This webinar was recordedon May 9, 2024.

Conducting trademark clearance searches is both an art and a science, and it is a fundamental element of an overall trademark strategy. Not all searches are the same in scope or intent, and conveying results to the client in a way that they can understand and act upon takes careful consideration. In this webinar, Saunders & Silverstein LLP attorney Matt Saunders guides you through selecting the appropriate search strategy for different situations and clearly communicating that strategy to clients in opinion letters. Topics include:

  • Which type and scope of search to apply to which situations
  • How to use a client’s needs and plans to determine the best search strategy
  • What language to use to explain both risks to use and barriers to registration
  • How to structure an opinion letter to provide actionable information
