TRADEMARK AND COPYRIGHT MATTERS

Trademarks

A trademark helps your business protect its unique identity for goods and services, and helps your company distinguish itself from its competitors. Jew & Associates offers clients expert legal advice in protecting existing marks, and registering marks for new products and services. Attorney Leon E. Jew has experience prosecuting trademarks before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and can assist you with the following areas:

Trademark Applications and Prosecution before the USPTO

Your business has worked hard to preserve its own unique identity and distinguish goods from others in your industry. Federal trademark registration is the best way to provide ‘notice’ to others across the country, and help protect the identity of your business’s goods and services. At Jew & Associates, we can help you to prepare and file trademark registrations with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and will represent you in response to USPTO’s office actions on your trademark registrations. Obtaining a trademark registration requires specialized knowledge of the law. At Jew & Associates our knowledgeable attorneys are licensed to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and can help explain the process to you every step of the way.

Trademark Infringement and Non-infringement Opinions

At Jew & Associates, our attorneys assist small businesses and other clients with trademark infringement and non-infringement opinions. We can assist trademark registrants in situations where the trademark registrant knows that someone is using a similar mark and may potentially be infringing on that mark. We can also assist companies who can demonstrate long-standing ‘actual use’ in stopping infringing activities. We also assist clients who have received cease and desist letters from trademark registrants alleging infringement. We will help you evaluate the circumstances, review the uses and the likelihood of confusion, assess your uses in relation to the registered marks, examine geographic scope and establish date of actual use, and provide you with guidance on next steps, as well as a formal written opinion.

Trademark Litigation

Whether you have competitors who are misusing your trademarks, causing ‘likelihood of confusion’ with your marks, or you have been accused by others of trademark infringement, Jew & Associates can help you protect your intellectual property rights in court. Our attorneys are experienced in intellectual property litigation, and will help you assert your marks or defend your company from infringement claims against it.
