For Immediate Release
Hamburger Law Firm Adds Substantial Trademark Capabilities
Corporate Practice Group is Dedicated to Preserving, Protecting and Growing Client Brands
Englewood, N.J. – July 12, 2010 – MarketCounsel, the leading business and regulatory compliance consulting firm to the country’s preeminent entrepreneurial investment advisors, along with the Hamburger Law Firm, a boutique firm practicing in the areas pertaining to investment and securities law as well as relevant corporate and employment matters, is pleased to announce that it has added substantial new trademark capabilities to the firm.
The expansion is a response to the increasing importance of trademark searching, analysis and filings for entrepreneurial clients. It comes in conjunction with Hamburger Law Firm’s previously announced acquisition of Kupfer & Associates, PLLC. Corey Kupfer, head of Hamburger Law Firm’s Corporate Practice Group, and his long-time colleague Arnie Herz, bring significant experience to trademark matters, including the protection of company names, product and services names, tag lines and logos. Kupfer and Herz have filed and prosecuted thousands of trademarks for clients during their careers.
“We work primarily with entrepreneurs who are focused on building their business and protecting their brand, yet they often don’t know how to search, analyze and file for trademark protection,” said Brian Hamburger, Founder and Managing Member of both MarketCounsel and the Hamburger Law Firm. “All too often, we see entrepreneurs who think they are protected from trademark infringement, only to become one of a growing number of business owners confronted with a trademark infringement case or a cease-and-desist letter.”
The expanded capabilities focus on keeping clients from investing in a brand that is already owned by another business and putting clients in the best position to prevent competitors from infringing on their brand. These services include an analysis of company and product names, as well as tag lines and logos, to determine the risk of infringement and an evaluation of whether a trademark is necessary and valuable for individual companies.
“There are many misconceptions about what constitutes a trademark and how to protect your business from an infringement case,” said Mr. Kupfer, Partner at the Hamburger Law Firm and Chief Strategist at MarketCounsel. “With these expanded capabilities, we can assist business owners in this increasingly important area of law.”
