The McCarthy Institute Overview
The McCarthy Institute bears the name of its founder, Thomas McCarthy, author of the preeminent treatise McCarthy on Trademarks and Unfair Competition. The Institute consists of a growing community of Intellectual Property (IP) Law and branding professionals focused on the latest developments in trademark law, the technologies powering brand development, and the consumer behaviors that make up brand perception.
