Sincerity, understanding, expert knowledge and professionalism are some of the many traits I have had the pleasure of experiencing at Bray & Long. There is no one else I would trust with my personal and business legal advice.

Intellectual Property

The intellectual property professionals at Bray & Long offer skilled, prompt and affordable services in the areas of trademark, copyright, licensing and enforcement.  The firm is a regional leader in terms of providing its clients with a broad-based intellectual property practice that handles both registration and the ongoing business of licensing and protecting their creative works or likeness.

Trademark and copyright registration is a technical process that requires extensive legal experience if your goal is to protect your interests in a secure and long-term fashion.  Bray & Long has successfully registered hundreds of applications and brings a wealth of knowledge to each client’s project.

For trademark applications, the intellectual property team will first guide you through the search process to determine if your mark is capable of registration.  Search results can typically be returned for your review within a few days, after which our lawyers will finalize your application to the United States Patent and Trademark Office in the manner that best ensures a smooth and successful registration process.

Copyright applications are equally as technical in nature as trademarks, and although many applicants attempt to register their copyrights themselves, the danger in doing so can be great when considering the long-term protection afforded by a properly managed application.  Bray & Long makes every effort to complete and file copyright applications within one week of being retained.

Obtaining registration for trademarks and copyrights is only part of the intellectual property practice at Bray & Long.  The balance of our work in this area involves the business of managing your IP and protecting against its unlawful infringement.
