Intellectual Property

TLD Law boasts an extensive history in counseling clients on intellectual property matters including trademarks, service marks, copyrights, trade secrets, and trade dress issues. Protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights are essential elements to any business portfolio. Our IP attorneys adroitly evaluate a client’s needs and wishes so that the client can make informed decisions. TLD Law’s IP practice is comprised of two separate but often related practice areas: IP Transactions and IP Litigation.

IP Transactions

TLD Law assists business and individuals in identifying, selecting, obtaining, and developing intellectual property rights. We can assist in obtaining trademark and copyright registrations as well as provide transactional services to protect valuable IP assets. We also regularly counsel clients on other transactional issues such as IP valuation for business transfers, purchases and sales, assignments, and other due diligence matters. Our goal at TLD is to allow our clients to make informed decisions about their intellectual property assets and to maximize the value of their IP portfolios.

Clients are often unaware of that IP rights require regular maintenance and policing to ensure their validity and strength. The USPTO, for example, requires periodic filings in order to maintain a federal trademark registration. As part of our full-service mentality, TLD Law evaluates clients’ intellectual property assets to make sure those property rights remain strong.

IP Litigation

Enforcing and protecting IP rights are essential duties for any rights holder. At TLD Law, we don’t view IP rights through a myopic lens. Instead, we evaluate them as part of an overall assessment of a business portfolio. That way, clients are able to understand the broad and unique effects that IP litigation will have on their business. We provide discerning counsel on enforcement and defense actions in state and federal courts as well as the Trademark Trials and Appeals Board (TTAB). IP litigation doesn’t begin with the filing of a complaint or petition, it starts with an analysis of potential claims or defenses before litigation commences. At TLD Law, we believe a cogent game plan is necessary to successful litigation.
