Trademark Law


What's in a name? A great deal of investment, the recognition of which results in public goodwill for your company and its products. Registering your trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office can help maintain and enforce your company's right to the exclusive use of its brand names. The trademark attorneys at Fulwider Patton LLP are well aware of the value that names can hold, and we will work to register and protect your business' trademarks.

Trademarks, service marks, and company names can be valuable assets for any business. Our experienced trademark attorneys can help you register your marks and protect your good name.

Our intellectual property lawyers advise and guide clients through the trademark and service mark registration and enforcement process in a number of ways including:

  • Taking part in the selection of appropriate words, names, symbols, shapes, and colors to represent your business and products
  • Researching the availability of selected trademarks and service marks
  • Filing applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to obtain federal registration for your trademarks
  • Gaining far-reaching international protection by working with global intellectual property resources
  • Working with experienced international attorneys to obtain foreign trademark and service mark registrations
  • Using an automated docketing system to maintain the required fees, renewals, and declarations
  • Working with your company to establish guidelines for consistent use of all trademarks
