Featuring: Paolo A. Strino

The program will include the following topics:

  • What constitutes a registrable trademark and/or trade name.
  • What constitutes valid use of a trademark within the meaning of the Lanham Act.
  • Rights arising from trademark registration.
  • How trademark law can leverage the firm’s advantages to provide services across practice areas.
  • How to educate clients on their soft IP needs rather than “selling” services.
