We know how frustrating it can be for clients to develop their brand or trademark only to have another business cause confusion in the marketplace by using a name or logo that is confusingly similar to your trademark. Our firm is experienced with trademark infringement matters and helps clients make sense out of the complexities of law to guide them through the litigation process or settle the matter. For instance, clients may be able to obtain a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction to immediately stop the infringing activity at the beginning of any lawsuit or declaratory judgment action. We work with our clients to analyze the issues to determine whether it is advisable for them to take this type of action or if another form of action would be more advisable.
We also know how frustrating it can be to be sued or receive a letter demanding that a client cease and desist from infringing a trademark when they have used the mark in fair use or the mark at issue (even if registered) is generic and cannot be protected. There are several exceptions and defenses to allegations of trademark infringement. We are here to help clients understand what action they can take to defend their business against these allegations or work to settle the matter in a manner that is most advantageous to them. Contact one of our experienced trademark attorneys to discuss the facts of your case.
