Trademark protection is essential to protect a brand name, logo, trade dress and trade packaging. ANAND LAW evaluates marks for registration with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), registers marks with the USPTO, and defends against any opposition or USPTO Office Action which may arise. We also draft and negotiate license agreements, and when necessary, litigate claims for trademark and trade dress infringement, trademark dilution, and unfair competition.
NO EXPANSION WITHOUT TM PROTECTION
If you have a concept for a brand, we can evaluate your proposed name, trade dress, logos, and other material for probable success in registration, and advise you as how to proceed prior to significant investment is put in.
If you have developed a following as a producer, artist, label, or have a distinctive design for a franchise, trademark registration is essential to expansion as there may be little to prevent others from simply copying your great idea without it.
The licensing of intellectual property is a business endeavor which must be done with great care and skill. ANAND LAW negotiates and drafts licensing agreements with creativity and precision. We take into account both the legal boundaries of a particular licensing arrangement as well as the business objectives of the client.
TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT AND TRADEMARK DILUTION

ANAND LAW can assist you in defending against cyber-infringers in both local and global venues.
