To protect your trademark, a knock-out search is conducted, and if cleared a trademark application is filed. The filing of the trademark application is the start of trademark prosecution. The knock-out search is used to mitigate any future issues. The trademark application will be based on your mark and description of goods and services crafted during the consultation. The description of goods and services will be based on your description of how the mark will be used.
After the consultation, we will send you the information we covered during the consultation. At this time, you will have the opportunity to review and approve the particulars of the trademark application. Once the mark and description of goods and services are approved, we will file your trademark application.
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 any office actions to you and recommend the 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.
