Brands, patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets are critical assets to any business, especially in the nascent cannabis industry. Vicente Sederberg LLP helps marijuana and hemp entrepreneurs obtain and protect their intellectual property with a variety of customizable services.
Our IP team has extensive experience in the field, and we maintain a strategic relationship with counsel who previously worked as an examiner with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. They were drawn to VS because of its role as a leader on cannabis law and policy, as well as our entrepreneurial spirt and authentic passion for the cannabis industry.
VS has spent years working with cannabis and hemp brands, assisting with business strategy, agreement drafting and review, and trademark clearance and registration at both the state and federal levels. We have filed and registered dozens of federal and state trademark applications for cannabis, hemp, and CBD businesses, as well as writing and lecturing about the topics. We also actively monitor the latest cannabis regulatory and policy changes and their applications to trademark, copyright and other intellectual property protection strategies to ensure our clients maintain their position on the leading edge of this quickly evolving industry.
