Attorneys

A number of Cislo & Thomas LLP's attorneys have substantial experience in handling appeals from litigation matters in the federal courts, as well as appeals of matters in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, reconsiderations of refusals to register in the U.S. Copyright Office, opposition and cancellation proceedings in the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board,  and ex parte and inter partes reexaminations of patents in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. 

Cislo & Thomas LLP has also been involved in a substantial amount of litigation throughout the United States concerning a wide variety of patent, trademark, and copyright issues.  Cislo & Thomas LLP has successfully enforced many patents, trademarks, and copyrights, and have obtained favorable results for clients who have been accused of infringing the intellectual property rights of others.  Because we have represented both plaintiffs and defendants in intellectual property cases, we have a unique insight into the challenging issues that an adversary can raise during litigation.

Because of the breadth of our experience handling proceedings in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the U.S. Copyright Office, and in the federal court system, we have a thorough understanding of the issues that can be raised on appeal in a variety of contexts.  Thus, we are uniquely suited to represent individuals or companies in virtually any type of appeal involving intellectual property rights.
