We can help you obtain a federally registered trademark for your business.  By registering a trademark that uniquely identifies your business, you can prevent competitors from using a similar brand and enjoy the benefits of exclusive rights to the trademark in the United States.  Suppose someone else begins to use a confusingly similar mark. In that case, you could find yourself in a fight without a registered trademark. Registering a trademark helps prevent confusion and strengthens your position in a trademark infringement action.  The earlier you register, the better your trademarks will be protected from those who might try to copy you.

Trademark Registration Process

Click on each step to learn about the trademark registration process.

For new clients, the first step in the trademark process is to schedule an initial consultation.  

During the trademark consultation we will discuss:

  1. The types of trademark applications and the requirements for filing and obtaining a trademark registration;
  2. The strengths and weaknesses of your proposed trademark;
  3. Whether there are any obvious obstacles to registration after conducting a quick search of trademarks already registered on the USPTO website; and
  4. Recommendations for moving forward with your proposed trademark.

 

If you are a new small business, the initial consultation will provide you with information to help you develop a strong brand strategy.

 

You can schedule a consultation by filling out this form and paying a $195 consultation fee (the consultation fee is applied to the total cost of a trademark filing).

After your consultation, we will conduct a Basic Trademark Search:  using various search tools including the USPTO website and currently, we also use search programs through CompMark. 

We will review Federal and State trademark registrations and look for other common law uses as well.  

We conduct a basic trademark search before filing any trademark application.  

You may also decide to order a more comprehensive Third-Party Comprehensive Search.  The fees for a third party search vary depending on the depth and analysis required.  If a third-party search is required for your business, we will provide a quote during our initial consultation.  

We will review with you the results of your trademark search.  We will review any potential conflicts or issues that may arise when filing for your trademark application.  We may discuss brand strategies and other options for moving forward.  If you have any other questions relating to your trademark application or the trademark process we will answer them before moving forward.  

If you decide not to move forward with the trademark application after we conduct our trademark search, we will refund you $495. 

We will work with you to put together the appropriate materials for your trademark application.  We will review your website, marketing, and product packaging for any potential issues and to find an appropriate specimen to submit with your trademark application.  We will also review how best to describe your goods or services to avoid any objections from the USPTO.
