*Please note that while Gerben Law Firm is not located in New Mexico, it can assist businesses from New Mexico in registering a federal trademark because it is a federal matter.
Businesses located in Albuquerque should consider trademarking their products and services if they have not already done so. Trademark attorney Josh Gerben is the founder of the Gerben Law Firm which works exclusively in trademark law. He has prepared thousands of trademark applications for clients across the U.S. and has the experience necessary to be sure that your application meets all the filing requirements.
Mr. Gerben feels so strongly about the importance of trademarks that he trademarked his own style of practicing trademark law called ONE-ON-ONE.™ This means you will work directly with him, not associates or paralegals, during the entire application and registration process for your Albuquerque business.
By registering a trademark, you ensure protection for the names, logos and slogans which you use to set your business apart from any other Albuquerque business. Once you have registered your trademark, no other business can use the trademark for similar goods and/or services whether that business is located in Albuquerque or anywhere else in the U.S.
Mr. Gerben begins his service by conducting a comprehensive trademark search using a professional grade trademark search software. This process takes approximately one week.
If the trademark you want for your Albuquerque business has already been taken, he will offer you a second search for a different trademark free of charge.
After completing your trademark search, Attorney Gerben then prepares your trademark application for filing. If the US Government approves the trademark application, a registration certificate will be issued (generally about 8 months after the filing of the application).
Once your trademark has been registered, it will need to be periodically renewed. In addition, Attorney Gerben offers a monitoring program to prevent and detect any infringement upon the trademark for your Albuquerque business.
