The public identifies your business, product or service through its distinctive branding, logo, design, slogan, wording or picture. These branding & trademarks immediately establish your business as unique and enhance its reputation. That’s why protecting your trademark is essential to preserving your business’s meticulously crafted image. Hamilton Law, PLC helps clients in the Kalamazoo area and throughout Michigan to register and protect branding & trademarks. Whether you need assistance registering your mark or taking action against an infringement, we offer the knowledgeable advice and advocacy you deserve
You can prove your ownership of a trademark by registering it with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). At the time of your application, you must file on a use-in-commerce or intent-to-use basis, meaning you are either currently using the mark or have a ready-market plan for its use. Our attorneys are skilled at filing detailed applications with the USPTO that fully satisfy all of the complex requirements. We conduct a thorough search of the database to determine if your proposed mark is already in use. We then assist you through each stage of the application process, including clearly describing your mark and the goods or services it represents.
The use by another company of your trademark can lead to lost profits and a tarnished reputation. When a company’s similar name, style, lettering, picture or other branding causes confusion, you may have a valid infringement claim. Our lawyers will work to stop the unauthorized use of your trademark by obtaining an injunction against the infringer, and we may pursue damages for unfair competition when that is in your best interests.
If your business wishes to register a trademark or act to stop infringement, Hamilton Law, PLC has the skill and experience to help. Call us at 269-488-8394 or contact us online to schedule a consultation at our Kalamazoo office.
