Gerben Law Firm works extensively with international clients and their foreign counsel to assist with the filing of trademark applications in the United States (we serve as a local counsel in the United States in this capacity). Clients (and their attorneys) from over 30 countries have used Gerben Law Firm’s local counsel trademark services to apply for a trademark in the United States. One of the top questions we receive from foreign counsel is:
“What does my client need to provide to get the process started?”
As a part of our trademark service we like to get to know clients, their business models, and their unique circumstances. With that said, there are a few basic items that can help speed the process up. Below is a short checklist of common items that our attorneys need in order to effectively file a trademark application on behalf of a client located outside the United States.
