Protecting your Property with a Trademark

Our law firm helps clients in Georgia obtain and enforce legal ownership over the features that define their goods and services. Our firm believes that registered trademarks are an essential means of legally establishing the integrity of your business and brand.

Registered trademarks serve two important functions:

If you believe that you are entitled to a trademark, or if you believe that your trademark has been violated, do not hesitate to contact our firm.

Are you eligible for a Trademark?

Trademarks can appear as names, designs, logos, emblems, and even songs. In Georgia, if your trademark is not currently in use, then you cannot apply for trademark registration. (This differs slightly from the federal trademark registration process, which permits 'intent to use' in some cases.) At the state and federal level, there are several common reasons why your trademark may be deemed ineligible for registration:

The application for a Georgia trademark must be filed with the Georgia Secretary of State and the application for a federal trademark must be filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. To ensure that you are complying with procedural requirements, contact our law firm for assistance.

Fighting Trademark Violations

Successful trademark registration provides a legal basis to claim a trademark as exclusively yours should another business try to use it. However, trademark registration does not ensure that another business will not try to deceptively use your trademark. When trademark infringement occurs, there is a great risk that consumers' expectations about your brand will be negatively impacted.

Trademark infringement is not limited to identical usage; likelihood to cause confusion, due to similarity, may be enough to file a trademark infringement claim. If you believe this to be the case, contact our law firm for assistance.
