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

San Diego, CA Businesses Use Trademark Attorney Services

*Please note that while Gerben Law Firm, PLLC is not located in San Diego, it can work with companies and individuals from California in registering a federal trademark because it is a federal matter.

A trademark can dramatically contribute to the success of your product, service, or invention; however, navigating the trademark registration process can be difficult. Trademark attorney Josh Gerben at Gerben Law Firm, PLLC can help your San Diego, California business register its trademark and protect it once registered.

At Gerben Law Firm we use the ONE-ON-ONE™ trademark registration service. The ONE-ON-ONE™ service was developed to ensure that each client receives individualized attention and guidance throughout the registration process and beyond. Because each trademark is unique, the application process is never the same for any two trademarks. Gerben Law Firm, PLLC understands this and is dedicated to providing each applicant with a true attorney-client experience that focuses on your specific needs and goals.

The Trademark Process

Registering a trademark is typically a lengthy process that begins with searching the United States Patent and Trademark Office, or USPTO, records to ensure that your proposed trademark is not already in use. From there, an application is filed and subjected to a rigorous review by the USPTO. Although the USPTO provides online forms for applicants to use they also strongly encourage applicants to retain the services of an experienced trademark lawyer given the complexity of the process. Trademark attorney Josh Gerben has helped many San Diego clients just like you to register and protect a trademark. Let him put his experience and expertise to work for you.

Protecting Your Trademark

Registering your trademark is only the beginning. After registration you will need to continuously monitor your investment and renew it as required by the USPTO. You may also find that someone infringes on your trademark rights at some point down the road. Because trademark lawyer Josh Gerben develops one-on-one relationships with his San Diego clients you can rest assured that he will continue to protect your trademark for as long as is remains active.

When marketed properly a trademark can add a significant amount of value to your business. Given the importance of your trademark it makes good business sense to work with trademark attorneys who have experience with businesses in San Diego, California, like Gerben Law Firm, PLLC.
