At Gerben Law Firm we offer just one trademark registration service because we do not believe in doing “partial” searches. Our belief is that only by conducting a comprehensive federal, state, and common law search can we truly minimize the likelihood that our clients will face a trademark infringement lawsuit down the road. Moreover, we believe that it is essential for a trademark attorney to be integrally involved in the trademark search process.
There are too many on-line trademark services that offer searches without the proper review from a team of trademark attorneys. We ensure that our firm’s experienced attorneys will review the search results and provide an opinion regarding the likelihood of success of the trademark application.
Trademark law in the United States is complicated due to the multiple layers of possible rights an owner may have in a trademark. Successfully registering a trademark at the federal level, for instance, may not ensure that you own all of the rights to the trademark. In the U.S., a trademark may be registered not only at the federal level but also within any of the 50 state governments.
With all of this in mind, we, as experienced trademark attorneys, will leave no stone unturned when conducting your trademark search. This will provide you with as much assurance as possible that no one else owns the rights to your proposed trademark. We search the U.S. Government’s federal trademark database, databases in all 50 states, and common law databases as part of our flat fee trademark registration service.
To further ensure the accuracy and completeness of your trademark application, we will hand-draft and file your trademark application. As discussed above, there are simply too many companies who claim they can file a trademark application without the assistance of a trademark attorney. A trademark application is a complicated legal document. If the application is not completed properly, the USPTO may refuse the application, or, a third party may later challenge the validity of the trademark registration. From search to approval our firm believes in giving each client the individual attention necessary during each phase of the application process to ensure the success of your trademark registration.
