Trademark & Brand Protection Services

Brand strategies are more complex than ever and require an equally complex protection strategy. Here’s how our trademark team delivers:

  • Trademark registration. We can file anywhere in the world.
  • Strategy development and trademark portfolio management. We work directly with your in-house teams to develop IP protection strategies that cover the unique and proprietary aspects of your brands. We prepare company brand standards, draft contracts and co-branding agreements, and develop monitoring practices to ensure proper worldwide marking, as well as provide training for in-house teams to be sure marketing and legal are on the same page.
  • Enforcement of trademark rights.We have successfully preserved our clients rights through trademark oppositions and cancellation proceedings, and have experience with using ICANN resolution proceedings to resolve domain name disputes.
  • Internal remedies. We assist with confidentiality agreements, security systems, corporate brand usage policies, licensing guidelines and employee education.
  • Comprehensive trademark search and selection. Before you invest heavily in a brand or product name we conduct a world-wide trademark search to see what’s available. We’ll even help you adapt your name if necessary.
  • Worldwide trademark watch service. This service is free of charge.
  • Online brand protection remedies. We can help you manage domain name disputes, cybersquatters, inappropriate linking, mark dilution, meta-data piracy, search-related misappropriation and social media implications.
  • Branding initiative support. This includes searching for trademark availability, ranking creative based on protection options and reserving names, slogans and logos.
  • Providing trademark clearance opinions.
  • Online brand monitoring. It’s important for brand owners to monitor the online marketplace and social media for infringement or misuse of their brands. We can develop a framework for online monitoring that we can either manage for you or transfer to your team.
  • Domain name research, registration and negotiation. We can help you secure your desired domain name, using ICANN remedies if necessary.
  • Clearance opinions. Trademark should consider not only existing registrations in markets important to Polestar, but should also include social media searches.
