What is a Trademark?

Trademarks are symbols or words used to designate the source of products or services. Owners of Trademarks are protected based on the government’s interest in fostering a fair market. Fairness in trademark law does not mean lack of competition, on the contrary trademark law is designed to foster competition by making sure that consumers can clearly distinguish each product or service.

We can help you navigating IP Law!

The protection of IP creates new jobs, strengthens industries and enhances the quality of life. As an inventor, creator or entrepreneur, ensuring that you maintain ownership and rights to your intellectual property is crucial in today’s high-tech world.
