What should you do after you pick the perfect name for your new Brooklyn business? Check to see if a desirable domain name is available, and then, talk to a Brooklyn trademark lawyer to make sure your name doesn’t infringe on anyone else’s marks and file a trademark so you have rights to that name. Whether you are an artisanal food production company or an internet startup, Priori Legal can connect you with excellent, vetted Brooklyn trademark lawyers through our on demand marketplace.
A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol or design that distinguishes your brand, such as the name of your company or logo. While you don’t need to register your trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in order to have rights to it, doing so increases your protection. A Brooklyn trademark lawyer can conduct a search of the USPTO database to ensure your proposed mark does not infringe on any existing marks, register your proposed mark with the USPTO, handle any objections (Office Actions) from the USPTO, respond to allegations that your brand is infringing on someone else’s mark or send a cease and desist letter if someone else is infringing on yours. Put in a request explaining your situation and you will receive a shortlist of Brooklyn trademark lawyers from Priori’s vetted network.
