In today’s competitive environment where the quality and price playing fields are increasingly level, trademarks are often the only way consumers differentiate one company from another. Consequently, trademarks play a critical role in driving new and repeat business. Paul Kruse helps clients of all kinds protect their trademarks with high quality, creative, and comprehensive services, including trademark clearance, registration and policing – all at a predictable cost. Paul has created the CoreFour Trademark Vigilance Program for small business owners, entrepreneurs, musicians, and artists. In addition to trademark prosecution, enforcement and litigation support, Paul handles copyright, right of publicity and domain name matters that touch on trademark law.
