Trademark Practice

Alleman Hall & Tuttle LLP assists clients in building robust trademark portfolios, and protecting their trademark rights from encroachment by third parties. We advise clients considering adopting new brands to inform them of the potential risks posed by third party trademarks and the likelihood of obtaining protectable trademark registrations for these new brands in the U.S. and abroad. We help fortify our clients’ rights in existing brands by expanding their trademark registrations to cover additional countries and additional goods and services, where appropriate. We also defend existing trademark portfolios by monitoring third party trademark activity to identify applications, registrations, and actual use in commerce of third party marks that potentially encroach upon our client’s rights, and filing trademark oppositions and cancellation proceedings in the U.S. and abroad where necessary. The firm also assists clients with inbound and outbound trademark license agreements, and helps them negotiate trademark disputes with third parties. All of the firms attorneys are active in the firm’s trademark practice.
