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,
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.
