Three Steps We've Used to Register 4,000 Trademarks
Step 1: Comprehensive Trademark Search

Once you complete our engagement form, we will conduct a comprehensive federal, state and common law trademark search. Our search of federal and state trademark databases is done utilizing software provided by Corsearch. This is an industry leading trademark search software used by the largest law firms in the world. Our search works to identify any potential issue with your desired trademark prior to making a trademark filing.

Step 2: Trademark Attorney Consultation

Within 7-10 days of commencing work, we will return the trademark search results for your review. You can then set up a time to talk to one of our attorneys about the search results and any other questions you have about the trademark registration process. In the event that our search uncovers a problem, we offer a complimentary second search on a different trademark.

Step 3: Trademark Application Filed

Our experienced trademark attorneys will prepare your trademark application for your review and approval. Having drafted and successfully registered over 4,000 trademarks since 2008, our attorneys understand the intricacies of a US trademark application and will ensure your application is drafted to give you the best chance of approval possible.

What is an Office Action?

Once the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) receives a trademark application, the application is thoroughly reviewed by an experienced trademark-examining attorney. If the examining attorney finds that the mark is too similar to an already-applied for mark, finds the need to issue a substantive refusal for registration (such as the mark is generic or descriptive), or finds a technical error in the application, he or she will issue an Office Action.

Office Actions should be taken very seriously. Every Office Action the USPTO issues requires a response within six months time, otherwise the application associated with the Office Action will be abandoned.

Gerben Law Firm Offers Years of Experience with Office Actions

Gerben Law Firm works with the USPTO on a daily basis, therefore, we have the know-how and ability to help resolve the issues associated with your Office Action.

Our fast and effective services put clients who hire us to handle their Office Actions at a major advantage. Office Actions that are not addressed within six months are considered abandoned by the USPTO and are eliminated from government files. Applicants who miss the six-month deadline unfortunately must begin the process from scratch. As an Office Action attorney, Josh Gerben recognizes the time sensitivity of responding to Office Actions and works to ensure every Office Action is resolved as soon as possible.

Taking the burden upon yourself to respond to an Office Ation may further complicate the issue or prolong the application process. For every incorrect response you submit, the application process is delayed. We can help you make sure each Office Action issue is fully addressed to increase your chances of overcoming an Office Action.

Gerben Law Firm Has a Proven Track Record with Office Actions – at Reasonable Rates

In order to best serve your needs, we will first need to review your case and then we will discuss with you the best approach to take. If you submit your information on the quote form, we will review your Office Action at no charge and provide a flat rate quote to complete a response on your behalf.
