As a business, you want the ability to protect your brand and your reputation.

Merithew Law offers a comprehensive trademark service, including registration, monitoring and enforcement, acquisition, assignment, licensing, and consulting related to state, federal, and international trademarks.
Almost any venture with a creative aspect will come across the field of copyright law. While some protection matters are straightforward, Forrest can assist with the ones that get complicated. From registration and drafting policies to regular monitoring and (rarely) litigation, Forrest will work with you on the ins and outs of your business copyright plan.
Domain Name Acquisition and Protection
Merithew Law assist clients in acquiring their desired business domain name through negotiation, arbitration, and litigation. You may have rights to a domain name that is currently registered by someone else. With the explosion of e-commerce and search marketing, getting the perfect domain name matters more now than ever. Forrest can advise you on how to go about registering or acquiring your domain and protecting it long-term.
IP Licensing is an area of growing importance to businesses and solo practitioners that often requires the expertise of a dedicated attorney. Licensing agreements may take a variety of different forms depending on the industry, subject matter, duration, and expected use of the property to be licensed. Spending a little extra time on the front end developing a strategy can pay off in the long run with a competitive IP portfolio.
