Trademark Monitoring

 

Beyond the initial and indeed preliminary step of registering your trademark, it is imperative that you continue to monitor the strength and impregnability of your trademark vis-a-vis competitors.  Indeed, it is incumbent on the trademark holder to monitor and enforce his/her trademark rights and in order to do so, the trademark owner must first be aware of infringing marks. Our trademark monitoring services consist of monitoring the use of identical and indeed even similar marks and appraising you of these potentially infringing marks. Our top trademark lawyers will do the necessary research to keep track of your intellectual property and if necessary, provide you with the information and tools to dispute a problematic trademark.
