LAW & ARTICLES FOR THE CARIBBEAN DIASPORA
HISTORY, TRADEMARKS, & CONTRACTS
for the Caribbean and the Caribbean Diaspora
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.
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.
After you form your LLC and apply for a trademark, make sure that all your business dealings are put into a contract.
