Restaurants

From a small sandwich shop to a high-end destination restaurant, a restaurant’s brand is critical to its business. Feldman Law Group helps restaurants protect their good name against unauthorized use by others.  We assist restaurants large and small with intellectual property law matters.

Trademark Protection

As a restaurant builds its reputation with customers, the power of its name in the marketplace grows stronger.  Feldman Law Group helps clients develop a strategy for protecting that valuable asset against threats from unauthorized use.

The intellectual property attorneys at Feldman Law Group advise clients about registering the names and logos used in the restaurant business as federally protected trademarks. Because not every name is eligible for trademark protection, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) reviews applications for trademark registrations carefully.  We act as an experienced guide through the review and registration process.

Our attorneys also evaluate the chances of success for obtaining trademark protection and advise clients on the registration process itself.  If a client proceeds with trademark registration, we will gather and organize the needed information and file the application with the USPTO.  If the USPTO has follow-up questions, we navigate clients through preparing a response.

Defending and Maintaining Trademarks

Once a client has obtained a trademark registration, Feldman Law Group can help maintain and defend the trademark rights.  Our experienced attorneys help clients enforce trademark rights in court if another party is misusing their trademarked name. If another party is challenging their right to use the trademark name, we help clients defend against claims of trademark infringement.

We offer clients a full range of litigation services relating to trademark matters, including:

  • Case evaluation
  • Litigation strategy
  • Drafting complaints, motions, and briefs
  • Document and expert discovery
  • Motions practice
  • Trial
  • Appeals
  • Settlement negotiations

We also offer administrative services for maintaining and renewing a trademark portfolio.  We assist clients with scheduling renewal fee payments, filing renewal notices, and other routine administrative tasks needed to maintain their rights.
