Trademark

Kenyon & Kenyon LLP is renowned for its ability to handle the national and international clearance, registration, maintenance, and protection of trademarks for a vast number of small, medium, and Fortune 500 companies. We also prosecute and maintain thousands of trademark applications and registrations worldwide every year. In addition, we have a distinguished record of achieving results on behalf of clients engaged in trademark disputes brought before U.S. district courts, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States, as well as the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (“TTAB”), the World Intellectual Property Organization, and the National Arbitration Forum. Trusting in our knowledge and experience, companies seek our counsel in critical decisions regarding brand development, portfolio optimization, and corporate name changes needed on an emergency basis. In addition, we are well-versed in negotiating and drafting trademark transactional agreements on behalf of both licensors and licensees.

We are recognized by legal referral guides and leading publications such as the Financial Times, Managing Intellectual Property, The Legal 500, Intellectual Property Today, US News Best Lawyers, and World Trademark Review, as one of the most prominent trademark practices in the country. Managing Intellectual Property selected Kenyon as the North American Trademark Prosecution Firm of the Year in 2010, and The Legal 500 US ranks us in the top tiers for Trademark Non-Contentious Matters. We are equally well-regarded for our representation of clients in contentious trademark matters. The Legal 500 US ranks Kenyon among the top tier trademark litigation firms, describing our practice as “skilled at extensive trial preparation, as well as in delivering effective advocacy both at interlocutory and full trial stages.” World Trademark Review 1000 acknowledges Kenyon as a leading trademark practice, and among those firms which are setting the industry benchmark for trademark services.

As leaders in the field, we are frequently sought out to speak at major international conferences held by respected organizations such as the International Trademark Association (“INTA”), the American Bar Association (“ABA”), the Global Conference for Mobile Technology (“GSMA”), and the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (“AIPPI”). We also author trademark articles for major industry publications such as World Trademark Review, Trademark World and the INTA Bulletin.
