Orange County Trademark Lawyers
In an increasingly competitive business world—particularly when doing business online, it is vital to set your business apart from your competition with a brand that communicates the quality of your goods or services and the central values of your business. Your brand is represented by the colors, photos, marketing materials, verbiage, fonts, and many other elements you use to present your business to the world. Your trademark is a logo, name, or mark that your business uses in connection with the sale of your goods or services and it communicates many of these brand elements to consumers, as they come to recognize and appreciate your unique position and brand experience.
