Springfield IP Attorneys Protecting Your Trademarks and Copyrights

Neale & Newman, L.L.P. provides sophisticated, cost-effective service for trademark and copyright issues. Our firm efficiently uses cutting-edge technology, yet has a small-town background that’s reflected in the way we treat our clients: with respect and friendliness, like our neighbors.

Our intellectual property practice is closely related to our other services in business and commercial law and in business organizations. Our Springfield-based attorneys represent clients in Missouri and nationwide.

IP Law Services

If you have a new idea, we can help you secure the rights to it. If you are starting a new business, we can help you protect the images and words associated with it. At Neale & Newman, we:

  • Handle initial filings for trademarks and copyrights
  • Respond to objections over trademarks, whether from the trademark office or from a private individual or business
  • Protect your trademark or copyright in cases of infringement
  • Represent your business in a trademark or copyright dispute, including trademark and copyright litigation, trademark oppositions before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), and domain name arbitration proceedings

Our IP lawyers also handle various issues related to licensing agreements, including trademark licenses, software and technology licenses, copyright licenses and website disclaimers. We handle issues related to trade dress and trade secrets, as well as issues related to franchising.

Trademark and Copyright Litigation

If someone has infringed on your trademark or copyright, we can help you go after them. Likewise, if you have been accused of a copyright violation, we can defend you against the accusation.
