Exercising your right to prohibit unauthorized use of your trademark is essential for making use of your trademark. Or services cover:

  • Competitor monitoring services
  • Cease and Desist letters and takedowns

To fend off trademark infringers, we enforce your intellectual property assets in federal and state courts across the U.S., Europe, and Germany. Our enforcement services encompass:

  • Litigation Support and Representation
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Trademark Oppositions

Trademark oppositions are often used to revoke a trademark shortly before or after its registration, especially before the European Patent Office and the German Patent and Trademark Office. Our services include:

  • Searches for older rights globally or in selected jurisdictions,
  • Analysis of ‘absolute’ and ‘relative’ trademark registration hurdles,
  • Conducting written and oral opposition proceedings in English and German languages, both in offense and defense positions

Note that trademark oppositions are only possible for a short period of time before or after registration, depending on the jurisdiction. Additional measures to invalidate a trademark are available.

Trademark Appeals

Many decisions issued by Patent Offices can be appealed in front of dedicated appellate bodies. Our services include representation before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) of the USPTO, appeal bodies of the European Union Intellectual Property Organization (EUIPO), and the Board of Appeal of the German Federal Patent Court. Our services include:

  • Providing preliminary opinions to likelihood of success
  • Conducting written and oral proceedings in English and German languages

Trademark Commercialization

Once you have a registered trademark right, you are free to sell, market, license, and mortgage it. We help you monetizing your protected trademark right effectively with our comprehensive services, including:

  • Transfer of rights agreements
  • Licensing agreements
  • Trademark portfolio management
  • Strategic trademark counseling
