What Is A Trademark?

A trademark protects all of your branding elements (e.g., your business name, logo, slogan, tag-line, course or program name, even product packaging). Owning your trademark gives you the right to stop copycats from using the same or similar mark to sell their products and services.

Without trademark registration, you don't legally own the rights to the name of your business, logo, slogan, or any of your brand assets.

The trademark registration process takes anywhere between 8-18 months.

Although registration is not guaranteed, as a serious business owner, you owe it to yourself to make sure that your brand is 100% yours.

Why Do You Need Trademark Protection?

  • To have peace of mind knowing that you're not infringing on anyone else's rights.
  • To feel secure knowing that you can confidently stop others from copying your brand
  • To benefit from your advertising efforts when someone researches your brand
  • To be taken seriously as a brand
  • To leverage your trademark ownership rights in business deals
  • To receive a tax break since your trademark registration is a tax-deductible business expense
  • To sleep better at night knowing that you own the legal rights to your brand over the next 10 years

"The process took less than a year to finalize because of Zara's due diligence."

Thanks to Zara, I own my first trademark for my t-shirt brand, Lider x Falouer. The process took less than a year to finalize because of Zara's due diligence. As a rising entrepreneur, I was drawn to Zara's mission to help brands and businesses protect their intellectual property. She sets the bar high for trademark attorneys, and I am happy that I retained her legal services!

Trademark Registration Steps

Step 1: Complete Trademark Intake Form

I will send you a trademark intake form to complete so that I can gather background information on your mark and your business that will help me perform the trademark search and that will help me file your application.

Step 2: Trademark Search

I will conduct a thorough federal, state, and common law trademark clearance search utilizing software provided by CORSEARCH to make sure that your mark isn't already taken. Corsearch is an industry-leading trademark search software that we use on every trademark search. I provide you with a written report analyzing my search findings and will alert you to any risks. I then provide 30-Minute Call to discuss the search results and decide the next steps.

Step 3: File Trademark Application

From the questionnaire that you completed, I will use the information you provided to prepare your application. I will provide instructions on what types of proof the United States Patent and Trademark Office accepts.

We work together to select the best form of evidence to submit and we decide on which classifications to file and how to best describe your trademark.

Once you provide the required information and materials and assuming the mark is available, I’ll file your trademark application with the USPTO.

I monitor your application, handle all correspondence with the USPTO examining attorney throughout the 8-18 month process.

I handle all emails, calls, and any additional information requested from the USPTO, including responding to Office Actions. Most law firms do not include responses to Office Actions as part of their fee.

 


Here's What You Get!

The trademark application package includes:

  • Trademark Questionnaire to gather information
  • Comprehensive Search of federal and state trademark law databases using state of the art software Corsearch
  • Opinion Letter summarizing search results

"Zara is not only thorough, organized, and extremely knowledgeable about every in and out of trademark law, but she is deeply supportive, thoughtful, and compassionate."

What I knew about Trademarking: It is necessary if you want to grow your own business. What I did not know: It is a nearly year-long process of back and forth with USTPO attorneys, other businesses, revisions, and check-ins. After going through this process, I can honestly say that there is no way I could have done it successfully without Zara. Zara is not only thorough, organized, and extremely knowledgeable about every in and out of trademark law, but she is deeply supportive, thoughtful, and compassionate. If things were difficult on her end, I would never know it, because Zara made me feel like my trademark process was the only thing she was working on. Never perturbed by a question and always available when I needed her, it is clear to me that Zara does her absolute best for every client. Plus, she was incredibly transparent about the cost, timeline, and logistics of the process. Kindness + Honesty + Skills = the perfect Trademark Attorney. Honestly, I cannot recommend Zara enough. Thank you Zara!

What Is This Going to Cost Me?

My question to you is what is not securing your trademark going to cost you over the next ten years?

If you compare the cost of having to stop using a mark after spending years building up the value of the mark through advertising and marketing campaigns, and the over $100,000 cost of litigating a trademark dispute, it becomes clear that hiring an expert trademark attorney is the less expensive alternative.  

You could keep building your brand, gaining more visibility, and exposing your brand unprotected, but I’m sure that this isn’t a risk that you’re willing to take.   

Let’s secure your mark!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the trademark registration process?

  • The rule of thumb is to budget at least one year for the entire trademark registration process. Because the registration process takes some time depending on what occurs after you file your application, it's important to get the process started right away.

Do you offer payment plans?

  • Yes, we offer payment plans.

What Is a Trademark Classification?

  • You receive trademark protection based on the category or "classification" that you file under. Each trademark application is required to include a list of the specific products and services that you sell or plan to sell in connection with your trademark. The USPTO categorizes all products and services into 45 different classifications.

How do I know which classification to file under?

  • Depending on the type of product or service that you're selling, we will assist you in determining the specific classification to file your application under. We will discuss this with you during our post-search consultation call.

How will I know if the trademark I'd like to register is already taken?

  • During the trademark clearance search process, we might come across marks that are "confusingly similar or identical" to your mark(s) and will let you know via a legal opinion report what the search results entail. We will go over this report together and we will decide how to best move forward.

What do I have to submit to you?

  • We will send you an intake form and will let you know the appropriate forms of proof, called specimen, and any other documentation that we will need to submit to the USPTO.

I live outside of New York, can I still work with you to register my trademark?

  • Absolutely! Trademark registration falls under federal law, so we work with clients from all 50 states.

Who Is This Registration Process Not For?

  • This specific registration process outlined above isn’t for you if you already have a pending application with the United States Patent and trademark OFfice (USPTO). If you would like us to handle your current filing on your behalf, we'd love to help! Please email [email protected]

I have more questions, how can I get in touch?

  • We’d love to talk with you! Please reach out to us at [email protected] My team and I are standing by to answer any of your questions and to make sure you're able to make the best decision possible.
