Our clients own some of the most recognizable trademarks in the world. Our trademark selection, clearance, and registration services help clients establish domestic and international brand identity. And we help preserve this valuable asset through portfolio maintenance, dispute counseling, and litigation.


Clients trust us with their U.S. and international trademark portfolios, which often contain thousands of marks, because we are known for devising strong, enforceable brands.
