U.S. and International Trademark Services
Our firm offers full trademark search and protection services. Trademark recognition is essential for a company to remain competitive. However, it is also important for a company to avoid infringing the trademark and trade-name rights of other businesses. We provide a complete line of trademark, company name and corporate name searches. These types of searches are essential in determining whether another business has superior rights in a selected trademark, company name or corporate name.
Note that our services are provided directly by licensed attorneys. Some of service providers on the Internet use clerks, administrative or office personnel. We believe that these matters are sufficiently important to warrant the attention of an experienced licensed professional.
A trademark attorney will (i) determine which search is most appropriate for a client's particular situation, (ii) evaluate the search results, and (iii) provide a written opinion as to whether a particular trademark or name is clear for use.
Once it is determined that a particular trademark is clear for use, we can then proceed to obtain a U.S. trademark registration for that trademark. A U.S. trademark registration provides nationwide rights to use the trademark and prevent other parties from using the same or confusingly similar trademark with the same or closely related goods or services.
