Trademarks constitute the valuable badges by which a company distinguishes its wares and services in the market. They are one of the modes by which a company generates vital goodwill. Protection by registration of trademarks enhances a company's ability to enforce nationally the rights it has in these important assets. Let us assist you in protecting your valuable trademarks by registration and, if necessary, enforcement. Your enquiries are welcome. Our services include:
determining trademark availability and registration, including trademarks for wares and services, distinguishing guises (trade dress), certification marks and official marks and the preparation and prosecution of applications for registered trademark rights in Canada and abroad, through our foreign associates.
counselling as to selection, use and enforcement of trademarks including opposition proceedings and expungement proceedings and concerning the trademark rights of third parties.
