LAW & ARTICLES FOR THE CARIBBEAN DIASPORA

HISTORY, TRADEMARKS, & CONTRACTS 
for the Caribbean and the Caribbean Diaspora

LEARN &
PROTECT

Know where you came from so you can know how valuable you are.

Learn from history to help ensure that your Caribbean business is legally protected with (1) business formations like LLCs, (2) trademark registrations, and (3) contracts.

WEEKLY HISTORY ARTICLES
 

Our focus is mainly Trinidad, Guyana, India, and the United States. We welcome article submissions regarding the history of any and all Caribbean nations.

TRADEMARK REGISTRATION
 

We strongly advocate for trademark registration. A trademark is a brand identifier like a company name, logo, slogan, or design.

 

Registering a trademark with the USPTO has many benefits including preventing others from using a similar mark, increasing a company's valuation, and reducing legal fees and the risk of lawsuits.

CONTRACT TEMPLATES
 

After you form your LLC and apply for a trademark, make sure that all your business dealings are put into a contract.
