Trademark Lawyer- When do you need one?
Certain famous trademarks represent some of the most valuable intellectual property assets in the commercial world. According to a 1993 study, the value of the Coca-Cola trademark was over $70 Billion! Microsoft, IBM, Ford, NBC, Maytag, Barnes & Noble, and Walmart, are well-known trademarks and valuable assets of their respective companies. And, there are trademark lawyers involved in protecting these trademarks every step of the way. Every company engaged in a public enterprise has a keen interest in acquiring and protecting effective trademarks that will clearly distinguish its goods and services from those of others.
A trademark lawyer can help develop and protect your corporate identity, brand identity, and related intellectual property. At the patent and trademark law firm of Maine Cernota & Rardin, the trademark lawyers counsel clients on the selection, availability, use, registration, and maintenance of trademarks, as well as related issues such as trademark monitoring, trademark licensing, infringement conflicts and negotiations, consent agreements, and customs recordation.
