Industry leaders rely on the breadth and depth of the Brinks Trademark Practice Group to deliver thoughtful and efficient brand protection strategies.
Recent examples include a U.S. News and World Report ranking as a national Tier One firm in Trademark Law in 2013-2017, a ranking by Managing Intellectual Property as “Trademark Litigation Firm of the Year–Midwest“ in 2009 through 2011 and 2013, and accolades from Intellectual Property Today as one of the top firms for securing U.S. trademark registrations in 2012 and 2014.
Our deep bench of trademark experts allows us to deliver thoughtful and efficient protection strategies to a broad range of leading companies to efficiently meet their brand protection goals. Our attorneys can provide litigation, protection, and counseling services to address issues our clients face. We utilize traditional enforcement mechanisms – such as cease and desist letters, trademark oppositions, and district court litigation. Our attorneys also utilize less traditional enforcement mechanisms such as working with keyword advertisers and online retailers to remove infringing ads and products, coordinating social media monitoring and enforcement, managing Customs and Border Patrol protection and filing false advertising claims in court and with the Better Business Bureau’s National Advertising Division. We also represent clients in arbitration proceedings, utilize the International Trade Commission, and litigate in district court to address gray-market infringement and coordinate foreign counterfeit seizures.
Brinks represents industry leaders, Fortune 100 companies and famous global brands. Our clients include the world's largest airline, largest apparel company, largest direct selling company, largest baking company and one of the world's most prestigious universities.
