Alex and her team were awesome to work with. Good, fast and affordable, they say you can’t get all three, but I’d have to disagree in this case. I will gladly work with Alex again and recommend them to any business owner with trademark needs.

Why You Should Hire a Trademark Attorney
The procedures involved in filing a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office are complex. There are many non-obvious components that go into a successful trademark application. Even when using companies like LegalZoom, do-it-yourselfers often miss or fail to recognize important nuances in their trademark applications and the consequences can be severe. By using a trademark attorney you gain the benefit of having a professional that understands trademark law and the trademark process, which in turn will statistically increase your odds of a successful trademark registration.

Trademark Attorneys Outside the U.S.?
If you are an attorney located outside the U.S., feel free to use our firm to file your client’s U.S. registration. In accordance with U.S. law, “a foreign attorney who does not meet the requirements of 37 C.F.R. §11.14 cannot represent the applicant before the USPTO or sign a response to an Office action on behalf of the applicant.” Ensure your client has a U.S. trademark attorney who can respond. We can help file your trademark registration in the U.S. to avoid problems down the road.
The U.S. Trademark Registration Process
One of our trademark attorneys will review your file, complete a search, and file your trademark application within about a week. However, the USPTO process is a bit longer. The U.S. Trademark Office provides a detailed timeline for each type of trademark application. It takes roughly 3 to 6 months to hear back from the USPTO regarding your trademark application. At that point in time they will either approve or reject your trademark. If approved, your trademark will receive a Notice of Publication (approval, but has to go through the opposition period). Once approved, through a Notice of Publication, you will have to wait about a month for the mark to publish, and then anyone is given 30 days where they can oppose the mark if they feel it will harm their trademark. Once you get through the opposition period you have about another 2-3 months before you receive your trademark registration certificate or Notice of Allowance (for intent to use applications).
- 3-6 months for USPTO to respond to a trademark application
- 1-2 months for publication
- 1 month for opposition period
- 1-2 months for trademark registration or Notice of Allowance
- About 9-11 months total for an actual use application (intent to use trademark application depends on use date)
During the above process the trademark attorney working on your file will continually provide you updates regarding your trademark application.
