What We Do

Sanvenero & Cittadino has successfully represented clients' interests before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the U.S. Copyright Office, the Federal District and Appellate Courts. It also represents client interests in Arbitrations, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).

We educate our clients so they can better assist us in identifying their intellectual property rights (trademarks, trade secrets, patents and know how) and work with each client closely to protect these rights.
