Intellectual Property Due Diligence
Performing intellectual property due diligence by checking the validity of new trademark, domain or brand name, jurisdiction, language and culture should not be overlooked. This can cause embarrassment and even litigation risks from other third parties who have already filed or use the trademark.
Our team performs in-use investigations and domain name investigations as part of the intellectual property due diligence process.
We assist clients identify all available information that is sought about their trademark, including;
- whether it is currently being used
- when the mark was first used
