There are several steps involved with obtaining a trademark, and protecting your trademark will be an ongoing process – but don’t worry, G&A Legal will be there every step of the way! We prepare, file and prosecute trademark applications both in the United States and abroad. Once registered, we manage our clients’ trademark portfolio through our trademark watching, renewal and maintenance services.
From the pre-registration research that ensures your trademark is unique, to making sure your trademark registration will be renewed on time several years down the road, the G&A Legal team utilizes their extensive knowledge of trademark regulations and standards to keep your trademark on track.
G&A Legal offers clients the following trademark services:
- Ensuring that your trademark is protectable and distinct. G&A Legal will conduct and review searches of federal and state trademark applications and registrations and advise our clients on the potential risks involved with choosing a particular name, product configuration or advertising. Identical and confusingly similar marks may cause a road-block to registration of your mark. Our all-inclusive, in-depth searches prevent the problems before they start by making sure that you are applying for a trademark that is unique.
- Preparing and filing your state, federal and international trademark applications. G&A Legal’s extensive knowledge of state, federal and international trademark regulations and standards secures smooth-sailing for your trademark from application to registration. We work with United States Patent and Trademark Office or appropriate foreign agency directly on our client’s behalf.
- Careful protection and monitoring of your trademark. G&A Legal will monitor your trademarks and provide you with monthly reports analyzing similar marks filed with the United Stores Patent and Trademark Office. The monitoring program keeps a watchful eye on pending trademark applications and provides notice of potentially conflicting marks. If your protected trademark is being infringed upon, we will prepare cease and desist letters on your behalf.
- Providing continuous updates on the registration status of your trademark. Failure to maintain your trademark can result in the loss of your trademark or unnecessarily limiting your rights. G&A Legal is available to assist you with your trademark maintenance.
