Watson & Young Law firm specializes in Trademark Registration and Intellectual Property. The attorneys there are extremely knowledgeable and very professional.

He gave a clear step by step path on how he and his firm will proceed and support me throughout the process. I highly recommend this firm to handle all of your trademark registration needs.
I am very grateful & privileged to witness the evolution of Watson & Young. Sean was the first attorney I met during the Entrepreneur Expo at the Brooklyn Business Library upon starting my agency V Management New York, LLC. in 2014 while he was a student at Brooklyn Law. Years later, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Zara in 2020 who gave me the experience of a lifetime with registering the trademark for my agency name. From start to finish, Zara and her team were very thorough and communicative with the whole process. I remember being at Dumbo Park & receiving the 1st memo from her that my agency name was available to trademark for a specific class. I had so much joy in my heart & relief because other attorneys told me the name wasn't available. Once the trademark process was finally completed in 2021, I remember I cried upon receiving their beautiful trademark package delivered to me that included my official registered document. To witness the first attorney I spoke with upon starting my agency and the attorney who completed my first trademark for my agency join forces is a true testament to the power of the Universe and love. Much gratitude once again for Watson & Young PLLC and I look forward to seeing many more years of success!
If you were looking for a trademark attorney/lawyer for trademark registration or any of your trademark needs, call Watson and Young law firm, they are the best!!!They take the time to walk through the process with you and answer all your questions.

I worked with Zara and Sean to trademark my new business. I also purchased an employee onboarding contract a few years prior. They were very communicative throughout the process. I'm so glad I found them. I will diffidently be reaching out for future projects!
I had the pleasure of hosting Zara to speak to my community about building a robust brand and personal styling business recently, and it's an understatement to say she was a hit. Zara's unique blend of legal expertise in the fashion and beauty industry is a rare and substantial asset for business owners in those domains.

I eagerly anticipate Zara's future engagements with my community, and I wholeheartedly recommend working with her.

Watson & Young made it so easy and it remains one of my best business decisions!
Zara did a fireside chat with our beauty brand founders and was able to support and guide them in a number of areas of their businesses including copyright law, trademarking, international distribution and more. Her depth of knowledge and specialization in the beauty and fashion space allowed her to be hyper tailored with her advice. There are very specific aspects and nuances in beauty and fashion law and Zara and her team have expertise and authority in this space unlike anyone else. I look forward to continuing to work with Zara both inside our programs and with our clients.

I want to say thank you for your love and support! I love you and your beautiful family! Big thank you to the Watson & Young PLLC !
I have worked with Zara and the rest of the Watson & Young team since 2021, and have always felt supported.

They super responsive, friendly, very professional and wonderful to work with. I am so grateful I know them and have them in my corner!

“Zara and the whole team from day one were so helpful. My favorite aspect of working with them (outside of OFFICIALLY getting Trademarked!!!) was the clarity and communication they always sent. Often I would put on my to do list: check in with Zara, and literally that day I would get an email update or calendar invite without even reaching out.

The time and money I actually saved by using them was great. If you are on the fence about signing on, don’t hesitate. I am a do it myself kind of person and I am so glad I let them handle our trademark. They were and are continuing to be a great partner to have with my company Cake Muse.”

“I can’t express enough gratitude for Zara & Sean and their incredible support during a deeply emotional and challenging litigation. Upon moving to NYC several years ago, I was faced with legal issues with someone I considered a close friend…it was incredibly tough. From the moment I engaged in their counsel, a massive weight was lifted off my shoulders. I felt reassured and confident for the first time regarding the issue. Watson & Young are sharks and for real…THEY ARE WHO YOU WANT ON YOUR SIDE. They *fiercely* advocate for their clients. When my friend’s attorney resorted to bullying tactics, Watson & Young’s straightforward advice was a game-changer. They advised halting unnecessary back-and-forth, recognizing the lack of a legitimate case. Their honesty saved me from unnecessary expenses and they instilled confidence in me to stand up for myself. The peace of mind they brought during such a turbulent time…I just can’t say enough kind things about them. 

I also worked with them for a trademark process (which was a pain point from a prior trademark experience I had with a different, cheap, crappy attorney). Unlike the past, they demonstrated a profound understanding, steered the process smoothly, and my trademark was approved with no issues.

All in all…Watson & Young’s expertise and care have solidified my trust, I am SO incredibly grateful for them, and they are without a doubt the only attorneys I’ll ever turn to, and I recommend them whole-heartedly. They not only resolved my legal challenges but also provided invaluable support with my mental well-being during an extremely difficult time. Seriously – 100/10.  

They truly are the best of the best, experts at what they do, and you can feel the care they pour into their work & their clients. Basically…stop looking around and HIRE THEM.”

– Natalie Martensen, Founder of VibeHaus


“From consultation to filing and receiving our results, Watson & Young made the entire process seamless.

The team was proactive in their communication, keeping us informed at every turn. They were professional, enthusiastic, patient, and knowledgeable. Watson & Young removed the guess work and provided us with service that left us feeling empowered. We couldn’t have asked for a better team to guide us through this tedious process. Without Watson & Young, we couldn’t have successfully filed our trademark. There aren’t enough words to describe Watson & Young’s outstanding work, and we’d recommend them to all entrepreneurs looking to trademark their brands!”

“When I was doing preliminary research on my potential trademark and found someone that was using my information it was very overwhelming. After I decided to go forward with a cease and desist, Zara and her husband made the process so easy for me. They truly are MASTERS at trademark law, I was so glad that they were representing me. The process was seamless and simple on my end. They did such an amazing job, that the other party removed their trademark without us having to go further then the official cease and desist. I cannot recommend them enough, they made a very stressful situation much less stressful.”

“I can honestly say that there is no way I could have done it successfully without Zara. She is not only thorough, organized, and extremely knowledgeable about every in and out of trademark law, but she is deeply supportive, thoughtful, and compassionate. If things were difficult on her end, I would never know it, because Zara and her team made me feel like my trademark process was the only thing they were working on. Never perturbed by a question and always available when I needed her, it is clear to me that Zara does her absolute best for every client. Plus, she was incredibly transparent about the cost, timeline, and logistics of the process. Kindness + Honesty + Skills = the perfect Trademark Attorney. Honestly, I cannot recommend Watson & Young enough. Thank you Zara!”
