Whether you’re an entertainer trying to make a name for yourself in Los Angeles, a new fashion brand, an artist or a technology startup, the advice of a trademark lawyer can be crucial. Without making sure your desired name or logo doesn’t infringe on someone else’s rights, you could be wasting substantial time and money. Similarly, if you don’t take proactive steps to protect your brand assets, you might limit your recourse if someone else misappropriates them. Priori Legal makes it easy to connect with top Los Angeles trademark lawyers through our on-demand, curated 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 Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles trademark lawyers from Priori’s vetted network.
