Brownstein’s Brand Management, Trademark and Copyright practice works collaboratively with our clients to develop, protect and leverage valuable intellectual property rights worldwide.
We understand that a company’s brands often rank among its most valuable assets. Our attorneys have extensive portfolio management experience and counsel clients at every stage of brand development: from selecting and clearing new trademarks to securing and maintaining trademark registrations in the U.S. and abroad. In addition, we formulate and execute customized enforcement and licensing programs to maximize the value and scope of our clients’ trademark rights.
As clients increasingly rely on Internet websites and social media to reach customers, our attorneys are at the forefront of rapidly evolving intellectual property issues related to online branding. In addition to managing clients’ domain name portfolios, we offer domain name monitoring services and assist clients in recovering infringing domain names, including through Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution (UDRP) proceedings.
We also provide significant depth of experience in the areas of copyright and entertainment law. We help authors, artists and entertainers protect and exploit their creative works and personal brand identities. In addition, we routinely negotiate and draft entertainment contracts, music licenses and sponsorship and advertising agreements.
Our Brand Management, Trademark and Copyright team collaborates with a variety of practices across the firm, including assisting with complex corporate transactions and consulting on intellectual property litigation in federal and state courts, and before the United States Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB). All of this, in conjunction with our vast network of international affiliates, positions us to handle any intellectual property matter for any size client, wherever and whenever required.
