Knowledgeable business lawyers and experienced litigators, our Trademark and Copyright attorneys provide a broad range of services to our diverse clients—from enforcing and defending the trademarks of established companies, to helping start-ups select and clear their names and product designations, to negotiating distribution and licensing agreements.
Our trademark lawyers will help you make the most of your trademarks. We are skilled at helping search for an available trademark, analyzing and investigating potentially conflicting marks, and preparing and filing applications for state and federal trademark registration.
Further, we will work with you to develop and maintain the right portfolio of trademarks for your products and services and aid in your marketing, distribution and licensing strategies—both domestically and worldwide, regularly accessing a global network of law firms, many of whom rely upon Wiggin and Dana to provide local counsel to their worldwide clients.
We also represent clients in disputes involving claims of trademark infringement and dilution in the courts and before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Trademark Trial and Appeal Board in registration opposition and cancellation proceedings, and in litigation involving our clients' trademarks.
Our copyright lawyers represent rights holders and licensees in many industries and endeavors, advising them on the protection, enforcement, and commercial exploitation of their art, literary, photo, video, digital, web, and artifact properties. We provide clients with a wide range of copyright services, including filing copyright registration applications and counseling clients on works made for hire, the fair use of copyrighted works, and the protection and licensing of all types of copyrighted works, such as software, databases, art, literary and visual works, websites, and new media products.
