To protect your trademark, a trademark application is filed. The filing of the trademark application is the start of trademark prosecution. We can file a trademark application for you which will be based on the proposed mark and description of goods and services used during the search step. The search is an optional step and if none was performed, we will craft a description of goods and services at this time which is designed to provide broad trademark protection for your proposed mark.
Once the description of goods and services is approved, we will file your trademark application. For the trademark application, we will need the entity that will own the trademark application, the exact wording of the proposed mark and an approved description of goods and services.
Once the trademark application is filed, we will advise you of any deadlines to file foreign trademark applications and any office actions rendered by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). We will report the office actions to you and recommend next steps on how to respond. We will work together to craft a response that suits your business and your goals.
Each step along the way, you will know what to do and also the reasons behind each step. If you should ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
