Registering a trademark can ensure that a business or product name or logo is under proper ownership. It can protect against new trademarks that are similar and can be confusing to clients. Registering a trademark gives businesses the exclusive right to use their mark across all 50 states and sue for infringement in Federal court.
How to Register a Trademark
Before registering for a trademark, trademark attorneys can provide thorough clearance searches for their clients’ proposed mark to ensure they are aware of all possible issues. Once the Federal trademark search is completed, trademark attorneys can continue to draft, file, and prosecute the mark registration application. Once the mark clears this publication process, it will register after several weeks.
