“Trademarks are the face of a company and critically important to businesses,” said Fraser. "We look forward to continuing to identify areas of concern to our clients and empowering Dykema attorneys and staff to help our clients strengthen trademark portfolios and address challenges. We are well-positioned to help our clients with that mission.”
