Orange County Trademark Attorney
Our Orange County trademark attorneys provide a full range of trademark services including initial counseling, clearance opinions, search services, and preparation and filing of applications in the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Owning a registered trademark comes with a host of benefits, including the right to use the federal registration symbol (®), the ability to bring a cause of action in federal court against trademark infringers, and putting the public on notice of your claim to ownership.
Before applying for any trademark, however, you should always conduct a trademark search. Adopting, using, and registering a trademark, without doing so, can be a risky and ultimately expensive mistake. Tens of thousands of applications are filed with the USPTO every year, and even more trademarks are used without a registration. Unregistered trademarks, however, do not have the same rights and advantages as a registered federal trademark as discussed above.
After the search, we can begin the process of filing the application. Once the USPTO receives the application, a government attorney will examine it, and issue an opinion on whether your trademark is registerable. Our competent team of trademark attorneys are well equipped to argue on your behalf in the event the government attorney disallows the application.
We are well aware of the value that trade names can hold, and we will work together to help you register and protect your trademarks. Contact us to set up an appointment with one of our Orange County trademark attorneys today.
Registering a trademark can be a tricky thing. There are so many existing trademarks and existing logos that the task of coming up with a completely new trademark can feel daunting. Fortunately, we are here to help you craft your trademark, along with any words, names, symbols, shapes or colors that you feel will best represent your business, in such a way that you will not infringe upon any existing trademarks. We have access to the US Patents and Trademarks Office and we will thoroughly search its database for the availability of your favored trademark so that you can safely avoid future claims of trademark infringement.
