Welcome to Gerben IP

We have been assisting entrepreneurs, established businesses and other lawyers with trademarks since 2008. We are proud to that our firm’s representation has resulted in the successful registration of more than 6,500 trademarks with the USPTO.

Three Steps We’ve Used to Register 6,500+ 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 6,500 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.

Trademark Lawyer

Trademark Lawyers are Integral to the Trademark Registration ProcessTrademark lawyers exist to ensure that your trademark investment is properly protected.  While there are many Web sites that claim to make the trademark registration process easy, there are extremely complicated legal issues that go into any trademark search and application.  Not hiring a trademark lawyer could result in the denial of your application and/or your infringement on a third party trademark.  This type of issue could end up costing you tens of thousand of dollars — all money you could have saved by hiring a trademark lawyer to guide you through the process.

Gerben IP recognizes that a small investment upfront can help business owners avoid much larger costs — wasted time and/or money — later. When you hire Gerben IP’s trademark services, you can rest assured that Josh Gerben will do everything possible to make the trademark application process as smooth as possible. In the end, you’ll feel confident that trademark lawyer Josh Gerben provided you with outstanding professional advice during throughout the trademark filing process.

Trademark lawyer Josh Gerben can help you answer some important questions about your business before you even get started on filing an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. For example, are you the first person to applying for the name of your company, product or name? Although you might have a great idea for a name of a company, service or product, you don’t necessarily have the right to protect it. With Gerben IP, your trademark lawyer will search existing trademarks — including others’ application filings — to determine if someone else has already beat you to the trademark. In addition to identical matches, Josh Gerben will look for similar matches that USPTO’s trademark lawyers might flag. If they determine that a similar trademark in your industry too closely resembles your proposed trademark, they easily could reject your application.

After conducting a trademark search for you, Josh Gerben will evaluate the results and offer his professional opinion on the likelihood that USPTO might reject your trademark application. This information can save you money because you must pay a filing fee for each application, and, the USPTO will not refund your money. When you enter the trademark application process, you are risking several hundred dollars, in addition to the opportunity cost of several hours — maybe even days — of your time that you could be using to focus on your business. Trademark lawyer Josh Gerben can handle all of that often-tedious but critical research and work to help you avoid a mistake while seeking to earn you the most protection possible for the name of your company, products or services.

A significant portion of the tedious works involves wading through the USPTO trademark application forms. If you do not complete everything according to USPTO’s expectations, you risk receiving questions about your application, if not outright rejection. To minimize your risk of rejection and maximize your legal protection, Josh Gerben will use the information he collects from the preliminary research and details you provide to fully complete the trademark application.

That level of customer service is critical for successful trademark applications. We consider success to be an application that delivers you the trademark you want with as much legal protection as possible. Josh Gerben will be ready to answer all your questions about the trademark process and work closely with you to ensure you can complete a success trademark application. For a modest investment, you will get a trademark lawyer who will devote his time and energy to shepherding you through the trademark application process.
