Our legal team has the necessary experience and resources necessary to ensure your filing process go effortlessly.
How to register
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s website has an online registration form. You will first need to check the website’s trademark electronic search system’s database to make sure that another company doesn’t have an identical or similar name. U.S. trademark protection grants someone to use a mark in the geographic area regardless of where they operate. For instance: Denver Printing Company maybe a company located in the suburbs and you are located in Denver and want that name, they registered it, it’s theirs. If you choose something that is already registered by another name, your registration will be rejected.
Online trademark registration costs about $300. You will need information on the categories of goods and services for which you’ll use the mark, the date of its first use, and if it is a design component to a mark that you’re seeking. You should receive a response to your application within six months of filing.
