Trademark Registration and Licensing


Morningstar Law Group understands the importance of trademarks to all businesses, from new start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, and is prepared to help all of its clients ensure they have the correct strategies in place to fully protect and capitalize on their marks. Our trademark attorneys have significant experience in all matters associated with clearing, registering, maintaining, licensing, and protecting trademarks, both in the United States and around the world. Our firm’s size allows us to provide these services in close cooperation with our clients at rates that would be difficult for a larger firm to match. Our experience extends to a number of different industries, including:

  • Retail
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Manufacturing
  • Heavy Equipment
  • Food and Beverage
  • Computer Software and Hardware
  • Cleaning Products
  • Broadcast Media
  • Telecommunications
  • Clothing and Apparel

From international filing strategies and licensing programs to single registrations, we have successfully guided our clients through the potential minefields of growing and protecting their brands.

As businesses change and more and more business moves online, our trademark practice has grown and adapted to ensure that our clients are ready to face new challenges, such as the expansion of the generic top-level domain space (gTLD), the growth of social media, and the ever-present threat of cybersquatting.

Further, when registrations and licensing are not enough, Morningstar’s trademark lawyers have significant experience in protecting their clients’ trademarks in all manner of dispute-related proceedings including oppositions, cancellations, cease and desist letters, UDRP complaints, and enforcement litigation.

Regardless of the challenge, Morningstar provides the counsel that our clients need to make the best decisions for their businesses.
