Each trademark is unique and so is every situation.

There are different paths to obtaining registration of your brand name on the trademark federal register. We work with our clients to understand the nuances and develop an individual and appropriate trademark and intellectual property strategy.

Start the trademark process with an evaluation.

The purpose of the trademark evaluation is to collect information from you about your brand and about the goods and services that you offer under the brand and to determine if the brand name you have chosen is available. Not every brand name can be registered on the federal register and we will advise you if your mark qualifies. We can also suggest how to modify your mark so that it can qualify.

We want to know about your goals – your reasons for seeking trademark protection and how owning your intellectual property will work for you.

We collect this information from you so:

  • We can do the right research.
  • Give you the right advice about the prospects for obtaining federal trademark protection for your brand.
  • Honestly discuss how that trademark will fit with your overall and business goals.

The trademark evaluation is a flat fee.

This fee includes:

  • Your initial meeting with one of our attorneys, where they’ll collect the information discussed above.
  • Having the trademark research conducted.
  • Having your attorney go through the results of the research to compare the results with what you have in mind
  • Included is having a follow up consultation with you to discuss:
  • The prospects of obtaining trademark registration on the principal register.
  • The appropriate strategies and steps you can take toward obtaining trademark registration

If you’re ready to get started with a trademark evaluation, contact our office.
