Protecting Your Trademarks with Our Business and Trademark Attorneys
You have worked hard to build your business, so it makes sense to protect it. This should include protecting your company’s identity, brands, and any other assets. Our team at Buche & Associates, P.C. can help you learn where your trademark rights exists, what limitations are present, and how to aggressively protect your company through carefully crafted trademark strategies.
Are you ready to trademark your company’s name or take steps to protect your business’s branding? If so, our team at Buche & Associates, P.C. can help you to achieve these goals. This includes helping you to identify trademarkable assets, and select trademarking strategies most likely to secure strong registrations. We can help you select and search names that are less likely to cause conflicts with other businesses. We can also help you to register your trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, giving you the legal protection you need. If you need international registration of your trademark, we can also help you in that area.
Trademarks are often cornerstones of building solid businesses. Trademark portfolios can enhance the value of your business and increase the likelihood of stopping would be competitors from trading on your reputation. Registered trademarks are useful for stopping counterfeiting, stopping infringing imports, and stopping use of your brands for online shopping and across sales platforms such as Amazon®, eBay®, Etsty®, etc. If you have a registered trademark, it will make it easier to remove cyber squatters from URLs and other online search engines where they might try to edge in on your market share.
Unlike many of the popular discount “filing services” that take your money and file a trademark application that is likely to get rejected (with little thought of the competitive landscape), our attorneys take the time to look at developing real trademark strategies. Because we are experienced trademark attorneys, we know in advance many of the pitfalls to registration, and can avoid them. If you care about your brands, you should know that taking the cheapest route can often cost you more later. You may get exactly what you pay for. For this reason, we do not endeavor to compete with those sub-par filing services with little to no attorney oversight. We know full well, from fixing mistakes of some of those services, the consequences that poor trademark selection strategies can have in terms of expense and on enforcement efforts later. Our firm focuses instead on providing real trademark legal services, providing a true value to our clients, and for reasonable prices.

We provide you with all of the support you need including in the following areas:
Trademark Searches and Opinions
If your business would like to reduce the likelihood of a trademark infringement dispute with another company, it is usually advisable to perform trademark searches as part of the registration process. We have trademark searches that are geared for registration, and searches designed to avoid infringement issues down the line. We provide comprehensive opinions, if requested, about the likelihoods of achieving registrations, having conflicts, and how to best attempt to avoid conflicts.
Trademark Infringement Opinions
If there is a concern for a trademark infringement, we can help advise you about the likelihood of a problem, and provide the follow up advice of how to negotiate the issues that arise. We do this with trademark infringement opinions. If you are considering legal options concerning your company’s name or your business’s products, our team can handle the research for you, and provide you advice based on our experience. In this area, our goal is to help you minimize risks that you may infringe upon the rights of another party, or alternately to assess how strong a case you may have against others who are using your trademarks or brands. In other instances, we can help you make intelligent choices on how to manage a matter where trademark infringement may have occurred and damages from the event need to be controlled. We are equally well versed representing plaintiffs and defendants. Having represented all sides, this helps us anticipate the issues you may have and how they will be viewed by your adversary.
Trademark Infringement Watches
It is important for companies to monitor the use of their trademarks by others. Failure to do so can cause financial harm and erode the strength of your brands. Unchecked infringements can actually destroy a brand and the value of those brands to identify your company. We can help you prevent this situation.
