INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

As your intellectual property attorney, Suero Law assists clients with the protection, registration, licensing and enforcement of their intellectual property rights. The firm primarily handles trademarks and copyrights, as well as license agreements and patent agreements.

Trademarks are words, phrases, logos, or symbols used to identify the source of goods or services. A trademark may be the most valuable asset of a business because it is how the public identifies and differentiates your brand from competitors. If not registered or properly used, can result in costly rebranding and/or litigation. At Suero Law, we assist clients with identifying all of their registrable trademarks, provide counsel on how to determine whether trademarks infringe on other existing trademarks in similar class/categories, file federal registration and renewals with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), and provide guidance on how to police and monetize their trademarks.

Copyright law protects creators such as, authors, photographers, and artists, from infringement of works that have been "fixed in a tangible medium". As the author of a work, a creator generally has the exclusive "right to copy" and make derivatives of such works, subject to fair use laws, etc. At Suero Law, clients receive counsel to identify their protected works, timely register them with the U.S. Copyright Office, and monetize them via publication, licensing, nonfungible tokens (NFTs), etc.
