Trademark Attorney Josh Gerben is Here to Help.
If you are attempting to register a trademark, it is highly recommended that you engage a trademark attorney to help you through the process. This is because everything from the trademark search through the registration of a trademark is more complicated then it appears. While the internet makes it easy to try to do it on your own, investing in the advice of an attorney can save you potentially tens of thousands of dollars in the long run.
Trademark applications seem simple at first because the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) provides online forms that anyone can complete. However, just because anyone can complete the form doesn't mean that anyone can complete it correctly. For every trademark application, the USPTO has its own trademark attorneys who will scrutinize the application. If the agency's attorney finds flaws or errors, the USPTO will deny the application. Some errors may requir
completely refiling the trademark application.
At Gerben Law Firm, trademark attorney Josh Gerben is available to lead you through the trademark application process. As an experienced trademark registration attorney he can save you additional costs in the future and help ensure the process is as easy as possible. As a business owner, you want to ensure that you can protect the value in your trademark. If someone down the street opens up a company with nearly an identical name, you need to know that you can challenge that affront to your business. Gerben Law Firm, PLLC can help empower you to increase the value of your business.
Besides the extensive research process, Josh Gerben understands the legal ramifications of the information going into the trademark application. Therefore, your trademark application will be drafted to ensure your rights on your trademark are as broad as possible. In addition, if USPTO has questions or issues a rejection, Josh Gerben can represent your interests as your trademark lawyer. Gerben Law Firm can reply to the USPTO's Office Action with a legal argument that applies results from the research process to persuade the USPTO's trademark attorneys that your application deserves approval.
If USPTO does not approve the application after reviewing your Office Action response, you'll receive a notice from the US Government's trademark lawyer. If this occurs you have the opportunity to appeal the denial to the USPTO's Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. As a trademark registration attorney, Josh Gerben can help you continue the effort to protect your name. USPTO allows applicants to file an appeal. To do so, you must extend the legal argument in your Office Action response and attempt to convince agency officials that your argument is stronger than USPTO's trademark attorney. That is a significant burden for most business owners. If you have come this far, you need to make sure you have a trademark lawyer on your side who can present the best possible argument. Gerben Law Firm's trademark lawyers are also capable of representing you with the trademark trial and appeals board should you need it.
Having a trademark registration attorney on your side can save money in future legal costs. But it's even better to have a lawyer that understands your interests while also possessing the expertise to handle all USPTO-related issues.
