Trademark Infringement Litigation Requires the Help of a Lawyer
Ensuring that your legal rights are protected goes far beyond merely establishing your trademark. To do that, you will need thorough, experienced legal assistance. While you may have noticed one instance where you suspect that your trademark is being infringed, using the law to prove this can be difficult on your own. Lawyers have access to special evidence, such as digital forensics and e-discovery, which will be unavailable to you if you try to pursue your case alone. Furthermore, lawyers may be able to identify and put an end to all trademark infringing activities, including ones you may not have even been aware of. Similarly, if your trademark is being infringed on by an unidentified party, your lawyer will likely be more successful in identifying the offender and bringing them to justice.
Whether you are prosecuting someone for trademark infringement, or someone is bringing a lawsuit against you, it is important to know the difference, including the nuances, between fair use and infringement. Your lawyer will be able to explain these differences to you and determine how they apply in your case, bringing your case to the best possible outcome.

Trademark Infringement Litigation
Enforcing your trademark is crucial if you want to protect the name and reputation of your business. To prove that your trademark has been violated, you will need to demonstrate that:
- That your trademark is legally valid
- That you own the trademark
- That the infringer used your trademark in order to make money
- That the infringer used your trademark without your consent
- That the infringer’s use of your trademark likely led to confusion for potential customers
If you are successfully able to prove these requirements, you may be able to:
- Prevent the infringer from continuing to use your trademarked intellectual property
- Compel the infringer to give you the profits made off the infringement of your trademark
- Compel the infringer to pay your attorney’s fees
It is highly important to defend your trademarks in this way. Failing to defend them can cause you to lose them entirely, harming your business.
Unregistered Trademark Protection
Even if a trademark hasn’t been registered, there may be legal protections available. Under the Lanham Act, unregistered trademarks are protected when the infringement causes confusion or mistaken association with the senior user.
