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

In addition to copyrights and trademarks, S&S 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. Our attorneys will aggressively protect you and your business from any commercial threats or intrusions should an occasion arise.
