Our Practices

Intellectual Property

"Protecting your brand"

A company’s brand – its name, logo, tagline and domain name – greatly influence what people think about the company’s identity, products, services and reputation. This means the brand is also one of the company’s greatest assets. Niles Barton’s intellectual property attorneys help clients trademark their brands and then protect the trademarks from being violated or misrepresented, especially in today’s digital world.

With the internet being an essential part of how businesses communicate and represent themselves, we also manage our clients’ trademarked brands online. Niles Barton’s intellectual property attorneys assist clients with selecting and registering trademarks and domain names and monitoring the use of their brand online. We also protect clients’ intellectual property rights and handle trademark disputes, mediation and prosecution.
