Mesa, AZ businesses that intend to register for trademark protection can benefit from using experienced trademark attorney Josh Gerben of Gerben Law Firm, PLLC to ensure success in the process.
The Gerben Law Firm employs the customized ONE-ON-ONE™ approach created by trademark attorney Josh Gerben. No two trademarks are the same, nor are applications for trademark registration.

The partnership is intended to respond to individual needs and accommodate identified goals throughout the registration process.
The Trademark Registration Process
The procedures and paperwork for Mesa companies seeking to file a trademark application are complicated. Before filling out the proper forms, it’s necessary to conduct a thorough search of the USPTO records to see if another applicant with the same trademark has already been approved. After concluding that the proposed trademark is not currently in use, the appropriate forms are completed and the application can be sent to the USPTO. Once received, the application undergoes a painstaking review process by USPTO attorneys. Due to the complex trademark search and application process, the agency recommends that potential applicants consult with an accomplished trademark attorney who has extensive experience in registrations. Trademark attorney Josh Gerben has successfully processed applications for thousands of companies seeking U.S. trademark registration to protect their brand.
Safeguarding Your Livelihood
Upon approval of a trademark application by the USPTO, the registration becomes a valuable asset to a company, and should be protected as such. U.S. trademark law provides remedies to businesses if they find that another company has or is attempting to infringe upon their trademark rights. When it becomes necessary to confront that person or entity for trademark violations, trademark lawyer Josh Gerben has experience in determining strategy to address the infringement. Frequently, asserting the trademark protections and demanding a cease and desist from using the mark will convince the violator to stop using it. However, in the event that additional efforts become necessary, Josh Gerben represents clients at all phases of litigation.
In addition to the initial filing for trademark protection, there are ongoing obligations to ensure that the registration remains current. The USPTO has periodic requirements for renewal of trademark registrations, and Gerben Law Firm constantly monitors the agency’s regulations to stay current with these mandates. Meza, Arizona companies that retain us to register their trademarks can be confident that the proper filings are made within the USPTO deadlines.
