You get the personalized attention required to address all your legal needs

Serving companies in France for their trademark, copyright, contracting, licensing, and litigation needs in the United States.


A Law Firm Devoted to Your U.S. Business Needs

In addition to our work with U.S. clients, we provide legal services to foreign businesses and serve as local counsel to foreign attorneys in areas related to trademarks and branding, copyrights, contractual matters, and litigation. We have over 35 years of experience representing clients from all over the world in a wide variety of industries, including fashion, software, technology, exercise modalities, music (recording and publishing), book publishing, cosmeceuticals, and nutriceuticals. Among other achievements, our firm is known for putting the word “Pilates” in the public domain, making it free to use for all Pilates instructors and businesses. One of our current litigations, also related to Pilates, was the subject of an article in the New York Times on October 20, 2022.

For more than 35 years, we have provided domestic representation in the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for foreign rightholders, law firms, associates, and agents. If you are a foreign rightsholder and want to file new trademark applications, or if you are in need of U.S. domestic representation for existing trademark applications or registrations, you’ve come to the right place. We provide a full range of services, including new filings, intent-to-use applications, Office Action Responses (including Madrid Protocol), trademark maintenance and renewals, recordation of title changes, opposition and cancellation actions, coexistence agreements, consents to register, and monitoring potential infringements. As many of our clients have discovered, successfully registering trademarks very often involves complex strategies that cut-rate registration services simply do not and cannot provide.

    Feedback From Our Clients

    Timothy Kelly

    Gordon and Lawrence were recommended by a old friend and college. They were very professional and timely and brought me some calmness to a stressful situation. The outcome they negotiated was better then I thought it could be. I highly recommend calling them before calling anyone else. They are the best!

    Mindy Sommers

    Gordon is not only a wonderful, brilliant attorney, but a man who cares deeply about his clients. I can’t say enough about his masterful guidance and knowledge.
