Trademark and Brand Protection
Lee & Hayes has substantial experience building, maintaining and protecting worldwide trademark portfolios. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, a company’s strong brand translates into customer loyalty, and its trademarks, whether words, logos, pictures, product/packaging designs, sounds, or domain names, should be considered some of its most valuable assets. We help clients develop and strengthen these assets through various means, including registrations with state, federal, and foreign governments. Once these brand assets are created, it is critical to protect them from infringement by other parties. When and if infringement of a mark occurs, or if infringement is alleged, we act quickly to seek a creative business solution that aims to minimize any disruption of business activities. If litigation is necessary, we vigorously defend our clients’ rights and guide our client to an ultimate resolution.
Never has information been so instantly accessible. Written materials can be instantly forwarded to hundreds if not thousands of people worldwide. To maintain the integrity of content, ensure credit is given to the material’s originator and help companies maintain ownership, we work with clients to register, license and enforce the rights to their creative works.
With the mobility of today’s workforce, the ease of access to information and intense global competition, it is vital to protect trade secrets. From processes and formulas to devices and procedures, it is essential to safeguard that knowledge. At Lee & Hayes we identify and determine the best mode of protecting those assets so that your company can maintain its secrecy and benefit from the fruits of its innovations.
