Erie PA Trademark Lawyer

A trademark can be a way to protect your logo or brand identity from possible infringing businesses.  Whether you know it or not, you are familiar with trademarks.  You see them every day on the products that you buy, and they serve as a way to distinguish goods.  For example, you know a pair of shoes with the Nike swoosh will have certain qualities different from other brands.

Trademark Spectrum of Distinctiveness

The filing of a trademark application begins a legal proceeding having many legal requirements and strict time deadlines.

Attorney Williams can help you before, during and after the trademark application process. He will advise you in the selection, availability for use, and registration of trademarks, service marks, and corporate names. We will handle the preparation and prosecution of applications to register trademarks and service marks and protect and defend those marks which have been selected.
