Unsure about your existing business? Hesitant about starting your new business? Uncertain about how to evaluate new opportunities? Confused about contracts? Worried about negotiations? Not sure whether your personal assets are protected? Insecure about franchising, licensing, co-marketing, or co-developing?
We help with every facet of your business, from formation – to sustainability – to growth – to changing ownership.
Are your ideas protected? Will someone take down your website and claim your domain name? What would happen if you were forced to re-brand? Is your marketing budget going towards liabilities instead of growing your intellectual property assets? Should you trademark your name, your product, your service, or all three?
Branding, trademarks, and online presence are emerging areas of law, and we can help you position yourself.
Have you planned for your future? What about the future of your business? Can your business sustain itself without you? Or, more importantly, can it sustain you and your family without you? Are your Articles of Incorporation and Operating Agreements up to date? Do you have a fully executed Last Will and Testament, Living Will and Powers of Attorney?
Don’t wait until it becomes too late. Estate and succession planning can take some time to implement if complicated.
A strong trademark becomes the face of a company to consumers. Whether your trademark is a simple word, a catchy jingle, or a unique design, that trademark often represents a tremendous amount of your business’s value. At SnyderLaw, we understand the value of obtaining and protecting strong trademarks for your business. We offer strategic counseling for both developing your trademark and for expanding your trademark into a portfolio of brands. Our attorneys are well versed in prosecuting trademark applications before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. SnyderLaw also understands that more and more consumers, and people seeking to confuse consumers, are moving to a digital marketplace. To compensate, SnyderLaw offers businesses services for protecting their digital presence, including domain name protection and acquisition, website takedowns, drafting website terms and conditions, website disclaimers, and Uniform Domain-Name Resolution Policy (UDRP) proceedings. We also offer business-to-business services, such as trademark licensing agreements, intellectual property asset purchases, franchise agreements, and business negotiation.
Patent protection is a key area of the law that allows businesses to gain an upper hand against competitors and provides a pathway for a new business to enter the marketplace. Knowing when your business has a valuable idea worth patenting or dealing with another business that incorrectly attempts to enforce its own patent both present difficulties for most businesses. SnyderLaw represents both established businesses and individual inventors with a wide variety of patent matters, including patent prosecution, patent portfolio management and counseling, patent infringement opinions, and patent validity opinions. Our attorneys are also well equipped to help you and your business contract with other businesses on patent matters, such as licensing agreements, negotiation assistance, review of on-going licensing agreements, non-disclosure agreements, confidentiality agreements, and non-compete agreements.
