Wolf Greenfield, New England’s largest firm dedicated to trademark law, filed 292 trademark applications last year according to a Marketwire post today making it the fifth straight year of record breaking for the firm. Trademark law is a highly specialized practice area in an arena where diligence and expertise are necessary in the protection of trademarks and trade names. Unlike patents or other intellectual property, a trademark can be renewed indefinitely every ten years. However, if the owner of the mark does not take active steps to protect the mark it can be appropriated by other users. Firms specializing in the area do more than filing applications for their clients; they advise clients on how best to maintain and protect their marks, which can be irreplaceable assets.
Since 1927, Wolf Greenfield has focused solely on intellectual property law. Based in Boston, Wolf practices worldwide working closely with a carefully-selected network of foreign IP law firms to help clients develop and execute international filing strategies and defend their rights in global markets.
