There are often more than 1,000 trademark applications filed on any given day.  We discuss with you the pertinent provisions of trademark law and how they apply to you and your business.  We perform a comprehensive search of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and perform common law searches (google, secretary of state websites and other sources relevant to your goods/services)  to search for any possible conflicting marks that that could lead to a likelihood of confusion refusal or an opposition or cancellation proceeding down the road.  We will also discuss other potential bars to registration, such as whether your mark (or proposed mark) may be considered descriptive, generic or scandalous/immoral/disparaging.

If you receive an office action refusing registration for any reason, we can discuss your options and write extensive, research-based, replies in an effort to have the refusal withdrawn. Email us at to discuss any such office action received from the USPTO examining attorney assigned to your application.  We will discuss  the viability of a response and any other options relevant to your set of circumstances before taking action.
