Nic SchaeferTrademark/Copyright, Cannabis, Craft Beverage, Fashion Lawyer
- Trademarks, Intellectual Property, Business Law ...
Hi! I'm Nic. I'm the lead attorney at Yellow Dog Legal, a virtual firm offering boutique trademark services without the boutique prices. I am the go-to expert for local entrepreneurs seeking information and help with all of their trademark needs. I love doing trademarks and helping my clients protect their businesses and brands.
I graduated from Lewis and Clark Law School with Certificates in Animal Law and Criminal Law and Procedure. I still practice Animal Law, as I am deeply passionate about animals, but I also love trademarks and everything having to do with them!
In my spare time, I enjoy watercolor painting (and actually send my clients a hand-painted card with their Trademark Certificates), exercising, watching movies ( especially scary ones), trying out ciders around Portland, and playing with my three dogs and my three cats.
You can check out my website at yellowdoglegal.com and my website devoted to those in the cider industry at theciderlawyer.com.
I can't wait to help you with your intellectual property and business needs!

- Q. How do you trademark a name for a start up company
- A: Hi! The best way to do this would be to meet with an attorney. You'll have to show use of the mark in commerce, which can be difficult with a startup.
- Q. My business name has been trademarked by someone else. I sell clothing, they are a record brand. Can I keep my bus. name
- A: Hi! I understand your apprehension! Your best bet would be to meet with an attorney and have a comprehensive search done. It may turn out that you are fine even if the same name has already been trademarked due to various factors such as category they are trademarked in, etc. But don't give up just yet. :)
- Q. Is this trademark still valid ?
- A: What trademark are you referring to? My suggestion is to speak to an attorney and have a search done. Good luck!
