The trade mark application process begins with a telephone or in-person consultation with the lawyer. We will discuss your brand registration needs and screen your trademark for the potential grounds for objection or refusal. We perform a knock out search at the beginning of the call. If the name or logo is already registered for the same or similar goods, there is little sense in continuing. We can discuss choosing or how to come up with a name for your business trademark use.
Part of the trademark registration process is to educate clients as to how trademark law actually works. We want clients to be well informed and confident knowing how the process works and what to expect.
In order to complete the trademark or logo registration process, the owner must show that the mark is being used in commerce. For goods or products, this means you’ve sold branded product. For service based trademark applications, this means you’ve rendered the services identified in the trademark application using the name or logo you applied for in the trademark application.
