Thousands of trademark law suits are filed in US courts every year
with an average cost of full litigation of about $400,000, enough to wipe out a business.
Yet, many of these disputes could have been completely avoided by doing a trademark search. You should always start with your own discrete search on the internet and through other sources easy for you to use. If that goes well, you should follow it up with a professional search.
Our proprietary trademark search process:
- takes into consideration the many factors that courts use to decide if brands are too close
- is usually much more rigorous than the searching done at the US Trademark Office, and
- includes explaining the results of the search to you in plain language
Our clients tell us that they sleep well at night because of how we do our searches and how we prepare our applications. Many law firms just hand the job to prepare an application to a paralegal and then sign off when it is ready. Our process includes a multi-level checklist review designed to ferret out problems before the application is filed. Accordingly, our success rate in getting registered trademarks is significantly higher than the average, at least in part due to our unique ways of searching and preparing applications to be filed.
Streamlined Full Service Trademark Packages
Depending on who is filing you application, the chances of it being registered range from 60% to only 30%. That is risky. So, we studied the application process and found where people were having their biggest challenges. Our filing process deals with those, so our value and results are significantly better than the average law firm. Many of our customers tell us that they prefer all-in pricing instead of recurring or open-ended billing (e.g. a typical law firm will have billed you 15 – 25 times by the end of the ten year mark of your trademark).
