Background: Spritzal Cookie Company, LLC is a small-scale cookie company located in Norwell, MA using the original spritz cookie recipe of the owner’s great grandmother. Relying on only five ingredients, including three locally-sourced ingredients, the cookies are sold at local farmers’ markets and through some wholesale, but the company was looking to expand the business due to its success.
Legal Need: When the Spritzal Cookie Company decided to move into a new commercial kitchen space, they knew it was a good idea to consult with an attorney to discuss protecting the company name, logo, and recipes.
The Relationship: The Legal Food Hub matched Spritzal Cookie Company, with a lawyer from Boston-based Wolf Greenfield, which specializes in Intellectual Property. The attorney was able to perform a trademark search and file for the company’s trademark. The firm also created a non-disclosure agreement for the company to use when it moved to the shared kitchen space.
