Copyright & Trademark


Our brilliant intellectual property attorneys establish and protect your copyrights and trademarks and manage your commercially valuable property through all stages under this highly unique area of federal law. We handle everything from comprehensive copyright and trademark searching to clearance, filing, and registering, to maintenance and recordation, and even litigation, if that’s what’s necessary to protect your established property.

As a business owner, one of the most influential methods of telling consumers what your business is and who you are is through a trademark. Business trademarks – such as a simple word, phrase, or logo –  allow your business to distinguish itself from competitors and can often be a catalyst for burgeoning client and customer growth. Schlichter, Shonack & Keeton, LLP will work with you to properly secure your own creative and unique business feature while improving your business’s consumer appeal and providing federal protection of your intellectual property.

In addition to copyrights and trademarks, SS&K has vast experience in legal matters concerning trade secrets and theft, unfair competition, unfair trade practices, false advertising, “bait and switch” selling tactics, use of confidential information by former employee to solicit customers, breach of restrictive covenant, and trade libel. Should an occasion arise, our attorneys will aggressively protect you and your business from any commercial threats or intrusions.
