A trademark is an important type of intellectual property that identifies products or services from a particular source and distinguishes them from any other individual or business entity. This means that a trademark can come in the form of a word, phrase, symbol, design, or a combination of these expressions that uniquely identify your goods or services.

There are a lot of examples of how trademarks are used and appear at all levels of society. This comes from simple recognizable brand names to recognizable catch phrases used by major corporations.

Trademarks can be found in a variety of forms such as logos, brand-specific color schemes, slogans, and even fictional characters.
The process for dealing with trademark infringement typically starts with an experienced attorney issuing a cease-and-desist letter or filing an injunction that specifically directs the infringer to immediately stop using the protected material.

Trade Secrets

Trade secret law is designed to protect a wide range of valuable information. This includes proprietary information which might not be eligible for protection under other forms of intellectual property protection such as patent or copyright law.

Trade secrets exist in many forms, and the legal protections associated with them can be complex. Our team at Powell, Kugelman & Postell can put the proper agreements in place to protect your trade secret.

Licenses and Agreements

An intellectual property license agreement is a legal document wherein one party is specifically allowed to use another party’s intellectual property. This can include patents, the use of a trademark, the use of copyrighted material, and even access to specific trade secrets.

Licensing agreements require specific language to ensure that the intellectual property is used correctly, as well as ensuring that any proprietary information is not improperly disseminated to the general public.

Powell, Kugelman & Postell understands the complexities of intellectual property law and uses our immense experience to protect our clients’ intellectual property rights. If an infringement occurs, or a party violates a licensing agreement, our team of expert litigators will work swiftly to represent you in the appropriate course of action.
