Trademark Paralegal Jobs

Trademark paralegals are responsible for the administrative and support tasks associated with trademark application and litigation. Trademark law is an absolutely vital service in the 21st century. This is the information age, and although real property, such as currency and real estate, can be physically protected, intellectual property is vulnerable to misappropriation. Ideas, words, and images cannot be protected by vaults or banks, and so must be protected by the law. A trademark paralegal defends his client’s best ideas from inappropriate use, working at all times to protect the originator’s best interest.
