Making or breaking marketing success
Your trademark is your company's unique face to the world and can add value to your products and services. Sheldon Mak & Anderson provides complete trademark services including:
- Searching and selection
- Prosecution and maintenance
- Litigation for infringement, dilution, and unfair competition claims
- Due diligence
Protecting you and your product
Developing a trademark can be filled with peril. Businesses can select descriptive words, symbols or expressions which are, in reality, in the public domain. A mark available in one country may be unavailable¡Xor even offensive¡Xin others. Or, faulty due diligence can fail to uncover a mark's current use by others. The result: a patent infringement suit.
To avoid infringement suits, we can screen your proposed trademarks nationally and internationally within hours.
Protection today and tomorrow
We routinely handle all trademark proceedings before state and federal trademark offices and, with the assistance of our network of overseas associates, in all international trademark offices. Once your mark is registered, we ensure that all required affidavits of use and renewal fees are always up to date.
We fight for your mark
We assist you in policing your trademark rights. We have prevented the importation of articles which infringe our clients' trademarks. We have a solid history of obtaining seizure orders, temporary restraining orders, injunctions and favorable judgments for our clients. We litigate both large and small trademark-related cases before federal and state courts, the Patent Trade Office, the International Trade Commission and other tribunals.
