A trademark search looks for potential conflicting trademarks. We then advise our client of the likelihood of success in obtaining the desired name as a trademark.
Trademarks are filed in one or more classes. As with patents, an office action can be issued rejecting the trademark application. An office action response can be used to make amendments to your application, argue why the Trademark should be granted, and to correct procedural issues. Our fixed fees for drafting and filing a trademark application start at $600.00*.
Trademark Renewal Fees
Trademarks need to be renewed between the 5th and 6th year, and every 10 years thereafter. You can also file a Statement of Incontestability which sets forth a claim that a mark registered on the Principal Register is now incontestable at this time.
Trademark Appeals, Oppositions, and Cancellations
Appeals, oppositions, and cancellations appear before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB). Each of these matters can have significant impacts on the trademark rights of the owner and should not be treated lightly. We provide representation for all of these matters, whether defending or invalidating the mark.
*Please note that fixed fees cover our services only and do not include other costs such as drawings and filing fees.
