Intellectual Property

We have seen a notable increase in state trademark filings for cannabis brand names since California kicked off legalized medical and recreational cannabis in 2018.

We have seen a notable increase in state trademark filings for cannabis brand names since California kicked off legalized medical and recreational cannabis in 2018. We anticipate an increase in patent and trademark filings with the USPTO as the 2018 Farm Bill is fully implemented by states this year. The Farm Bill removed hemp and products derived from hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, allowing for federal trademark registrations. 

Clients who need to protect their intellectual property rely on us to  obtain trademarks and vigorously protect other aspects of their intellectual property. We have experience filing trademark applications for cannabis and healthcare companies, as well as prosecuting and defending claims of infringement. We can also assist with brand counseling, copyrights, licensing agreements and trade secret disputes.
