Patent, Trademarks, Copyrights - Intellectual Property

Intellectual property (IP) strategy and protection are two of the most important considerations for any company entering the U.S. market. At a minimum, every company should protect its name and logo when entering the U.S. market by filing a trademark application(s) with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Protecting your company's IP is of the utmost importance for any business; especially those that export or source products in other countries, or manufacture overseas. Although it is difficult to determine the scope of challenges a business might face from IP infringement, it has the potential to create significant problems.

Understanding IP issues is extremely important and should be properly addressed by expert IP counsel. Take the time to understand your company’s intellectual property, the basics of trademarks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets before entering the U.S. market.
