Benefits of a registered trademark.
Registration will help you:
How much does trademark registration cost?
How long does it take?
Typically, preparing and filing a trademark application takes a few days after we receive everything we need from you.
Most trademark applications are processed by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) within six months after filing. If registration is approved without any other office action, the proposed registration is then published and, approximately 60 days thereafter, the registration is issued.
If the examining attorneys at the USPTO initially refuse registration, a reply period begins. During this time, the applicant may submit legal arguments and additional evidence in support of the proposed registration. Depending on the complexity of the matter, this process may take as little as a few days, or as long as six months.
Why can't I just do this myself?
It is possible to file a trademark application yourself. For more information, visit the United States Patent and Trademark Office website. For a significant portion of do-it-yourself trademark applicants, the process is confusing and overwhelming. Improperly prepared applications can result in lost time, wasted money, and denial of registration. Our office is frequently called upon to "fix" these situations, typically at much higher cost than if we'd initially prepared the application. Our experienced attorneys and staff will advise, counsel, and assist with the selection of your trade- or servicemark, assembly of application materials and specimens, preparation of the application, and follow-up with the USPTO.
