A trademark or service mark is a word, name, symbol, slogan, or any combination, used or intended to be used to identify and distinguish the goods/services of one entity from those of another, and to indicate the source of the goods/services. Trademark rights can be established by use and/or trademark registration after use has been established. Although federal registration of a mark is not mandatory, it has several advantages, including notice to the public of the registrant’s claim of ownership of the mark, legal presumption of ownership nationwide, and an exclusive right to use the mark nationwide on or in connection with the goods/services listed in the registration.

Maldjian Law Group LLC performs trademark screening searches and/or comprehensive clearance searches that help measure the strength and availability of your proposed trademarks, service marks or trade dress to obtain the optimal trademark protection and defenses.

Policing and enforcing your trademark is as important as receiving the registration itself. Maldjian Law Group LLC offers services including, but not limited to, protecting your trademark/service mark, assisting in dispute resolution and negotiating settlement agreements in the United States and abroad.
