If you need a trademark attorney to help with a trademark search, registration/application, or enforcement, contact the business law experts at Brian Webb Legal.
What is a trademark?
A trademark is a word, symbol, or phrase, used to identify a particular manufacturer or seller’s products and distinguish them from the products of another. When such marks are used to identify services, rather than products, they are called service marks, (however service marks are usually handled the same as trademarks).
Why file for a trademark?
Many Idaho business owners spend countless hours, along with their blood, sweat, and tears building up a company and reputation that they are proud of, and that customer recognize as a quality service provider. If some other business attempted to use a similar name or symbol and was profiting from your hard earned good reputation, it would not only be frustrating, but potentially harmful for your business.
By registering your trademark, (name, logo, tagline) your are proving ownership of your marks. This prevents others from using your name or marks, and will help avoid costly lawsuits, and quick resolutions in the event of infringement.
Unlike many of the DIY, or self help trademark services, at Brian Webb Legal, your trademark search and application will handled by an experienced trademark attorney. You’ll get one on one consultation and access to personally discuss your trademark needs.
How does the trademark application process work?
The process starts with an initial consultation to discuss your specific needs.
Next an extensive search is performed by our attorneys to see if there are any existing trademarks or similar registration that might cause a conflict.
After the search your trademark lawyer will discuss the search results, and if there are no issues, our office prepares and submits your trademark application.
Our experts then monitor the application as it is processed at the US Patent and Trademark Office.
You’ll then receive your certificate!
