International Trademark Protection
With a name like Marksmen, you best be a crack shot at trademark protection. With more than 65,000 worldwide trademark investigations under our belt, we feel like we've earned the moniker.
We are integral in both the branding and enforcement processes that all companies face in registering, defending and maintaining their trademarks.
In-Use Trademark Investigations
The first instance we help corporations around the world is the front end of branding. Once a company conducts an international trademark search and looks at other applications and registrations to see if the new brand they want is clear, they call us to clarify the search results. And we do just that by investigating international, federal, state and common law trademark use to get the facts on avenues of trade, distribution channels, current use, geographic scope - whatever information is needed to pull the trigger on the new brand launch.
Trademark Enforcement Investigations
If a company learns that someone is misusing their trademark or trying to trade on their name illegally, we go undercover anywhere in the world to gather evidence of infringement, dilution, tarnishment or other unauthorized use in a discreet, confidential and relentless way. This includes tapping into a global network of operatives around the world standing by to follow targets, purchase products, establish jurisdiction, and collect business literature, photographs and digital recordings.
