Trademarks are an important asset for many companies. A trademark identifies the source of goods and services, conveys an expectation of quality, and sets a company apart from its' competitors. Trademarks can also be monetized through licensing agreements and other means and even used as collateral for business loans! You want to ensure you are protecting your trademark and preserving its' value. Read below for more information on what trademark services INTELLEQUITY® offers.  


Trademark Searches

Not only should you be looking in state databases, and checking the internet and domain names, but to do it correctly, you should be conducting a national, and potentially worldwide search of similar marks and logos. This will ensure the mark you want to use will not infringe an existing mark, stands a good chance of being registered, is unique, and will not be diluted.


Make sure the mark you want to register is strong and stands a good chance of approval before you spend all that marketing money. The USPTO strongly encourages applicants to hire private attorneys for the trademark registration process, and this includes the search, as it can be complicated. I can conduct a detailed search of your proposed mark and identify and correct any potential issues of infringement or registrability with the USPTO. For more information, book a consult today!

Trademark Registration

Did you know that 1 in 5 trademark registrations are denied? Even if your application is not denied outright, you could still receive an office action which must be timely and correctly responded to before your mark will be approved. After that, there is the publication and opposition period that your mark must pass as well. Let INTELLEQUITY® help you do it right!

After conducting a comprehensive search, I can properly file an application for registration of your mark, which will greatly improve your chances of registration. In addition, if the USPTO sends an office action, I can respond and correct any deficiencies before your mark's registration is denied. I will equally defend any opposition that might come your way from another registrant. For more personalized information, book a consult today!

Attempt to register a trademark on your own, and receive a notice and objection from the examiner that your mark cannot be registered as provided for in the application? This type of notice is called an Office Action, and if not responded to promptly, can result in a complete denial of your trademark application. 

I can represent you in responding to the Office Action and help you keep your trademark application from being denied.  Learn more about Trademark Office Actions here, or For more personalized information, Book a consult today!
