There are a number of ways to do this, but without the right strategy in place, enforcement efforts can quickly become costly and threaten reputation. WTR’s inaugural Brand Enforcement USA (San Francisco, October 5) will bring together trademark and brand leaders as well as their outside counsel to discuss cutting-edge strategies to improve success in enforcement.
