Trademarks

It’s a sad reality, but it’s true: there are people who wish to profit off your name. By trademarking your name and/or brand identity, you add value to your business–now and in the future. Trademarks protect your identity and allow customers to differentiate between you and your competitors. Plus, they are an asset and can appreciate in value over time. Trademarks can be sold and licensed, allowing you to earn passively based on identity alone.

Copyrights

Your creative expression deserves to be protected. By copywriting your original works of art, literature, music–even software, you are protecting the ability to earn income from the work you’ve done. A copyright requires others to seek permission prior to using your work and allows you to receive damages should the work be used without your consent. We help our clients protect their work from misuse.

Trade Secrets
