Trademarks

registered trademark kalamaras law office kloKalamaras Law Office helps clients with everything from conducting a U.S. trademark search to filing a federal trademark application with the Trademark Office. We can also draft a license agreement and negotiate any dispute and resolution proceedings that may arise throughout the life of any type of trademark. Specifically, our capabilities include the following:

Trademark Clearance and Prosecution

We regularly counsel clients on how to choose a new brand name for their business venture. This process begins by conducting a U.S. trademark search to ensure the mark is available for the client’s use and adoption prior to filing a Federal trademark application. After the trademark search is completed, we provide our clients will a full analysis distilling the search report. Our law office is also well-versed in USPTO trademark search practices when a client’s budget does not allow for full availability searches.  Once the mark is clear, a Federal trademark application is prepared and filed by us with the U.S. Trademark Office. Our law office then handles all the necessary paperwork from the Trademark Office in order to seek registration of the mark, including preparing responses to Office Actions. Once registered, allow us to maintain and renew your mark. Do you have a new mark you are thinking of registering? Have you received an Office Action you need assistance responding to? If so, please contact us for a no obligation quote and to get started.

Enforcement/Arbitration/Litigation

Trademark owners have a right to police their marks or risk losing their trademarks. If your trademark is being infringed, we can help. We help our clients police their trademarks (both for a registered trademark and those used without a federal registration) by enforcing our clients’ trademark rights against third party infringers.  Kalamaras Law Office handles internet infringement, trademark opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, counterfeit goods, as well as all other types of infringement. To tackle cyber squatting or any type of infringement, we often begin by sending a cease and desist letter to the alleged infringer alerting them to your trademark rights and demanding corrective action be taken. Contact us to discuss your particular issue.

Licensing/Assignment

To commercially exploit your trademark, you may want to license your mark to third parties to generate additional revenue. Or, if you are selling your company, perhaps an assignment is in order. Whatever your circumstances, we can help. We assist clients by drafting the right license agreement and/or trademark assignment to meet your business objectives. If you are acquiring a trademark or copyright portfolio through merger or acquisition, we can help with the due diligence evaluation and chain of title search to ensure the deal is properly represented.
