Intellectual Property

Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions, literary and artistic works, designs, symbols, names, and images used in commerce.

IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright, and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the broader public interest, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish.

At Braswell & Vianna we help individuals and businesses protect, monetize, and benefit from profitable brands with their trademarks. Our main IP services include: ​

  • Trademark search and registration
  • Trademark office actions
  • Trademark maintenance and renewal
  • Trademark enforcement
  • Trademark representation before the TTAB
