Black & Wadhams is here to help you protect your intangible assets. Intellectual Property Law deals with laws to protect and enforce rights of the creators and owners of inventions, writing, music, designs, and other creative works. Just as there are laws to protect tangible assets, like real estate, there are also laws to protect the exclusive control of intangible assets.

Black & Wadhams’ attorneys have years of experience in assisting businesses register their trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). A trademark is a symbol, design, phrase or word that distinguishes the source of a product or service. Having one means people can differentiate you and your business from similar goods and services offered by your competition.

Once you register a trademark, it’s up to you, rather than the USPTO, to enforce those trademarks. Black & Wadhams can aid with any conflict that comes up with your registered trademark.

Trade Names

Black & Wadhams is here to assist your business in securing its trade name. A company typically uses a trade name to conduct business using a simpler name rather than using their formal and often lengthier legal name. Trade names are also used when a preferred name cannot be registered, often because it may already be registered or is too similar to a name that is already registered.
