Trademark Search Service

1. Comprehensive Trademark Search

We start by conducting a comprehensive trademark clearance search that involves searching the United States Patent and Trademark Office database, trademark databases for all fifty states, common law trademark databases, and domain name databases. Typically, the trademark search takes 2-3 business days. To ensure the best results for our clients, our trademark search is more comprehensive and complete than an “exact match” screening. For example, if your mark is GREAT we would locate the name GR8 within our search results.

2. Legal Opinion Letter

After we conduct the trademark clearance search, we draft a legal opinion letter based on those results. We will then email you that letter along with the trademark search report for your review.

3. Phone Consultation with a Trademark Attorney

Our attorney will contact you for a consultation regarding these results.

Trademark Registration Service

4. FREE Trademark Search!

If we provide you with the legal opinion that you are unlikely to register your trademark because of conflicting mark you will receive a second trademark search for FREE! You can decide on any other name and we will run another comprehensive search. We will provide you a second opinion via email accompanied with another search report detailing the marks found in the second trademark search.

5. Filing U.S. Trademark Registration Online

Once we have discussed your trademark search results, our trademark attorney carefully drafts and files the application for one international class of goods/services with the United States Patent and Trademark Office through their online service. The application is filed within 48 hours of your approval.

6. Trademark Attorney Monitors Your Application

After the application is filed, we monitor its status, respond to non-substantive Office actions* and notify you of any required responses to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Basically, we keep you updated through the trademark registration process.

Once the trademark registration is approved, we mail you the certificate from the United States Patent and Trademark Office along with a packet of information from our law firm.

*The United States Patent and Trademark Office fee for a U.S. trademark registration is $225 or $275 per international class depending on the filing basis as well as any changes or amendments during the application process. Intent-to-use applications filed on a 1(b) basis will incur an additional United States Patent and Trademark Office filing fee of $100 for filing an Amendment to Allege Use or a Statement of Use. Clients have the option to add additional classes to the registration for a legal fee of $99 per class plus the required government fee.

** Non-substantive Office actions are defined as Office actions related to issues with the legal entity status or citizenship of the applicant, the identification of goods or services, improper specimens, or improper dates of use. Substantive Office actions (not covered) are based on more complicated problems identified by the Examining Attorney and require a more thorough analysis. Substantive Office actions include, but are not limited to, statutory prohibitions, such as refusals based on likelihood of confusion, mere descriptiveness (or generic marks), misdescriptiveness, surnames, or scandalous marks. Upon receipt of a substantive Office action, we will provide a free evaluation to determine whether or not the issue can be resolved and provide an estimate of the fees associated with responding to the Office action.
