What Every Client Should Know About Trademarks

Presented by: Dan Nguyen, Esq.

Synopsis: An overview about trademarks, how they compare to other types of intellectual property, what makes a good trademark, and real life stories about trademarks gone awry.

He was a Super Lawyer's Rising Star in 2015 and 2016 and has served as a professor of law teaching law firm practice management. His clients include TASTEA, a smoothie and tea shop with over $1,000,000 in average store revenue, and INNOVATIVE RESULTS, voted Orange County’s #1 Personal Trainers 2 years in a row.
