Other uses require our written permission. If you are in doubt as to whether you need our permission for a specific type of use, please ask us.

- In a manner likely to cause confusion;
- In a manner that implies inaccurately that we sponsor or endorse, or are otherwise connected with, your own activities, products and services; or
As hidden or embedded text in web pages in an effort to cause a search of Athena Law Group marks to result in a hit on a page not maintained by Athena Law Group in a manner disparaging of Athena Law Group
