Trademark, Copyright, and Brand Protection

The attorneys at Chilivis Grubman regularly advise artists, entertainers, businesses, and entrepreneurs in trademark, brand protection, and copyrights, providing innovative and aggressive legal strategies for growing and protecting our clients’ goodwill and reputation and protecting their musical, literary, and technical works.

A trademark is critical to establishing your image, your brand, and indeed, your very name. To that end, Chilivis Grubman works tirelessly to help our clients navigate the entire trademark process, from selection and registration, all the way through policing established trademark rights, and everything in between. We vigorously enforce our clients’ trademark and trade dress rights by sending and responding to cease-and-desist letters and litigating in the USPTO and federal courts, obtaining temporary restraining orders and injunctive relief in the latter where necessary to put a halt to infringing and damaging conduct. We also help established brands stamp out inauthentic and counterfeit goods sold on and other retailers. We will work with your quality control team to plug holes in your authorized retail chain and develop strong anti-counterfeiting measures.

Copyrights are integral to protecting your original works of authorship and expression, including your music, photographs, literary work, and much more. Chilivis Grubman handles all aspects of copyright protection, including copyright registration, monetization, and vigorous enforcement of our client’s copyrighted material.
