Whether you need assistance registering your mark or taking action against an infringement, I offer the knowledgeable advice and advocacy you deserve.

Utah attorney assists with trademark registration

You can prove your ownership of a trademark by registering it with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). At the time of your application, you must file on a use-in-commerce or intent-to-use basis, meaning you are either currently using the mark or have a ready-market plan for its use. I am skilled at filing detailed applications with the USPTO that fully satisfy all of the complex requirements. I will conduct a thorough search of the database to determine if your proposed mark is already in use and assist you through each stage of the application process, including clearly describing your mark and the goods or services it represents.

Proven litigator defends your business from trademark infringement

The use by another company of your trademark can lead to lost profits and a tarnished reputation. When a company’s similar name, style, lettering, picture or other branding causes confusion, you may have a valid infringement claim. I will work to stop the unauthorized use of your trademark by obtaining an injunction against the infringer, and I may pursue damages for unfair competition when that is in your best interests.
