US Trademark Registration

What does the trademark registration service include?

Good question.

My trademark package includes the following services:

  • Initial review of your proposed trademark and counseling on how to make it stronger
  • Various levels of clearance search, depending on the options you choose. This can go from an exact match search to a more comprehensive AI-assisted clearance process!
  • Preparing and filing your trademark application with the USPTO
  • Responding to any procedural or non-substantive refusals or other issues that come up during the registration process
  • I’ll keep you updated throughout the process and explain each step as it happens

I’ve set up my trademark service to suit every budget. You can choose various options throughout the signup process, depending on your needs.

Just fill out the form above, add it to your cart, and pay the fee. I’ll take care of the rest!

Do I need a trademark registration?

There are a ton of benefits to performing a comprehensive trademark clearance search and filing a US trademark registration.

  • You can avoid infringing on existing trademarks and the legal trouble that comes with it
  • You can “reserve” your future trademark rights before actually selling your game, by filing an “intent to use” trademark application
  • You’re able to file a trademark infringement lawsuit in federal court
  • You’ll be able to take advantage of Amazon’s Brand Registry to fight counterfeits and trademark infringement
  • You can more easily take down infringers on app stores and other platforms by showing a valid trademark registration
  • You can get US customs to help stop counterfeits from entering the US

That being said, it’s not a requirement, but it is highly recommended. We can work together to find a trademark registration package that works for you and your business.

Can I do it by myself?

You can, but I’d caution against that.

There are a lot of nuances to trademark law and the registration process that can trip up non-attorneys. A decent chunk of my trademark work involves helping clients to fix mistakes that were made in the process.

In fact, the USPTO recommends that anyone filing a trademark application have the advice of an attorney.

If you’re an international client located outside of the US, the USPTO now requires that you have a US attorney represent you. I’d be happy to help, whether you’re bringing an existing trademark into the US or starting from scratch!
