Understanding Trade Dress
In general, trade dress is a term used to describe the overall appearance or image of a business or that of the products or services it provides. This appearance or image encompasses numerous factors, including packaging and the custom design that distinguish your business and products from others. If another person or business in Fort Worth copies your business’s trade dress, that party has infringed upon your intellectual property rights and may be held accountable.
The attorneys at Gagnon, Peacock & Vereeke, P.C., are dedicated to protecting the trade dress of companies in Fort Worth and may help you pursue financial compensation from the company or individual that violated the law that protects your original services and design.

However, now you can collect damages for any kind of trade dress infringement–such as the use of the graphics, colors, design, etc. of any business or its products. With the help of an experienced Fort Worth trade dress attorney, you might be able to recover damages for:
- Lost profits
