Since 1985, TOPTEAM has has helped our clients secure tens of thousands of IP rights in Taiwan, the US, Europe, Japan, and other major markets.

At TOPTEAM, our trademark practice supports brand protection in every area over the full lifespan of a trademark. In the early stage, we counsel clients on trademark selection, adoption, and filing strategies. Our experience in handling complex foreign and domestic trademark issues, in terms of volume and complexity, allows us to identify and mitigate potential risks, including unwanted office actions during prosecution or post-registration proceedings.

Led by knowledgeable and skilled counsel, our service team includes attorneys with substantial civil and administrative litigation expertise. This enables us to draw up commercially sensible and cost-effective solutions with clients who are seeking practical advice on trademark portfolio management, internal remedies, training, online brand protection, dispute resolution, or adequate measures to curb infringements of any sort.

Nothing is too small for issues related to trademark abuse. With this in mind, TOPTEAM extends our full support to local and foreign companies in dealing with their trademarks’ unauthorized use and infringement risks. Our monitoring service detects and alerts adversarial threats, either knowingly or unknowingly. Apart from that, we work closely with customs and IPR police in raids on counterfeits and assist our clients in preserving the evidence and preparing the documents needed for further action.

Depending on the circumstances and the clients’ best interests, we may send a cease-and-desist letter or takedown notice, apply for preliminary injunctions, seek monetary relief, file a civil action, or take other approaches to curtail the likelihood of confusion caused by wrongdoings.
