Selecting, securing, maintaining, and protecting a brand requires a thoughtful strategy. It involves careful coordination within the United States and abroad. Hodgson Russ attorneys have a wealth of experience in all areas of trademark law and brand management. Our attorneys provide comprehensive and practical advice in the areas of trademark clearance and selection, trademark prosecution and registration, trademark portfolio development and management, trademark enforcement, and trademark transactions. We also work with a vast network of agents in jurisdictions throughout the world to provide strategic trademark counseling in numerous countries.

An integral element of brand management involves protecting a brand’s online presence. Hodgson Russ attorneys assist with domain name registration services and work with clients to register Internet domain names through appropriate registrars and to secure website addresses for brands and businesses. Registering domain names at the outset allows clients to reap the benefits of broad exposure over the Internet while also limiting the risks of misuse by others.
