Our trademark, patent, and copyright consulting practice helps protecting clients’ intellectual property

In addition to filing and ministerial maintenance of trademark applications, we represent and advise clients in clearance, prosecution, enforcement, maintenance, licensing, counterfeiting, and domain dispute proceedings.


Trademarks today are among our clients’ most valuable intellectual property assets, not only for traditionally brand-driven consumer product companies, but increasingly among all of our technology and telecommunications clients.With the globalization and digital revolution, companies recognize the tangible value of corporate names, product names, logos, domain names, etc.In addition to offering our clients expert legal advice on trademark selection and registration, our firm provides a comprehensive trademark “monitoring and watch” service that allows us to uncover potential conflicts for newly filed trademark applications in the United States and Internationally. Our firm is committed to protecting a client’s brand identity through policing a client’s trademark for possible infringement, fighting the counterfeiting of trademarks, and defending against claims of infringement.We have wide-ranging knowledge in IP litigation and technological matters such as domain name registration, advertising on the Internet, cyber-squatting, and anti-spam legislation.

Trade Dress/Design Patents

The CommLaw Group helps protect our clients’ product trade dress and designs. We have represented companies in the prosecution of design patent applications in the U.S. and around the world and worked to enforce their protected designs and trade dress.

Our attorneys recognize the importance of design patent prosecution strategies and the enforcement of design patents, which we believe is essential to procuring strategic and strong, enforceable design patents.

Our practice is sensitive to the fact that in any industry in which a product’s launch is followed closely by imitations, timing is of the essence, and expedited processing is of the utmost importance. Indeed, we have successfully prosecuted applications on an expedited basis and had applications issued as early as within six months of filing.
