The legal team at Kolesar & Leatham is committed to helping clients protect and defend their intellectual property rights. Our lawyers represent large corporations, small and mid-sized businesses, individuals and other parties throughout the State of Nevada and around the globe in both routine and complex trademark and copyright matters.

The attorneys in our Intellectual Property practice are business savvy professionals with a vast understanding of the sophisticated body of laws designed to safeguard trademarks and copyrighted materials. We take the time to understand our clients’ projects and operations so that we can create plans and strategies that best preserve and enhance the value of their business assets.


Trademarks

The attorneys in our Intellectual Property practice provide a full spectrum of trademark services to our clients. We search trademark availability providing clients with written opinions outlining all issues uncovered in our investigation. Once we address potential risks and challenges, our lawyers carefully draft and file federal trademark applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) as well as international registration bodies. Our attorneys carefully monitor and review our clients’ trademark portfolios to ensure that all filings are made on time. We work to develop policies and procedures that best advance and protect our clients’ trademark rights.

In addition to trademark registrations, the attorneys at our firm regularly assist clients in responding to USPTO actions. We also negotiate trademark licensing agreements and represent clients in connection with disputes involving the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).


Copyrights

At Kolesar & Leatham we understand just how valuable intellectual property can be for a business. We work side by side with our clients to make certain that their creative works are fully protected. Whether the material involves computer software, online advertising, a song, or play, our intellectual property attorneys help clients to identify copyrightable assets and secure federal copyright registrations with the U.S. Copyright Office when appropriate. We also submit and respond to Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) notices and take-down requests for online materials and advise clients on fair use issues that may arise in connection with their business activities.

The attorneys at our firm regularly work with clients to draft and negotiate licensing agreements for copyrighted content. When we discover pirating or unauthorized use of copyrighted materials, our litigation team is fully prepared to take swift legal action to protect and enforce our clients’ intellectual property rights.
