In today’s competitive environment where the quality and price playing fields are increasingly level, trademarks are often the only way consumers differentiate one company from another.  Consequently, trademarks play a critical role in driving new and repeat business.   

Paul Kruse helps clients of all kinds protect their trademarks with high quality, creative and comprehensive services including trademark clearance, registration and policing – all at a predictable cost.  Paul has created the CoreFour Trademark Vigilance Program for small business owners, entrepreneurs, musicians and artists.  Paul also helps clients advance their interests in trademark litigations, arbitrations and mediations.   

Paul has more than 20 years of experience in trademarks.  While working at the United States Patent and Trademark Office early in his career, Paul examined over 4,400 trademark applications and has prosecuted countless applications to registration as a private attorney since.
