At Maschoff Brennan we help clients establish and maintain their brand identities in the marketplace. In addition to patent protection, we have extensive experience in all aspects of domestic and international trademark law and related areas such as copyrights, domain names, trade dress and unfair competition. We help our clients get their branding, messaging, and products to consumers by advising them throughout product design and development, implementation of clinical studies, production, and marketing.

In addition to the intellectual property-related pressures of a highly competitive marketplace, companies that sell, directly or indirectly, products and/or services to consumers face increasing public scrutiny and oversight from federal and state regulatory agencies than ever before. Maschoff Brennan attorneys have valuable experience navigating the regulatory maze - gaining approval from the FDA and FTA, as well as advising on ESG policies, product safety, labeling and liability issues, and related litigation. We also have considerable experience handling internal investigations, unfair trade practices, and claims related to securities disclosures.
