Dallas Trademark Lawyers
Your trademarks are crucial to the success of your business. Trademarks and service marks provide the public with the ability to associate your business with its products and services. They can include words, names, symbols, sounds, scents or colors that identify the source of goods and services and distinguish them from those manufactured or sold by others.

Understanding Your Options
The rights associated with a trademark and logo can exist solely on the basis of a business’ or seller’s use of them. You need not register with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to have rights on the mark. As long as you use the mark in commerce, you retain specific rights. However, federal registration can provide your business with additional legal protection, as well as additional legal benefits by providing notice to the public of your claim of ownership in the mark. There are two types of federal trademark applications:
- Use-based: Actual use by the applicant of the mark in interstate commerce within the United States
- Intent-to-use: A bona fide intention on the part of the applicant to use the mark in interstate commerce within the United States
Registration also provides a legal presumption of nationwide ownership and grants your business rights to use that mark in connection with the goods or services, which you describe in your trademark application.
Our lawyers can assist you with registration of trademarks or service marks for products or services in almost any business, whether that business is a lawn care service, restaurant or bank. We assist you in obtaining trademark protection for your business. Additionally, we assist in trademark licensing, counseling and representation.
We also represent parties in trademark infringement litigation.
