Our Patent, Trademark and Business Practice Areas

At Cohen IP Law Group, P.C., our intellectual property lawyers have extensive expertise in all aspects of the law, with a fundamental focus on intellectual property. Here’s an overview of those aspects to give you a solid idea of what our firm is equipped to handle on your behalf.


TRADEMARKS: Trademarks are a form of intellectual property rights for elements that identify a product or service’s source. They help businesses differentiate their goods from that of the competition’s, and assist customers to know what they are getting and from whom. Brand’s logos, slogans, names, and even sounds can be trademarked. Our two most common services regarding trademarks are trademark searches and applications.

TRADEMARK SEARCHERS: Performing a trademark search before filing for one is essential to avoid problems down the road. Visit our trademark searches section and find out more.

TRADEMARK APPLICATIONS: We have a lot of experience in this area, having filed hundreds of trademark applications with the USPTO for our clients.


PATENTS: Patents are another form of intellectual property used to secure inventions. Once issued, patents belong to the inventor or organization owning the rights. Once held, a patent can be licensed to others for use of the invention, or outright sold. Unlike other forms of IP, patents have to comply with a number of stringent conditions to be issued. Our services are designed to make that process as easy as possible.

PATENT SEARCHERS:  Patent searches involve examining existing patents related to your invention to figure out if your new idea has already been patented. A necessary step before applying for one. You can go to our section on patent searches and find out more.

PATENT APPLICATION:  Once you have developed an invention you need to protect it, which can be a complicated process. Especially without the proper guidance. That’s what we are here for.

PATENT OFFICE ACTIONS:  The patenting process doesn’t end when an application is filed with the USPTO. That only triggers a lengthy process of examination and vetting that takes place before your patent is issued. We are well-versed in this process and will guide you through it.

DESIGN PATENTS: Design patents are a particular form of IP protection for the ornamental design and appearance of a functional item, that lasts 14 years from issuing. Our lawyers have dealt with many of these patents in the past. Learn how they can assist with yours too.


Litigation comprises a big part of what we do here at Cohen IP Law Group. Often used as a defensive measure to safeguard corporate assets and their intellectual property. Whether you are a plaintiff seeking to achieve expedited injunctive relief, or a defendant trying to protect your rights, we can achieve a cost-effective solution to prevent or minimize additional harm.

Some of the areas of litigation where we are most experienced:


Copyrights are a form of IP that governs artistic and creative works. They represent the legal right of a creator to print, publish, perform, film, or record any form of literary, artistic, or musical material.

Copyrights can be exclusive or assignable, and they remain in place for several years depending on the specifics of the creation.

We offer a number of comprehensive solutions and services when it comes to Copyrights. Get more details about when you might need to copyright a piece of content.
