Trademark practice

Brooks Kushman is among the top trademark firms in the United States and we protect some of the world’s most recognisable brands. We understand that trademarks are among a company’s most valuable assets and are critical to building consumer confidence.

Our trademark attorneys are experts in managing all facets of domestic and international trademark portfolios, including:

  • strategic counselling;
  • availability and clearance assessments;
  • filing strategies;
  • registration, maintenance and renewal;
  • opposition and cancellation actions;
  • enforcement and litigation;
  • licensing and sponsorship agreements;
  • due diligence for mergers and acquisitions;
  • domain name strategy and recovery;
  • internet enforcement;
  • anti-counterfeiting enforcement; and
  • customs and border protection enforcement.

Clients rely on our firm to protect corporate names, trademarks, service marks, logos and slogans, and to help them build a strong reputation and brand in the marketplace.

Strengthening our trademark experience, our attorneys have successfully defended and enforced trademark, copyright and unfair competition actions in courts across the United States, and have successfully argued appeals in state and federal courts nationwide, as well as tribunals outside the United States.
