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.

Trademark Registration for Oakland Companies

For businesses in Oakland, trademark registration is often a long and difficult process, one that involves multiple steps and requirements. First, the business must conduct meticulous USPTO records searching, in order to confirm that no one else is already using the proposed trademark. Once that is complete, the trademark then needs to be filed with the USPTO. After being turned in, the trademark application undergoes rigorous review, which is why it’s so crucial that the application be filed correctly. Because this process tends to be complicated and sometimes is hard to understand, the USPTO highly recommends that applicants enlist the services of experienced trademark attorneys like Josh Gerben.

After the Trademark Is Registered

Even after a business has successfully registered its trademark, its job is not done. Moving forward, it must guard that trademark carefully, and it must renew the trademark as mandated by the USPTO. When another business or individual uses your trademarked information in an unauthorized manner, trademark lawyer Josh Gerben can help to determine the best way to respond. Likewise, when it’s time to renew a specific trademark, Gerben Law Firm is available to help with the required paperwork and details.
