Intellectual Property

We provide our clients with a comprehensive suite of trademark and copyright services.

At Linares Associates PLLC we assist clients nationally and internationally with clearance searches, trademark applications, as well as securing international filings.

Before a trademark can be safely adopted, we perform clearance searches to determine whether the desired mark is available for adoption, use, and registration.  By reviewing the search reports thoroughly, we can conclusively determine the extent to which a mark is already being used and whether its use would adversely impact our client’s use and registration of the mark.

Our clients often want to ensure their trademarks are protected under laws from around the world.  We frequently assist clients with filing trademark applications under the Madrid Protocol, which allows trademark holders to obtain protection in multiple countries by filing a single application.

Our attorneys also file applications to register copyrightable subject matter such as art, music, poetry, computer software, books, magazines, sculpture, architectural plans and other original works of authorship.

Linares Associates PLLC assists clients with maximizing the value of their intellectual property assets through the drafting and negotiation of comprehensive license agreements. We have extensive experience in all aspects of intellectual property licensing including the drafting and negotiation of agreements covering patents, trademarks and copyrights.

In addition, our lawyers effectively administer international trademark registration programs. Along with our carefully-selected group of associates in virtually every country, our trademark practice effectively handles our clients’ branding needs around the world.
