Since 1987, Vince Amberly has been providing trademark legal services to businesses and individuals throughout the United States. Vince's trademark counseling has ranged from assisting with the selection and search of a new trademark or service mark to the protection of internationally known trademarks in federal court. Vince's firm offers a full range of services for the federal registration of trademarks in the United States, including the preparation and filing of applications for trademark and service marks at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ("PTO"), the prosecution of trademark applications at the PTO, and the handling of oppositions and cancellations before the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board of the PTO.
Trademark owners must protect against any use of their marks by third parties. Mr. Amberly has handled numerous trademark infringement actions throughout the United States. Usually he represents the trademark owners, and he has instituted trademark policing activities for clients to guard against third party use of confusingly similar names or marks. Vince has successfully halted the unauthorized use of infringing trademarks and names, and has obtained numerous injunctions against third parties who have been using names or marks that have infringed on his clients' trademark rights. In addition, Vince has also successfully defended several clients against allegations of trademark infringement, all in federal courts throughout the country.
In addition to protecting clients' trademarks and service marks, Vince has successfully protected the domain names of clients from infringement. The trademark laws are used as a basis for protecting domain names, and Vince has advised numerous clients on the best strategy for protection of their domain names from similar uses by third parties.
