Trademark Process

5 Easy Steps
  1. Choose a qualified U.S. trademark attorney
  2. Start your trademark application (this website starts this process with our preliminary trademark application)
  3. Wait for great communication from your selected U.S. Trademark Attorney
  4. Protect your business name and/or logo.
  5. Create a trademark portfolio for your brand.

Each U.S. trademark is unique to each individual company. Your objective is to protect your company and/or brand so that no other company can take advantage of your hard work in creating your business. A trademark is a source-identifier. This basically means, where do the goods and/or services that you make and/or offer come from? You want your consumer to distinguish between you and your competitor so that you can make the money and not someone else. A trademark can accomplish this goal.

Trademark Registration Process

  • First, choose a qualified U.S. trademark attorney.
  • Second, start your preliminary trademark application.  Tell us the mark and the goods/services to protect. If you are currently utilizing the mark, one of our attorneys will help you show the USPTO how you’re using the mark in commerce. This pre-filing application provides important information for the official trademark application. Please note that the assigned attorney may require additional information to complete the official U.S.P.T.O application.
  • Third, a qualified U.S. trademark attorney will contact you. The attorney will speak with you to understand your needs and to complete your application. For instance, if you are planning to use the mark, our qualified U.S. attorneys will explain what specimens (demonstration of how you’re using the mark in commerce) are acceptable. If you choose, the attorney may complete a trademark search on your behalf. Further, this will be the time where a fee for filing the trademark application will be required (fees range from $225-$400 for each applied for class). Please note that a filing fee is required by the U.S.P.T.O and the attorney will charge their own fee for their expert trademark advice (please review fees before selecting a qualified attorney). 
  • The trademark attorney will do the hard work and assist you through the process of obtaining your trademark. Some U.S. trademark applications may move forward to the first phase of the trademark process, which is publication, without any issue. Some trademark applications may receive an office action. Please note that this latter process may be costly. An expert U.S. trademark attorney can advise you accordingly.
  • Please note the U.S.P.T.O generally reviews an incoming trademark application within three (3) months. If there are no intervening issues, and you are currently using your mark, please expect a trademark within six-nine (6-9) months.
  • Companies who are not currently using their marks in commerce may have to utilize important strategy to match their business goals/objectives and desires. Intent to use applicants will be required to provide a statement of use later in the trademark application process. This strategy should be orchestrated by your qualified trademark attorney.

What is trademark or service mark?

A trademark is generally a word, phrase, symbol, or design, combination thereof, that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. This just means that the goods/services come from you or your business. A service mark is the same as a trademark, except that identifies and distinguishes the source of the services instead of the goods. Throughout this website, the terms “trademark” and “mark” refer to both trademarks and service marks.

Do Trademarks, Copyrights, and Patents Protect The Same Matter?

No, trademarks, copyrights, and patents are distinct and each protect different types of Intellectual Property. A trademark typically protects brand names and logos used on goods and services. A copyright protects an original artistic or literary work. A patent protects an invention. For example, if you invent a new kind of toothbrush, you would apply for a patent to protect the invention itself and you might register a copyright for the advertisement you use to market the product, and a trademark to protect the brand name of the toothbrush.
