Protecting your trademark can really pay dividends. Not only is it a valuable property asset, but it’s also your brand, your reputation. The reputation you have established is associated with these different brand elements - your name, logo, and tagline - and the reason why people buy from you. It’s important to take steps to protect these company assets. Our partnered attorneys will do the research to make sure the mark isn't already taken, ensure the filing gets accepted by the government office, and provide sound legal advice throughout the entire process.
Tell us what you need. A trademark attorney will follow up with you to get a better understanding of your needs and provide guidance on how the process works.
The trademark attorney will conduct a trademark search to ensure the availability, then provide the search results along with a plan of action.
The attorney will file the trademark with the US Patent and Trademark office and deliver the approved trademark documentation.
This includes filing the trademark in one series and one class. Additional legal fees and filing fees will apply if you decide to file a trademark in more than one class."
Trademark approval times can vary based on demand but generally fall in the window of 3-4 months. Despite the delayed approval time, you will be able to monitor the status of the trademark online as it's going through the approval process.
The trademark will be filed within 3 business days upon receiving the desired trademark and performing a search. If it's determined after the search that the name has a low likelihood for approval, you can request a refund before the application is filed.
Once you have submitted your business name or logo, an attorney will conduct the initial search and discuss the results via email or phone. The attorney will then prepare the filing application and submit to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. You will be able to track the approval status and contact us with any questions you may have while awaiting for the approval.
