Trademarks are important assets to any business. If you operate or plan to operate a business using a name or logo, you are dealing with trademarks whether you realize it or not. If you care about the value your business’s good name provides, you should consider protecting it.
Trademarks are source identifiers for a company’s goods and services that get stronger each time a customer has a positive experience with the company’s offering. If your business is expanding its market reach, or if it is offering new products or services, you may want to register your mark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
The attorneys at Arnold Law Firm, PLLC can help you develop, implement, and protect your brand strategy. Whether you are just starting out, ramping up, maximizing value, or looking for an exit, Arnold Law Firm, PLLC can help you make the most of your trademark assets.
Here is how we help you with your trademarks:
1. Review your brand strategy
Whether your brand is new or mature, we can help maximize opportunities to create value. That process can involve determining the availability of and advisability of pursuing a particular mark for use, registration, or licensing.
2. Deal with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on your behalf
Whether you have yet to file for federal trademark registration, have received preliminary denial of your application, or have need to seek remedies though the Trademark Office, the attorneys at Arnold Law Firm, PLLC can help you. Don’t let uncertainty or fear of the registration process prevent you from securing your trademark rights! We can help you properly file for trademark registration in a way best suited to meet your company’s needs.
If you have already applied for trademark registration and your application has been rejected, the examiner’s objections must be timely addressed in order for your application to proceed to registration. Do not delay! We can help you respond to USPTO Office Actions to prevent abandonment of your application.
Please note that even if the trademark examiner has denied your application based upon significant substantive legal objections, experienced counsel may be able to overcome those objections by reference to federal case law, including Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) precedent, and reference to the Trademark Manual of Examining Procedure (TMEP). Our attorneys have experience dealing with trademark prosecution, including successfully overcoming negative Office Actions.
