Three Steps We've Used to Register 5,500 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 5,500 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.

Breakdown of Our Trademark Service

A Few of Our Local PA Clients

From my first inquiry to completed registration of my trademarks, they have been THE MOST RESPONSIVE team I have ever encountered! They are a professional TEAM of attorneys, responsive (note-attorneys and responsive typically do not go in the same sentence) and accessible! Their process is comforting to someone like me who had no clue what to do. If you are hunting for an attorney for trademarks or patents, I highly recommend Gerben Intellectual Property!

Additional Information on Trademark Registration for Pennsylvania Businesses

The diverse economy of Pennsylvania and its mix of urban and rural areas makes it a great state to open a new business. Whether you plan to open a roofing business in Harrisburg or expand your restaurant chain in Philadelphia, you may be wondering how to protect your brand. The best way to do this is through trademark registration and the assistance from a Pennsylvania trademark attorney.

Consider this scenario: Kara is a health enthusiast living in the Pittsburgh suburb of Upper St. Clair. She’s always wanted to open her own business, and one morning, while juicing some fruits and vegetables for breakfast, an idea starts to form. Kara decides to open her own juice cart to sell freshly squeezed juices to visitors of the many parks in the area. She gets right to work designing her logo and custom juice cart, which includes the business name she’s chosen, Squeezed. Kara orders cups, napkins, menus, and more all containing the Squeezed name. It’s a costly investment, but Kara knows that building a strong brand is essential to her future success.

Unfortunately, while Kara seems to have thought of everything to establish her brand, she overlooked the importance of trademark registration. Several months after the Squeezed cart opens and Kara has seen success, she learns some devastating news. A large beverage brand has developed its own line of bottled juices with the same name. Because the beverage company applied for trademark registration months before Kara opened her business, they are well within their rights to ask her to close down until she has rebranded her business. Don’t put off protecting your brand and investment. If you’ve been in business for years or you are still in the development phase, now is the time to register your trademark.
