Our mission to spread the word about trademark protection - and how important and valuable it is for small businesses - never stops. Speaking, videos, podcasts, blog posts, and now.... content in Spanish. EMP&A is very pleased to announce that we now have pages on our website in Spanish - and we will be expanding with more content and videos en español soon.

We are committed to service and supporting local organizations, like Food Justice DMV, a volunteer collective supporting the needs of immigrant neighbors. Last month we helped organize and move bags of vegetables and groceries for delivery to local families in need.
