Why Hire an Experienced Trademark Attorney
When we started FlatFeeTrademark.com in 2008, there were primarily two options available to register your trademark, these were either through hiring a trademark attorney or without hiring a trademark attorney.
One was to work with a local trademark attorney who would charge exorbitant hourly fees to search your trademark and then additional fees to prepare and file the trademark application.
The other was to hire a document-preparation service to “zoom” through your trademark paperwork without so much as a glance from a trademark attorney or other qualified legal professional.
The USPTO Registration Process
Trademark law in the United States is complicated. It may appear straightforward, but the trademark application process is subject to specific regulations, unique filing requirements and is strictly administered by the USPTO and its team of trademark Examiners. There are a myriad possibilities for mistakes with the trademark search and application process that could result in the USPTO refusing registration of your trademark so there are several distinct advantages to working with a trademark attorney, not least of which is to reduce costly errors and expenses during the trademarking process.
As a part of our Comprehensive Trademark Search & Application Package, a trademark attorney conducts an in-depth search of your trademark name or logo design, reviews your trademark search for potential conflicts and then prepares an Attorney Opinion Letter that explains your search results and how they may affect your registration process at the USPTO.
Flat Fee Trademark is not an attorney referral service. Our trademark attorneys personally prepare every trademark application. We provide legal advice and counsel you every step of the way to obtain the most comprehensive legal protection for your trademark as it is our aim to reduce the number of erroneous trademark applications filed by entrepreneurs and start-ups that can least afford to waste precious time and resources on simple mistakes during the trademark process. Working with a trademark attorney is also cost effective for your business. It can cost less to register your trademark with help from one of our experienced trademark attorneys than without one.
Using a Trademark Attorney Minimizes Risk of USPTO Refusal
If the USPTO refuses registration the Examiner will issue an Office Action against your application resulting in you having to file a response to overcome the Examiner’s findings or if the USPTO refuses registration of your mark for any reason, the fees paid are non-refundable. Working with a trademark attorney from Flat Fee Trademark, you can trust we will handle your trademark application in a timely, professional manner from start to finish.
By working with a trademark attorney from the outset additional fees can be avoided.
