How An International Trade Law Attorney Helps
International trade law requires a different lens for assessing risk. Think IP and data first. Before planning your company’s international marketing strategy, ensure that intellectual assets are protected and local data law understood.
- Word Marks.
- Design Marks.
- Trademarks registered in the U.S. still need local protection in other jurisdictions.
Protecting Domestic Market Share
- Using trademark, copyright, and patent to stop infringement from foreign business.
We align legal strategy to business strategy so that your international economic goals drive our work, not the other way around.
- How you market & the information you collect may be regulated.
Know that many countries regulate data collection and use more heavily than the U.S. does, and adapt your global trade strategy accordingly.
