations. There are several defenses to allegations of trademark infringement and we work with clients to develop effective defensive litigation strategies. 

Additionally, WB Mills' attorneys help clients to address grievances before the USPTO Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB). Clients come to us for numerous reasons, including to defend their mark or defend against an unfair monopoly being granted to another party. We advise clients on whether to oppose a registration application, move to cancel a registered trademark, seek concurrent use or an assignment. Further, when clients are faced with defending against a Petition to Cancel or Opposition to Registration of a Trademark, we work with clients to develop effective defensive strategies.  Contact us to see how we can help you.
