Attorneys in our Intellectual Property group counsel clients in acquiring and protecting the trademarks, copyrights, patents and trade secrets that can be a business’s most valuable assets and in avoiding and defending against infringement charges that can create roadblocks to doing business. As advisors to local, national and international businesses, our broad experience ranges from traditional brick-and-mortar enterprises to the digital world, including software and the Internet.

Rights Development and Acquisition
Cole Schotz lawyers assist clients in selecting the trademarks, service marks and trade names that will represent their brands and the valuable goodwill they have developed along with their products and services. We advise clients on the legal strengths and weaknesses of their mark selections, conduct clearance searches for conflicting marks in use by others and creatively counsel clients on their options and alternatives. Once a mark or trade name is selected, our attorneys prosecute registration applications and maintain portfolios of marks and trade names to ensure our clients’ rights remain protected, deter potential infringement and enhance the value of our clients’ goodwill and name recognition.
