Trademarks

Regardless of the particular industry, ownership of a strong, recognizable brand is one of a company’s most valuable assets. The attorneys at Dann Dorfman Herrell and Skillman recognize this business reality and skillfully assist clients in securing, protecting, and enforcing their trademarks and service marks in the United States and abroad. Our team of attorneys and trademark specialists work closely with clients in a cost effective manner to maximize the value of this form of intellectual property.

Dann Dorfman Herrell and Skillman has decades of experience in preparing and prosecuting applications for trademark and service mark registrations and protecting registered marks. Through this experience, we provide strategic counseling to assist our clients in establishing robust, new brands; defending trademark assets in established product lines; and planning for future brands and growth of their trademark portfolio. We also advise on the registration and use of domain names to strengthen our client’s brand and assist in enforcement of trademark rights in domain name disputes.

We perform comprehensive searches to determine the availability of a mark for registration and provide our clients with clearance opinions. Upon successful adoption of the mark, should the mark be challenged, our trademark attorneys have experience in defending the marks in Opposition or Cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. We have also assisted clients in defending against infringers through litigation and other means of dispute resolution.
