International Trademarks

We bring a world of proven expertise to our practice of international trademark filings. Our attorneys have extensive international trademark filing experience and are supported by a dedicated staff that helps ensure the rapid and cost-effective resolution of all matters.

Our team of attorneys, paralegals and other personnel are familiar with the distinct legal, language and cultural factors that affect the filing process in such places as China, Japan, Europe, India, Mexico, South America and South Korea. Additionally, we boast a network of nearly 400 trusted foreign attorneys and trademark agents selected for their deep understanding of local jurisdictions and high level of advice and service. Working with our foreign counsel—or existing client counsel—we craft a customized strategy that meets a client’s business and budgetary needs.

Given the breadth of our experience, we are able to understand how international filings fit within overall corporate goals and can quickly identify and avoid any potential registration problems though such actions as negotiating licenses, consent or co-existence agreements, acquiring rights or bringing appropriate challenges to third-party registrations.
