Video: Black-Owned Business Successfully Protects Its Trademark

Not All Large Brands Are Trademark Bullies

We’ve all heard the stories about huge companies with deep pockets bullying small businesses.

These large brands try to block competition from up & coming companies using dubious trademark tactics.

Their goal is to stretch their trademark protections beyond reasonable limits by using weak arguments.

They know that small companies don’t have the money to fight them and will usually give up. 

So by doing this, they force new companies to rebrand or keep them out of the market altogether.

But that’s not the case for every large brand that raises trademark concerns when a small business is involved.

Often, small businesses cross lines that they shouldn’t, because they don’t know where the lines are. 

That’s what happened when a group of creatives launched a brand that incorporated someone else’s trademark.

Watch as Attorney Faith highlights where these creatives went wrong & learn how you can avoid the same mistake.

Why Choose Mitton Law?

Figuring out which attorney to hire can be challenging when there are so many options. Here are some things to consider when evaluating whether to work with us. Our clients have chosen us because of our:

Clarity

Few things are worse for clients than having a lawyer who they don’t understand. When we communicate with or create a work product for our clients, we aim to be as clear and thorough as possible so that we leave no questions unanswered.

Predictability

Budgeting for legal services can be a challenge when you work with an attorney who only bills hourly. It’s almost impossible to determine how much a particular project will cost you. But we prioritize the use of flat fees so that our clients know exactly what to expect in terms of costs.

Flexibility

Even with flat fees, we know that high-quality legal representation may seem inaccessible to some clients with restricted budgets. We understand cash flow challenges & offer flexible payment plans that allow our clients to break up the payment of fees into manageable chunks that work for them.

Creativity

Our clients are trailblazers, charting their own course through new terrain. We provide innovative solutions to their legal issues & inventive strategies for their operations. Plus, we’re always seeking new ways to practice law & help our clients.

Reliability

In the DIY legal age, it can be hard to know who to trust. But instead of working with some faceless corporation,  our clients know exactly who their attorney is & what her credentials are, so they can be confident that they are receiving the best possible legal representation.

Tech-Savvy

Gone are the days when you had to meet your attorney in person & exchange paper documents. We believe in using industry-leading technology to create a seamless client experience. Our clients can communicate with us confidentially & access their case file from any Internet-connected device through our client portal.
