Join Partner Kirby Drake at the Trademark Boot Camp CLE

Trademark Boot Camp – Nuts and Bolts of Trademark Law for the Uninitiated

Whether you are new to the practice of law in general (i.e., newly admitted attorney, law student, or paralegal) or are new to trademark law (i.e., non-IP attorney or paralegal), the Trademark Boot Camp on March, 22, 2019, will provide the nuts and bolts of trademark law to help you in protecting what can represent one of the most important assets of many businesses.

On March 22, join the State Bar of Texas IP Section in collaboration with the Dallas Bar Association IP Section and the Texas Regional United States Patent and Trademark Office for a program that will provide an overview of what trademarks are, why to protect them, how to select a trademark, and file a trademark. The program also will include an overview of the examination process. The program will conclude by discussing maintenance of trademarks, challenging trademarks, and USPTO resources for trademark law.
