The Yau Law Firm
Focused on Protecting Businesses and Representing the Injured

Areas of Practice


The Yau Law Firm is also uniquely qualified to protect Intellectual Property.  Patents protect new and useful inventions.  Trademark registration is for names, logos, slogans, and other unique features that consumers use to identify a business.  Copyright registration prevents infringement and misappropriation of creative works, such as books, music, lyrics, poetry, photos, scripts, paintings, and sculptures.

We take your intellectual property further than simply securing patent, trademark, or copyright registration.  The Yau Law Firm helps inventors, businesses, and creators take their work to the next step.  This can involve Confidentiality/Non-Disclosure Agreements, License Agreements, and Non-Compete Contracts.  Furthermore, we can prepare or respond to Cease & Desist letters.


Businesses with a unique NAME, LOGO, or SLOGAN need to protect these trademarks. The Yau Law Firm offers a wide range of trademark-related services, including:

  • Trademark search.
  • Preparing and filing the trademark application.
  • Responding to Office Actions.
  • Drafting, evaluating, or negotiating licenses.
  • Cease & Desist letters.

Trademark registration not only protects against infringement, but also grants the trademark owner the leverage to grow the business by licensing the trademark rights.
