Our Intellectual Property Services

Our dedicated intellectual property attorneys handle a variety of intellectual property services including:

Patent Prosecution

Serious inventors need to protect their products with a patent. This is one of the most iconic and important parts of IP law. Patents are issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and give an inventor intellectual property protection. That means the inventor can decide how, when, and who to market or sell the product.

Our patent law services include:

  • Conducting prior art searches and patentability opinions to determine the feasibility of obtaining a patent for your invention.

  • Preparing, filing, and prosecuting U.S. and International patent applications.

  • Providing IP counseling services on how to protect your invention, business processes, and technology.

  • Conducting IP due diligence as part of the merger and acquisition process to determine the value of an IP portfolio.

A patent attorney can help you determine whether your invention is eligible for patent protection and assist you in navigating the complex process of obtaining a patent.

Trademark Registration Process

Trademarks are used to protect brand names, logos, slogans, and other distinctive features that identify a particular product or service. Our trademark services include:

  • Conducting comprehensive searches to ensure that your desired mark is not already in use by someone else.

  • Preparing, filing, and prosecuting the trademark application with the USPTO for your proposed mark.

  • Maintaining your trademark registration to ensure it remains active and enforceable.

Our experienced trademark attorney can advise you on the best strategies for protecting your brand and assist you in obtaining federal registration for your trademarks.

Trademark Infringement Litigation

When your trademark is being infringed upon, it’s crucial to take immediate action to protect your rights and the integrity of your brand. An experienced trademark attorney can provide invaluable assistance in these instances. Initially, they can send a cease and desist letter to the infringing party, which serves as a formal demand to stop the unauthorized use of your trademark. This step often resolves the issue without needing to resort to litigation. Additionally, an attorney can negotiate settlements and licensing agreements if you are open to allowing the use of your trademark under specified conditions.

If the infringement continues despite these initial steps, your attorney can file a lawsuit on your behalf to enforce your rights. This legal action can seek injunctive relief to prevent further unauthorized use of your trademark, as well as monetary damages for the infringement that has already occurred. Litigation can also serve as a powerful deterrent to others who might consider infringing on your intellectual property. Having a skilled attorney by your side is crucial to navigating the complexities of trademark law and ensuring the fullest protection of your brand.

Paul and Paul is a great firm to work with, especially if you’re an entrepreneur. I’ve been working with the firm since 2013 and have two patents to show. What I love most about Paul and Paul is that they are a boutique firm. The level of attention I get from my attorney, Mr. Sluzas, is likely not found at a larger firm. My questions and concerns are typically answered within hours of my request, if not sooner. If you’re looking for a firm that is experienced, respected and responsive to your needs, I suggest Paul and Paul.
