Our expertise in trademarks – unique combinations of letters, numbers, shapes, sounds, scent, taste or design used to identify a company’s products or services – extends across a vast range of industries, and our reputation for highly effective counsel and superior advice and service make us a globally recognized leader in trademark law.
Unmatched expertise in trademarks

We provide a full range of trademark services, from complete portfolio management to brand clearance and sophisticated trademark protection strategies, from efficient trademark prosecution and registration to expertise in oppositions and cancellation proceedings, from vast depth in domain name protection and customs enforcement to award-winning trial and appellate advocacy.
