Our Trademark Application Process:
Simplicity and Efficiency

1. Initial Information

If you are not a client currently, the easiest way for you to start is to fill out our online form. Certain fields in the form are mandatory, and the form provides explanation and guidance in that regard.

If you are not entirely sure about some of the information requested by the form, do not worry. Just do your best and submit the form. We will then work with you to resolve any issues or concerns you may have.

2. New Application

We will review your submission and will draft a formal trademark application. If we have any questions or concerns regarding your mark, we will contact you for clarification.

Once the application has been finalized and approved by you, we will file it with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and will represent you during the USPTO's examination process.

3. Status Monitoring

We will monitor your trademark application while it is pending and will keep you updated about any developments.

As our client, you will have access to our proprietary online automated portfolio management system, where you will be able to see the status of your application, as well as all updates, alerts, deadlines, attorney's comments and other information relevant to your trademark portfolio.

4. New Registration

As soon as your trademark application has matured to registration, we will send you a report.

Once we have received the certificate of registration for your trademark, we will forward the original to you. We will also send you a letter, which will provide full registration details and will explain maintenance, renewal and other important requirements concerning your new registration.

Trademark Clearance Search

Before adopting a trademark, one must ensure that the mark is legally available and that no one claims earlier rights to the same (or confusingly similar) mark. The process of trademark clearance is intended to determine whether there are any such earlier rights and if the mark is safe to adopt and use. The importance of a trademark clearance search cannot be emphasized enough. Do not take the risk of using a trademark that was not properly cleared. Hire a qualified trademark attorney to do the search for you.

Global Portfolio Management

Trademarks are territorial in nature. The same mark can be owned by different companies depending on the country. Which is why international companies often proceed with registration in multiple jurisdictions as soon as a new trademark is conceived, even if they are not yet using the new mark in all of the countries. Properly orchestrating an international filing campaign and managing the portfolio requires an experienced trademark attorney with a specific skill set. Trust your portfolio to professionals.

IP Due Diligence

Purchasing a trademark portfolio can be a great investment. Before closing the deal, however, it is absolutely essential to investigate each trademark's validity, as well ownership chain and other criteria. We offer many years of experience conducting Intellectual Property Due Diligence for Fortune 500 corporations, start-up companies and individual investors.

Statement of Use

In the U.S., trademark rights derive from using a mark in commerce. If a trademark was not yet used in commerce at the time its owner filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), then a Statement of Use will have to be filed with the USPTO once the owner starts using the mark in "interstate commerce."

The rules concerning the Statement of Use and use in interstate commerce are somewhat complex, and there can be quite a few stumbling blocks in the process of proving use to the USPTO. At the same time, providing false or inaccurate information to the USPTO can jeopardize the validity of a trademark application or resulting registration. We can identify and preempt problems related to the Statement of Use so that your trademark rights are duly protected.

Avoid pitfalls and let professionals file your Statement of Use.

Response to Office Actions

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) examines each new trademark application. When the USPTO has any questions or concerns, it will issue an Office Action. There are many potential issues that can be raised in an Office Action, and, in the worst case scenario, the Trademark Office will issue a substantive refusal, denying registration.

There are several legal grounds that the USPTO can use to refuse registration (such as descriptiveness, likelihood of confusion, scandalous matter, etc.), but the applicant will get a chance to submit a response. If the response properly resolves the USPTO's concerns, the refusal will be withdrawn.

Trademark Registration Renewal

Federal trademark registration must be renewed in 10-year increments in order to remain active. There is also an additional one-time maintenance requirement (Declaration of Use) between the 5th and 6th year of registration. Failure to maintain or renew a registration will result in its cancellation.

Renew your registration timely. Contact us.
