Making Your Mark

Trademarks involve the public face of your company. Whether it is a word, phrase, symbol or design, a trademark helps consumers to recognize you as the source of the product, goods, or services and to differentiate yourself from competitors. They are different from copyrights and patents in that they do not expire after a certain period as long as the trademark continues to indicate goods and services.

At Rhodes LLP, we offer a broad range of trademark portfolio services to establish, manage and protect trademarks. Working with clients of all sizes here in the U.S. as well as those in or entering the global market, our lawyers provide successful brand management enforcement involving trademarks. It is often best if we are involved early in the process to minimize later litigation risk as you pursue business goals and strategies.
