What are the benefits of trademark registration?
A trademark registration forms the foundation for a successful brand. We have written a blog post that provides insight into the benefits of registering a trademark.
How does your trademark registration process work?
We have completely streamlined the process of working with an attorney. We have developed proprietary systems that allow you to easily and effectively work with our trademark attorneys from anywhere in the world.
We start by sending you a series of questions about your business and brand. Then we take that information and use it to conduct our trademark search and to prepare your application for filing. During this process, you will be invited to schedule as many consultations as you need to make sure that we give you what you need and that you understand how trademark registration can help your business.
What are some reasons that my trademark would not be registered?
There are a number of reasons why your trademark would not be registered. When we work with you to register your trademark, we help you identify and fix those issues before they become problems down the road.
Should I just use LegalZoom to register my trademark?
LegalZoom is cheap, but it may not be the right choice for anyone serious about developing a brand. We have had many people come to us after having a bad experience with LegalZoom and needing help sorting out a mess that could have been avoided by engaging a trademark attorney in the first place.
Additionally, while a number of online services may offer a low introductory price, these same services charge a number of hidden fees during the process. As with anything that sounds too good to be true, it pays to read the fine print.
We charge a single, transparent flat-fee for our trademark clearance and registration services. With no hidden costs.
How long does my trademark registration last?
Barring any problems, your trademark registration generally lasts as long as you are using it and properly maintain it. You will have to file documents every five and ten years to let the trademark office know you are still using it, but if you do that your mark will stay alive.
How long does it take for a trademark to get registered?
Generally, it will take 6-9 months from the filing date for a trademark to move all the way through to registration. However, do keep in mind that in many cases the filing date is important; if somebody tries to file the same or similar trademark after your filing date, the trademark office will likely prevent them from getting a registration.
Do I need to do a trademark search?
A trademark search is highly recommended and is a key part of getting your trademark registration right. And while a quick search of Google or the trademark database can identify obvious problems, it will not identify every mark that could prevent your trademark from being registered. We are happy to help you understand whether a trademark search would be right for you.
Can I still file a trademark application if I have not yet used my trademark?
If you haven’t begun to use your trademark yet, you can file what is called an “intent to use” trademark application. This blog post will give you more insight about how an intent to use trademark application works.
What about international trademark registration?
By default, trademarks are only registered in the United States. However, you might want to consider extending your trademark to other countries if you plan to do business abroad. Read more about what that involves.
