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

Josh Gerben, Washington. D.C. Trademark Attorney

At Gerben Law Firm, our practice focuses on one thing and on doing it well: filing trademark applications. Since opening the practice in Washington DC back in 2008, Gerben Law Firm has been built from the ground up as a trademark-focused practice.

By working with each client personally, keeping overhead costs low, and streamlining the trademark search and registration process, we are able to charge significantly less than larger law firms in Washington DC while offering comparable services. Our flat fee price structure makes it possible for small businesses to afford the help of a DC trademark lawyer when filing a trademark application.

Further, it has been the philosophy of our Washington DC based trademark law firm that each client’s needs are unique, which is why we developed Josh Gerben’s ONE-ON-ONE® trademark registration service. As a client of Gerben Law Firm, you will not only experience a true attorney-client relationship, you will enjoy the benefits of individual advice and of working with an experienced DC trademark attorney (Josh Gerben) who has filed over 5,500 trademarks. From the beginning stages of conducting your trademark search to achieving registration, we believe in giving each client the individual attention necessary to ensure the success of your trademark application.

At Gerben Law Firm, focusing solely on trademark law has paid off. Since opening our first office in Washington DC, Gerben Law Firm has processed thousands of applications. In fact, in 2010 trademark attorney Josh Gerben was named the #3 trademark filer in the United States (according to the Corporation Service Company’s annual survey).

As our DC based trademark law firm grows, we continue to strive to offer individual attention and personalized advice to our clients for a fraction of the cost of larger DC law firms.

What is some of our clients saying?


“Trademark attorney Josh Gerben was responsive to our needs, returned my emails & phone calls promptly, gave me a very good explanation of the chances for success and a very good understanding of the process.

“My experience with Gerben Law Firm was easy and efficient. The good thing about Josh is that he promptly answered all my emails and doubts.”

“Mr. Gerben helped us filing and getting trademark for one of our software products. He was very prompt in taking necessary actions. We did not have to worry about anything once we engaged his service in filing trademark. He made it a smooth process.”

– Sunil Shrestha, Ph. D.
President of Universolutions, LLC – near (Alexandria, VA) Washington, DC

“Josh came very highly recommended by his peers at another law firm we were working with on non-trademark requirements for funseek, LLC. With the Gerben Law firm you get incredible efficiency and excellent expertise at an economical rate. The whole trademark process was seamless thanks to Josh!”

– Archana Jaiswal
Founder and CEO, funseek, LLC – near (Vienna, VA) Washington, DC

“If you are looking for a firm to take the ball and run with a “Trademark Renewal” task without having to worry about hourly rates or surprise invoices in the mail that charge you for a two minute phone call that you made to ask an easy question, than this is the firm to go with. We now know that for tasks like “Trademark Renewals”, it is a huge risk to use a firm with an hourly rate structure because the fees charged for time spent on short phone calls and or even e-mails sent back and forth, can add up very quickly. Gerben Law Firms easy flat rate cost structure gave us the comfort level that we needed mainly because we had a specific budget to stick to for our “Trademark Renewal” and our renewal process with Josh was efficient, smooth and completed on time. Do yourself a favor and use Josh and his firm for anything related to your Trademark because you know it will get done right the first time for a reasonable one time fee.”
