Trademarks - Attorney Services
We help you climb the mountain to Trademark Registration
We like the complex stuff - researching and arguing case law, and making arguments to overcome objections and oppositions. With a focus in this field, we bring our expertise to all areas of trademark law. Yes, we file trademarks in the US and around the world, and we keep in mind the objections that you may face, and mitigate them before the filing. We also streamline the filing so your application registers as soon as possible. We work hard to provide professional services at affordable prices, every day.
Trademark Office Actions - After a trademark is filed, the Examiner picks up the file within 3 - 5 months and review it. If there is an issue, then the Examiner will issue an office action, for which you have 6 months to respond. We recommend responding as soon as possible, since by delaying, you are delaying your application.
The objection may be some housekeeping like the mark description, or restatement of the goods and services. More problematic objections are 2(d) likelihood of confusion with another mark already in the Register, or 2(e) descriptive of a characteristic of the goods and services with which the mark is associated. Both of these objections require legal argument, and we can help you overcome them. Ask us for a free assessment of your chances.
Trademark Oppositions - after the mark is approved by the USPTO, it is published. The first 30 days of publication is the opposition window - where competitors can oppose the registration of a mark by filing an opposition, and starting a mini-trial to see if the mark can be registered. We can help either by filing the opposition, or by filing the defense. Don't give up on your mark once an opposition is raised, it's better to see it through to a decision. The opposition process also gives many occasions for a negotiated settlement. We will provide you with a free assessment of your chances in an opposition, talk to us today!
