Trademark Filing and Registration

We are committed to guiding you through every stage of the trademark registration process, ensuring that your brand is protected and distinguished in the marketplace.

Trademark Registration Process

Step 1: Opinion Letter

Before proceeding with your trademark application, we provide a comprehensive opinion letter. This letter outlines the potential risks associated with your mark, such as the likelihood of confusion with another registered mark or the registrability of your mark according to USPTO standards. Our team conducts thorough searches and clearance reports to assess the availability and suitability of your mark.

Step 2: Application Through the USPTO

Once we determine that your mark poses low or tolerable risks, we handle all aspects of the application process with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). By gaining a thorough understanding of your brand and assessing whether your mark is in-use (1(a)) or intent-to-use (1(b)), along with its appropriate class of goods or services, we ensure the accurate and efficient filing of your application.

Step 3: Post-Application Assistance

After your application submission, we provide ongoing support for post-application filings with the USPTO. This includes managing Notices of Allowance (NoA) and responding to Office Action Requests (OAR), ensuring the smooth progress of your trademark registration. Additionally, we take the stress off your shoulders by ensuring compliance with deadlines that directly impact your registration process.
