TLG attorneys have substantial experience representing clients with extensive portfolios of domestic and international trademarks and service marks, as well as clients who simply require immediate, cost-effective service to complete a single, routine registration.

The firm’s attorneys evaluate proposed marks and competitive issues, complete registrations, handle office actions and other administrative procedures initiated by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and represent clients in enforcement procedures and in response to adverse claims by third parties.

The firm works, as supervising intellectual property counsel, with attorneys in law firms worldwide to secure international registrations. The firm also represents clients in trademark assignment and licensing matters, and in support of mergers, acquisitions and other business transactions.

The head of the TLG intellectual property practice group holds a peer-review rating (AV) by Martindale-Hubbell and was named to the “Best Lawyers in the Bay Area” list published by Bay Area Lawyer Magazine in the area of intellectual property.

While most of our intellectual property work involves the major technology industries, we also support many non-technology industries with special business and intellectual property issues. For example, TLG represents wineries in trademark matters. A familiarity with this unique industry gained from years of experience has proven invaluable in successfully representing wineries and their owners.
