Work with an attorney to make sure
a settlement agreement protects your business.
Once both parties have agreed to the resolution of a trademark dispute, they should always sign an agreement. Experienced trademark attorneys will assist you in writing a settlement agreement or reviewing an agreement provided by the other party.
You fill out the law firm's online agreement and pay the flat fee by credit card.
The trademark attorney assigned to your case contacts you to discuss your goals and the essential terms that should be included in the settlement.
Once the final settlement agreement has been reviewed by both parties, it is signed, thus concluding the dispute.
Every case is different, but there is a universal list of terms that should be included in every settlement agreement to ensure that common risks are accounted for. For example, what countries does the agreement apply to? What happens if one of the parties is sold or goes out of business? What happens if one of the parties would like to apply for a similar trademark in the future? Working with an experienced trademark attorney is the best way to ensure your business is protected, now and into the future.
